In snub of Netflix, AMC and Regal cinemas won't show 'Roma' as part of Oscars showcases

In snub of Netflix, AMC and Regal cinemas won't show 'Roma' as part of Oscars showcases Two of the largest cinema chains in the U.S. won't show Netflix's "Roma" as part of their annual best-picture Oscars showcases, in a further sign that chilly relations haven't thawed between major exhibitors and the streaming entertainment company. Neither AMC Theatres nor Regal has exhibited "Roma" prior to Tuesday's announcement of the Academy Award nominations. The theater chains have cited Netflix's windowing strategy for the movie, which involved a three-week limited theatrical run prior to its streaming debut. "Roma" received 10 Academy Award nominations, including a nod for best picture.
