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.

Rang De Basanti
DIRECTOR: RAKEYSH OMPRAKASH MEHRA
INDIA
Colorful, vibrant, and replete with romance, tragedy, history, and social commentary, this "Bollywood gone hip–hop" was a blockbuster in India and is this year's submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. The title means "Bringing out the Color (of Patriotism)." The plot centers on the beautiful English granddaughter of a colonialist, who reads her grandfather's diaries and decides to make a documentary about the heroic but tragically short lives of the freedom fighters at the time of the British Raj. She recruits five Delhi college students to act the roles of their forebears, but they, as part of a contemporary consumerist, self–involved, and disenchanted generation are at first dismissive of the idealism and self–sacrificial courage of the men of the past. They would rather party than be patriots. But a critical incident brings them out of their cynical fog and they come to realize that modern corrupt leaders are as oppressive as the foreign colonialists of the past and that the past and present are connected. ( 157 min )
