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.

Naming Number Two
DIRECTOR: TOA FRASER
NEW ZEALAND
This Sundance Film Festival Audience Award–Winner about a Fijian–Kiwi matriarch who gathers her clan for a traditional pig roast where she will anoint her successor is full of big–hearted charm. Keenly aware of her mortality, Nana Maria (Ruby Dee) decides at alarmingly short notice to hold a ritual celebration in her Auckland backyard and demands all her grandchildren (though not her "useless" grown children) gather at short notice. Simmering resentments and problems come to the boil during the day (who will kill the pig?) but eventually settle down to leave everyone in a mellow mood. Written and directed by Toa Fraser based on his own play, the film has an unpretentious, low–key warmth and sense of humor about family dynamics that is hard to resist. ( 94 min )

Eagle vs Shark
DIRECTOR: TAIKA WAITITI
NEW ZEALAND
"Which is the more dangerous predator: an eagle or a shark? That's a trick question. Don't try to answer it. You'll have your own opinion by the end of Taika Waititi's deliciously tangy, deadpan feature debut about two colorful misfits thrown into each other's orbit. Lily is one of those weird, sweet–natured girls with stringy hair who is quite lovely and charismatic under a surface of shy awkwardness. She cashiers at a fast–food joint and pines for Jarrod, the self–aggrandizing, clueless geek from the computer store across the way. Fiercely optimistic, Lily crashes Jarrod's animal/video–game extravaganza, impressing him enough with her shark suit and gaming prowess to score a hookup with Eagle Lord (Jarrod) himself. But Jarrod's self–absorption might drive even the most adoring of girlfriends away. With so much subtlety and precision in Loren Horsley and Jemaine Clement's straight–faced, oddball performances, Lily and Jarrod's attempts to reach each other are hilarious and excruciatingly real."—Sundance Film Festival. ( 87 min )
