    I’m wondering how many weekends you will show the Oscar shorts? Will it be just the weekend of Jan. 31 or will you keep showing it into Feb.? Not clear on website. Thanks!

      We play films as long as they do well. If they perform well this weekend, we will hold them another week. Keep an eye on our website and newsletter.
