Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Feb 21st at 1:00 for Oscar Nominated (Animated) Short Films 2010 at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Schmitty wearing clothes and standing next to his lovely pregnant wife in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Note: You may want to purchase tickets in advance.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see all five Academy Award nominees in the category of Best Animated Short and more! Program includes: French Roast (France), in which an uptight businessman in a fancy Parisian cafÃ© who is about to pay his check finds out that he has lost his wallet; Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty (Ireland), in which a grandmother loses the plot as she tells her version of “Sleeping Beauty” to her terrified granddaughter; The Lady and the Reaper (Spain), in which a sweet old lady who is waiting for death so she can see her beloved husband once again is invited to enter death’s domainÂ—if someone doesn’t ruin it for her; Logorama (Argentina), featuring spectacular car chases, an intense hostage crisis, and wild animals rampaging through the city; and A Matter of Loaf and Death (UK), the latest adventure from Nick Park, in which Wallace & Gromit start a new bread baking business. Although business is booming, Gromit is concerned by the news that a dozen local bakers have ‘disappeared’ this year, so he turns sleuth to protect his master and solve the escalating murder mystery. Program also features three bonus shorts: Pixar’s Partly Cloudy (USA), Poland’s The Kinematograph and Canada’s Runaway.
