Previews of the Eight Movies Nominated For Best Picture Page 1

The Big Short

Bridge of Spies


                                        Mad Max Fury Road

Where you can see the movies NOW 

and other considerations.

 The Bridge of  Spies is now playing at the Cinemark 16  in  
Warren at 12 and   Dequindre.  This usually means it's theater  run is coming to a close often  at reduced ticket prices. The  Best Picture nomination  may change that.. Of note is the fact that the Cinemark is currently  the only theater we know of that is  still showing the big screen 3D  version of the Martian which is also a Best Picture nominee.. You can call the theatre at 586-558 -82-15
The Big Short is now playing at  both the Birmingham 8 and the Paladium with a cast that will keep in town for months.
Brooklyn Can be seen at the Maple. Both the Maple and it's sister theatre the Landmark in Royal Oak are Oscar nominee friendly and where you will find pictures witjh Best Actor and Actress nominees rated films as well as the obvoius best picture  contestants.
