“2014 Oscar Nominated Animation Shorts” Program runs 1 hour 50 minutes and is Unrated, however, our guess is that it should be rated PG-13 on the conservative side.

Friday to Thursday @ 2pm & 4:30
“2014 Oscar Nominated Live Action Shorts” Program runs 1 hour 48 minutes and is Unrated, but we’d give it an R rating as a whole program.

(Do I Have To Take Care Of Everything?)”; “The Voorman Problem”.  Distributed by Magnolia Films.
