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.

Hula Girls
DIRECTOR: LEE SANG–IL
JAPAN
It is 1965 and Japan's industry has started to shift from coal to oil. One by one the old mining towns begin their long slow decline. But in one small town way up north, leaders and mining company officials have come up with plan B: to develop Japan's first Hawaiian Village and become a tourist mecca. And what's a Hawaiian Village without a troupe of hula dancers? The only problem is, no one knows how to do the dance, or even knows what hula is! In this touching comedy, the skepticism and conservatism of the locals is gradually overcome as their daughters fall under the spell of one talented and determined dance instructor from Tokyo. Based on a true story, Hula Girls is a heartwarming comedy about coal miners' daughters who take a once–in–a–lifetime chance to escape their monotonous lives and save their town. This year's Japanese submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. ( 108 min )


Filmography: Border Line (02), 69 (04), Scrap Heaven (05).
