Missed the boat seeing "Captain Phillips"? Failed to take stock of "The Wolf of Wall Street"? Now's your chance to see both movies -- along with this year's seven other best picture nominees -- before the Oscars take place on March 2.

AMC theaters will again host the Best Picture Showcase, a pair of daylong marathons of contenders for Oscars' top prize -- Saturday and March 1 at Loews Raceway 10 in Westbury and Loews 17 in Stony Brook. You may want to opt for the bucket-size popcorn before settling in for roughly 11 hours while watching Saturday's lineup of "Philomena" at noon, "Dallas Buyers Club" at 2 p.m., "The Wolf of Wall Street" at 4:15 p.m. and "12 Years a Slave" at 8:15 p.m.

It will already be Oscar Sunday when the last movie wraps in the March 1 slate. "Nebraska" kicks it off at noon, followed by "Captain Phillips" at 2:15 p.m., "Her" at 4:45 p.m., "American Hustle" at 7:55 p.m. and "Gravity" at 10:30 p.m.

Tickets are $30 for Saturday, $40 for March 1 and $60 for both days. For more information, go to amctheaters.com.
