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.

Madeinusa
DIRECTOR: CLAUDIA LLOSA
PERU
Madeinusa (pronounced Ma–den–OO–za)—and yes, there's a reason for that name—is a 14–year–old girl, the favorite of her father, the corrupt mayor of a dismal Peruvian mountain town. Abandoned by her mother, loathed by her sister Chale and dirt poor, Madeinusa's life seems to be predictably destined until the arrival of Salvador, a geologist en route from Lima to a mining settlement nearby. Stranded in the village due to the arrival of a strange Christian/Pagan religious holiday, he strikes up a friendship with the girl and, in so doing, radically alters the trajectory of both their lives. "Llosa's debut feature is a precocious wonder—a slice of cinematic magic realism worthy of the tradition of García Márquez. Magnificently shot, imbued with a discreet sense of magic and mystery, and packed with arresting imagery that recalls master surrealist Luis Buñuel, it signals the arrival of a considerable talent."—San Sebastián Film Festival. This year's Peruvian submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. ( 100 min )


First Feature Film.
