Win free passes to the 2010 AMC Best Picture Showcase.

We know our readers are huge movie-obsessed fans, and we’re excited to announce the biggest giveaway Scene-Stealers has ever hosted!

This year, AMC Theatres is expanding its all-day AMC Best Picture Showcase to accommodate all 10 of this year’s Best Picture nominees.

To mark this monumental two-day event, happening this Saturday Feb. 27 and next Saturday March 6, AMC has provided Scene-Stealers with four pairs of passes to each AMC Best Picture Showcase at your nearest AMC Theatre!

All you have to do to win is fill out the form below. If picked randomly as a winner, you will be asked to choose three AMC Theatres from this list as your preference for attending.

There will be four separate winners picked for each week. Winners for week one will be chosen Thursday Feb. 25. Winners for week two will be chosen Thursday March 4.

This is a huge opportunity for any serious movie fan–each pair of passes are valued at $120 if purchased online, while seeing all of the Best Picture nominees separately would total around $250!

Here’s what the entire AMC Best Picture Showcase entails:

The two-day events start at 10:30AM, with doors opening at the theatre at 9AM. Theatres have different schedules. Check here for theatres and showtimes.

Feb. 27 looks like this:

10:30AM: “Avatar”
1:45PM: “Up” or “Up in the Air”
3:45PM: “A Serious Man” or 4:00PM: “Precious”
6:30PM: “Precious” or  6:45PM: “The Blind Side”
8:45PM: “District 9″ or 9:15PM: “Inglourious Basterds”

March 6 looks like this:

Does the Studio 30 have wi-fi? I know I’d be forced to sit through something like The Blind Side or Avatar.

By the way, that was not meant as a slight to those who liked Avatar, many to most thoughtful people I know seem to like it. I just didn’t. I’m kind of a curmudgeon and joyless snob when it comes to movies.

Now, for the part where I render my last statement entirely hypocritical:

Mr. High-and-Mighty Master Control (Eric)–I would so totally love for you to do even a short article on the impending Tron sequel due out later this year. Your knowledge on the original is, I’m sure, vast and nerdy (like mine). The degree to which I’m looking forward to seeing it is kind of pathetic.

End of line.

Just a quick note-the schedule is not the same at all theaters, as some prints had to be switched last minute.Check the AMC site for the schedule at your theater. Can’t wait for this weekend, we’re psyched!:)
