This Sunday, March 12th, the Academy Awards returns with a busy list of nominated movies ranging from Top Gun to Puss in Boots. (In Seattle? There’s a free viewing party at Clock-Out Lounge.)

If you haven’t seen the Oscar-nominated films, watch some at theaters around the city. Ark Lodge Cinemas is running Everything Everywhere All At Once this Wednesday, multiple theaters are still showing Avatar, and you can catch the Oscar-nominated shorts at SIFF and others. Some Oscar noms are streaming, but if you, like Nicole Kidman, love the experience of the theater, go see them where, “somehow, heartbreak feels good in a place like this.”

Here’s a big list of cinemas screening Oscar-nominated films around Seattle before the 2023 Oscars. Click the links to find more details about showtimes. Some movie theaters only screen these films during the middle of the week—so jump on it!
