It’s that time of year again: Oscar season. The few months when the members of the Academy remind you again and again that you neglected to see every great film that was released throughout the year. Last week we decided to bring back the Academy Award nominee SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK to the Village, but we knew that wouldn’t be enough.
Starting tomorrow the Alamo Lake Creek will have Ang Lee’s emotional, epic screen adaptation of Yann Martel’s beloved novel LIFE OF PI, which is nominated for 11 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.
At Slaughter Lane you can see Ben Affleck’s universally praised, flawlessly executed political thriller ARGO. On top of winning the Golden Globe for Best Picture (Drama) and Best Director it’s nominated for seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Alan Arkin) and Best Adapted Screenplay.
So whether you missed either of these fantastic films or have been itching to see them your chance has arrived.
