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.

Cinema, Aspirin and Vultures
DIRECTOR: MARCELO GOMES
BRAZIL
In 1942, in the middle of Northeastern Brazil, two very different men meet along the road: Johann, an aspirin salesman avoiding the German draft, and Ranulpho, a rural Brazilian seeking escape from the drought. Johann's job is to visit isolated communities, setting up screens to show aspirin commercials—the locals' only chance to see anything approaching the magic of cinema. Although their personalities and lives are worlds apart, the two men develop a deep friendship, as Johann, in an effort to provide Ranulpho with job skills, teaches Ranulpho to run the film projector and drive the truck. In this evocative road movie, Gomes reminds us that war is as close as Johann's radio, broadcasting its relentless warnings that all lives are changed when the world is in conflict. This year's Brazilian submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. ( 99 min )


First Feature Film.
