Make your picks and see the winners announced when the Oscars are awarded on February 26th. If past years are any measure of demand, advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended!

Academy Award Nominated Documentary Shorts
Academy Award Nominated Documentary Shorts 02/25/17 To 03/04/17
Were delighted to present again this year a program of all of this years Academy Award nominated short documentary films (in addition to the short live-action and animated films, which are playing separately). Feature-length documentaries have for the past several years enjoyed a higher profile than ever among moviegoers, but just as with the live-action and animated short film categories, short documentaries which are generally no less extraordinary than the years celebrated feature-length docs have been far more difficult to find than features, especially in theatres. (Approximately three hours)
