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.

Retrieval
DIRECTOR: SLAWOMIR FABICKI
POLAND
In his fight to support the woman in his life and her child, 19–year–old Wojtek is forced to inhabit a world of evil that includes illegal boxing matches, small–time gangsters and debt retrieval. Those seem to be the best options in the grimness of provincial Poland, a land with plenty of heart, but a world where it's hard to see a future when all that surrounds you are coal mines and mean, poverty–ridden streets. When a co–worker at the cement factory is injured on the job, Wojtek starts to look around at his options. Handy with his fists, amateur boxing leads to a job working as a nightclub bouncer, a short drive from beating up tardy debtors. Soon the money is rolling in, but it's not a lifestyle that can keep a girl. At the heart of it, Retrieval is a psychological story that smartly charts out a decent man's attempt to do the right thing when the choices mean doing the wrong thing. This year's Polish submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. ( 103 min )


First Feature Film.
