Who Else Hates How Great Movies Come to Tri-Cities Late?

Jani Bryson

One of the downsides of living in Tri-Cities is trying to see a great film in a movie theater. So many of the films tabbed to be Academy Award nominees just don’t get booked here while three or four screens are dedicated to Despicable Me 3 in 3-D.

Are we really that backward? We care enough about cheap-thrill sequels to give them them multiple screens when award-winning movies are showing in other cities?

Recent examples:

  • 12 Years a Slave — didn’t come to Tri-Cities until it was nominated for an Oscar.
  • Dallas Buyer’s Club — only here for a week, then they brought it back after it got nominations.
  • Amour (French film)
  • The Artist — didn’t come until after it won the award
  • Nebraska — only here for two weeks
