THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

Days of Glory
DIRECTOR: RACHID BOUCHAREB
ALGERIA
Honored at the Cannes Film Festival this year with the Chalais Prize as a film that "best reflects the reality of our world," and the Best Actor (ensemble) award, Days of Glory (Indigènes) is an emotionally compelling and visually striking war story. In World War II, 150,000 "indigenous" men from the former colonies of Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia, called "indigenous," served as French infantrymen, fighting the Nazis to protect a country most had never visited and countrymen whose notions of liberté, egalité and fraternité did not extend to their North African brothers. The story focuses on five soldiers whose battalion fights its way through Europe winning battles as they come to terms with individual tests of allegiance. Bouchareb's powerful film provoked widespread debate in France about race, ethnicity and class, finally helping rally support for raising the pensions of 80,000 soldiers and widows and securing full and equal benefits for the courageous soldiers serving France, regardless of birthplace. This year's Algerian submission for the Best Foreign Film Oscar. ( 128 min )


Filmography: Bâton rouge (85), Cheb (91), Dust of Life (95), Little Senegal (01).
