Oscars: “Puss In Boots” coming back to theaters for charity – AWARDS ALLEY
By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: One of the fiercest races being fought in the run-up heading to the Academy Awards appears to be in the Best Animated Feature category. Several experts say Gore Verbinski’s “Rango” sits in the catbird seat, but the rest of the nominees – with the absence of a powerhouse Pixar film – legitimately feel like they have a shot.
As a result, the studios behind this year’s Oscar nominees are doing what they can to keep those films on people’s radars. Paramount trotted out a behind-the-scenes featurette on “Rango” the other day. And now AMC Theatres announces that its Replay for Charity program benefiting the Will Rogers Institute is bringing “Puss In Boots” back to theaters for a limited time.
Academy Award Nominee for Best Animated Feature, “Puss” will screen for two days at select AMC Theatres on Sunday, Feb. 19 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Monday, Feb. 20 at noon.
Moviegoers will receive a special ticket price of only $5 with proceeds going to the Will Rogers Institute. Guests will also receive a collectible “Puss In Boots” movie art print with a $5 off coupon towards the purchase of the DVD or Blu-ray available Feb. 24 (while supplies last).
