Apple’s Oscar Nominated 'CODA' Returns To Theaters For Limited Run Of Free Screenings
By The Big Magazine Staff
Apple TV+ is celebrating the film "CODA" Best Picture Oscar nominations with a limited run of free screenings in select theaters. The indie film has earned three nominations at the 94th Academy Awards for best adapted screenplay (writer/director Troy Kotsur) and best actor in a supporting role (Troy Kotsur.)
A smart move on behalf of Apple TV+ to get eyes on the film for those who don’t subscribe to the platform. "CODA" was originally screened at the Sundance Festival, where Apple bought it in a record-breaking $25 million deal.
Later it had a short theatrical run ahead of streaming. That run was notable for being believed to be the first film to be screened with burnt-in subtitles.
Major cities across the US - plus London in the UK - will get free screenings in select theaters over the coming weekend. One special screening will take place in Los Angeles featuring a live Q&A with the director and cast members.
Details of participating theaters and cinemas have not been announced, according to Deadline, the plan is for three screenings per day, with all seats as first come, first served.
