A perennial hit with audiences around the country (and now the world), don’t miss this year’s selection of shorts. The Academy Awards take place Sunday, Feb. 26th.

ANIMATED SHORTS (Running Time: 87 minutes)

Piper

The Head Vanishes (additional film)

Pear Cider and Cigarettes

Important note: PEAR CIDER AND CIGARETTES, one of the five nominees, will be the last film in the program. An inventively animated first-person narration about a troubled friendship, there’s violence, language, sex, and drug use in it, and it’s not appropriate for children. We’ll have a warning card come up prior to this short, so that parents and caregivers can usher children out of the theater if they’d like.
