Watch the best short films of 2020 and get an edge in your Oscar pool all while supporting your fav local theater (aka us).

We’ve got a long-running tradition of showing short Oscar films every year in our theater, but since we’re closed this spring, we’ll be showing them via virtual cinema — so you can watch Oscar-nominated animated, live-action, and documentary shorts at home.



Available to watch at home April 9-22. Ticket sales help support our theater while we’re closed.


Narratives from the 2020 live action nominated short films take you to all corners of the world —from a corrections officer sifting through the letters of an inmate on death row to a man just trying to get his stolen bicycle back. Beautifully shot stories and creative storytelling helped these five short films ascend to the top of the film world.


Watch impactful and beautifully animated shorts from heavy hitters like Disney Pixar as well as up and coming filmmakers in the 2020 animated Oscar-nominated shorts. The 94 minute compilation includes the five Oscar nominees as well as a few selections from the short list of eligible films.


The 2020 batch of Oscar-nominated short documentaries gives names and faces to major global issues. Learn about famine in Yemen, Hong Kong protestors, the last surviving member of the French Resistance, and more in five powerful short documentaries deemed the best of the year.
