GRRRRRR! The Cleveland Cinemas seem determined for me to not have a successful movie. The just moved the Short's opening date to Feb 17th. I have commitments for the 17th and 18th, and Sunday we are see Melancholia, so I am moving this to Tuesday the 21st at 7:00 PM. We will meet in the lobby at 6:50. Note we will be seeing only the Live Action Shorts on this day.
I will be at Happy Dog at 6:00 PM to get a Chili Dog, before the movie. If anyone else would like to join me they are at 5810 Detroit. They is not much parking around there so I suggest you park at the free lot between W63rd and W64th.
After the shorts we will go over to XYZ the Tavern for drinks if anyone wants.
I saw both the Live action and animated shorts last year, and loved them all. I think it would be well worth everyone’s time to see at least one of the shorts programs.
Anyway on the shorts.

Pentecost 8.9 Stars on IMDB
Ireland 1977. Eleven-year-old Damian Lynch (SCOTT GRAHAM) is called in at the last moment to serve as an altar boy at an important mass in his local parish. Following his last appearance as an altar boy when he knocked Father O'Toole off the altar, Damien is serving a 3 month ban from his only passion in life...football. To make matters worse, Damian's team, Liverpool FC, are playing in their first European cup final in two weeks time. Damien's father (MICHAEL MCELHATTON) offers him a reprieve and crucially a chance to see the European cup final if he serves the mass correctly. Damien now faces a choice: either conform to the status quo or never watch his beloved Liverpool play again...
