Saturday night's films are in turn sidesplitting, heartwarming, and mind-bending. Here's some of what you'll see: A steam-powered robot who serves ice cream to orphaned android children… A samurai's life-or-death battle with the colossal, icy beast that holds Spring hostage… A wolf-like boy who grew up alone in the forest, now struggling to return to civilization… A husband and wife who've really grown apart - one lives on the floor, the other on the ceiling. Featured films include "Animation Hotline" (make your own call from our hotspot in the theatre lobby!), a new rat gang sketch from the hit series "Portlandia," and this year's charming Oscar-finalist, "Head Over Heels."
(Two intermissions. Some mature themes.)
Join us afterwards at Tony Starlight's for "New Key of the Ancient Light," an innovative performance that blends music, animation and audience-controlled gaming devices.
