There are certain aspects of movies that I just love. One of them is seeing all of the Oscar-nominated shorts, and animation shorts. So it made me really happy to read the weekly newsletter for Cinema Salem this week, and I just had to share it with you. I hope to see you there. Juli ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Dear Juli,
We've got a special event screening at CinemaSalem this evening of a new documentary called Someone You Love: The HPV Epidemic. Presented by The Yellow Umbrella and narrated by Vanessa Williams, this film sheds light on the risks, myths, and hard truths of this widespread epidemic. Our guest speaker tonight is Christine Baze, founder of The Yellow Umbrella Organization. (Don't forget to sing "Happy Birthday" to her!) This important and informative event starts at 8 pm.
This Saturday night at the Cabot in Beverly brings 4EverFab, the region's best Beatles Tribute band. Their concert starts at 7:30 pm.
And don't forget that there's just a little over a month before Salem Film Fest, presenting the world's best documentary films from the past year. That awesome and transformative festival starts on March 5.
And now, here's the rest of CinemaSalem's showtimes!
Starting Friday: 2015 Oscar-Nominated Animation Shorts and Live Action Shorts (NR); The Imitation Game (PG13); Paddington (PG): Selma (PG13); The Spirit of Salem (NR); This Perfect Place: A Natural History of the Massachusetts North Shore (NR); and The True 1692 in 3D.
A huge attraction every year is our presentation of all the nominations for the Animated and Live Action Shorts Academy Awards. These categories always present work that's a little more adventurous than the feature nominations, and offer a glimpse of new filmmakers making their mark.
The Animation Shorts will screen on Friday at (5:00) and 9:35; Saturday and Sunday at (12:30) and (5:00); Monday at (5:00 PM); Tuesday at 7:15; Wednesday at (5:00 PM); and Thursday at 7:15.
The Live Action Shorts will screen on Friday at 7:15; Saturday and Sunday at (2:45) and 7:15; Monday at 7:15; Tuesday at (4:30); Wednesday at 7:15; and Thursday at (4:30).
If you're looking for the Oscar-Nominated Documentary Shorts, they will be playing at the Cabot next weekend, February 6-8, screen that Friday at 4:30 and 7:30; Saturday at 1:00; 4:30, and 7:30; and Sunday at 3:00 pm. Don't forget: that's next weekend, not this one!
