Netflix to release 3 Oscar contenders in theaters before streaming

In a major pivot, Netflix Inc. will release three highly anticipated upcoming films in theaters before they become available to its streaming viewers.

The streaming giant said late Wednesday in a tweet that Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma,” the Coen Brothers’ “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” and “Bird Box” from Susanne Bier would get limited theater runs in New York, Los Angeles and a handful of other major cities.

And for those who aren’t yet ready to wear pajamas as outerwear, you’ll be able to catch these beauties on Netflix too: ROMA (December 14), The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (November 16), and Bird Box (December 21).
