In theaters

Cinema Center, 437 E. Berry St., is showing the Academy Award nominated animated short films at 3 p.m. today. Cinema Center will play the live-action short film nominees Friday through Feb. 21.

Regal Entertain-ment Group, which operates the theater at Coldwater Crossing, will have its Regal Best Picture Film Festival featuring seven of the nine best picture nominees from Friday through Feb. 24. Passes, available now at the box office and on Regal's mobile app, will give access to the movies for $35. The movies in the festival are “Black Panther,” “BlacKkKlansman,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “The Favourite,” “Green Book,” “A Star is Born” and “Vice.”

After a movie awards season that seems to get longer every year, the Oscars are almost here. How many of the nominated films have you seen?

Some are still playing in local theaters – check out our Weekender section to find out where each week.

But if you're looking to squeeze in as many as possible before the Feb. 24 awards ceremony, home video and streaming services might be what you're looking for.

Many of the titles that are available on DVD and Blu-ray may be available from the Allen County Public Library, but are likely to be checked out or reserved with multiple holds at this time of year.
