With the announcement of Oscar nominations this week comes the realization you're running out of time to see all the nominated films. Regal Entertainment Group has movie fans covered with the Regal Best Picture Film Festival, which will screen all nine films from Feb. 23 to March 4.

“As we continue to look for innovations to the moviegoing experience at our theaters, the Regal Best Picture Film Festival gives moviegoers the opportunity to see all 9 nominated films back on the big screen,” said Ken Thewes, chief marketing officer at Regal, in a news release. “These films are the best of 2017 and with the Festival Pass, moviegoers can make sure they see all nominated movies prior to the start of the awards show.”

For only $35, moviegoers have access to screenings of the nine best picture nominees, which will rotate on a schedule across 10 days. Festival passes are available now via the Regal mobile app.

Edwards Bakersfield Stadium 14, 9000 Ming Ave., is one of the dozens of Regal theaters participating. For a list of other participating theaters as well as ticketing information, visit regmovi.es/BPFF.
