“This year, Academy members nominated a film that was never licensed to AMC to play in our theatres. As such, it is not included in the AMC Best Picture Showcase,” the giant exhib says.
AMC, Regal and Cinemark are declining to incorporate Netflix’s Roma in their extraordinary screenings of Oscar best-picture nominees, proceeding with the long-term strain between the nation’s cinema owners and the streamer.
Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma grabbed 10 Academy Award designations Tuesday, including a first best-picture prize for Netflix. While Roma got a constrained, selective keep running in theaters, by far most of circuits declined to play the widely praised film, since Netflix doesn’t respect traditional theatrical windows.
Presently that Oscar noms have been declared, theater chains including AMC, Regal and Cinemark — the nation’s three biggest circuits — will start booking their yearly best-picture showcases, which is generally held two weeks previously the Oscar ceremony.
Be that as it may, Roma will be excluded.
“For more than a decade, movie-lovers have enjoyed the AMC best picture showcase to catch up on the nominated films that played at AMC throughout the prior year,” the company said in a statement. “This year, Academy members nominated a film that was never licensed to AMC to play in our theaters. As such, it is not included in the AMC best picture showcase.”
AMC, Cinemark and Regal are the three biggest film chains in the U.S.
