Cinema Capitol will present the 2021 OSCAR NOMINATED SHORT FILMS on select days through Monday, April 19.
Oscars were first presented for short films beginning in 1931. Since then, it has become increasingly rare for short films to be shown in theaters. However, programs like the OSCAR NOMINATED SHORT FILMS, which is distributed by the company Shorts TV, provide visibility for this often overlooked category.
“We take a lot of pride in showing a good variety of movies which are nominated for Oscars every year,” explains Julie Whittemore, Assistant Director of the Capitol. “A lot of our patrons are excited about seeing as many as possible. They make a point of coming to see all three categories. They can easily make a day of it; come for a matinee, grab some dinner, and come back for an evening show. That way they can cross two categories off of their lists.
Short films will be presented in three different programs: Live Action, Animation, and Documentary. There will be multiple show times for each program.
Run times for each program are:
Live Action: 130 minutes
Animated: 99 minutes
Documentary: 136 minutes
Show times for all programs are as follows:
Friday, April 9: Live Action 4:00, Animation 7:00
Saturday, April 10: Documentary 4:00, Animation7:00
Sunday, April 11: Documentary 1:00, Live Action 4:00
