  1. i would like to buy 4 tickets and need to know the price of tickets for the Oscar Shorts 2/24/17.

    and bravo on your 2016-2017 as it is so exciting.

    • The Animated Shorts section should last approximately 1.5 hours and there should be an intermission between the 2 programs of approximately 30 minutes.

  2. Does the Feb. 24 showing include BOTH animated shorts AND live action shorts? I’ve seen these elsewhere in separate showings. if they’ll be shown on the same night, and you start at 7 pm, roughly when will it over? I ask because I’ll be coming from slightly over an hour away. thank you.

    • You may purchase a Ticket to either program separately or choose both Programs. The Animated Shorts will begin at 7 PM and should last approximately 1 hour, 30 minutes. There will be a 30 minute Intermission and then the Live Shorts program will begin at 9 PM.

  3. I would like to attend the documentary shorts at the Delaplaine. What time are they playing and how can I get tickets? Thanks!
