… Pittsford New York for being the world’s most awesome town to live in!!!
Just kidding, but we do think if this was an award, Pittsford would surely win!! It’s Oscar weekend friends, and it’s time to find out who the Academy deems the best films of the year! There were certainly some great movies out this year; did you miss some (or all!?) of them? Never fear, you can catch any film you missed this weekend before Neil Patrick Harris takes the stage & the show begins!

Grand Budapest Hotel
The adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous hotel from the fictional Republic of Zubrowka between the first and second World Wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. (100 mins.) (via IMDB)
Since GBH came out nearly a year ago, it is a little more difficult to find. No showtimes schedules, and it appears to no longer be at Redbox. If you are determined to see this film, buying the DVD or renting it from Amazon might be your best bet.
