Catching the Oscar winners in a theater (again)

If, after the Oscars, you'd like to see the winning films again in the theater (or for the first time), it looks like it is still possible to catch most of them here in the Capital Region:

Best Picture, Supporting Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay: 12 Years A Slave - Steve McQueen's film about the story of Solomon Northup -- a man from Saratoga Springs -- and his kidnapping into slavery and eventual return to freedom, is currently playing at the Scotia Cinema. Lupita Nyong'o also won the Oscar for best supporting actress for 12 Years a Slave. And John Ridley won for the screenplay.

And, as you probably know now, the film is based on Northup's 1853 memoir, Twelve Years a Slave. Versions of it are available on archive.org.

Best Actor and Supporting Actor: Dallas Buyers Club - The film starring Matthew McConaughey (leading actor) and Jared Leto (supporting actor) is playing at The Spectrum.

Directing (and Cinematography): Gravity - Alfonso Cuaron's space survival film is still playing in 3D at the Crossgates Regal.

Animated Feature: Frozen The Disney blockbuster is still playing at the Crossgates, Colonie Center, and Clifton Park Regals, as well as the Bow Tie Saratoga Springs. Scotia Cinema is also hosting the Frozen sing-along version on Saturday and Sunday.

Original Screenplay: Her Spike Jonze's film about operating system love is playing at The Spectrum.

Foreign Language: The Great Beauty - The Italian film is screening at The Spectrum.

Shorts - The Spectrum is still showing the Oscar-nominated live-action and animated shorts.

The only high-profile category you can't currently catch in a local theater is Blue Jasmine, for which Cate Blanchett won lead actress Oscar.

Comments

So, hey! Let's see what's showing at our hometown theater, the Bow Tie.
Oh right. None of those. In truth, nothing of any grown-up interest. Still.

(Oddly all the other Bow Ties are showing Miyazaki's "The Wind Rises". Just not Schenectady.)

I just wanted to mention that The Spectrum is bringing 12 Years A Slave back starting this Friday (3/7) thanks to its Oscar wins. So, as usual, you can see more Oscar winners and nominees at The Spectrum than any other theater in the area...

For print resolution, not-for-profit Albany-specific historic images (photos. prints, paintings and advertising) Dave's best bet would be the Albany Institute's website. They have a collections database of thousands of images to choose from, and depending on the size, reproductions can be made in a price range of $15 to $55 dollars.
