I'm attempting to see every Oscar nominated movie before this year's winners are revealed Feb. 27. Luckily, most of the Best Picture nominated films are either playing at Carmike or are available on DVD or Netflix. The only obstacle is finding the time to actually sit down and watch the 10 films.
The often-difficult-to-find short films nominated in live action and animated categories are even proving easy to track down this year. Atlanta's Midtown Art Cinema is showing all 10 films for a week starting Feb. 11. The short films are divided into two sessions. One features the five live action films and the other features the five animated films.
The Midtown Art Cinema is located close to Piedmont Park in Atlanta. The theater is not as modern as our Carmike 15 or Ritz 13 but I love it. I love the not-too-loud sound system, the old-school seating and the concessions. The Midtown cinema serves beer and wine along with popcorn and candy. Wine and a movie? Yes, please!
These are the nominations for Animated Short Film: "Day and Night," "The Gruffalo," "Let's Pollute," "The Lost Thing," "Madagascar, carnet de voyage (Madagascar, a Journey Diary)."
These are the nominations for Live Action Short Film: "The Confession," "The Crush," "God of Love," "Na Wewe," "Wish 143."
