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.

Ahlaam
DIRECTOR: MOHAMED AL–DARADJI
IRAQ
Filmed in Baghdad in the aftermath of the U.S. "shock and awe" invasion, its cast and crew subject to kidnappings from both sides, Ahlaam may be the first feature film from post–Saddam Iraq. The war–ravaged city, with its street battles and wrecked buildings, provides an astonishing immediacy to this story about a young woman, Ahlaam, confined to an asylum after seeing her husband kidnapped by Saddam's thugs on their wedding day. Her hospital destroyed in the U.S. bombardment, Ahlaam wanders the streets on what becomes an increasingly nightmarish, hallucinatory odyssey. Meanwhile, her relatives, aided by an idealistic young doctor, search frantically for her amid the chaos. Al–Daradji, who fled to Holland in 1995, but found himself drawn irresistibly back to his homeland after the fall of Saddam, has fashioned a moving, haunting film. ( 110 min )


First Feature Film.
