You Can See Oscar-Nominated Short Films

Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty Once upon a time moviegoers always got a short film before the main feature. Theater owners soon figured out that they could have more showtimes and make more money without them. It’s a pity because they can be wonderful. So it’s really great that the Cable Car Cinema is running a mini-festival of sorts so people can see the five live action and five animated films in two-hour bundles. This special package, produced by Shorts International, is running in theaters across the country and these Oscar categories can actually mean something to viewers again. Michael Janusonis in the ProJo says it’s a strong field — it even includes a ‘Wallace and Gromit’. Starts tonight, Friday, at 6:45pm with the Live Action group, with more showings scheduled of both groups through Wednesday the 24th. (Trailers)
