We will be attending the 4:25 showing of the 2013 Oscar Nominated Short Films: Live Action at the Harvard Exit Theater. Here is a description of this program copied from Landmark Theatres's web site:
"Don't miss this rare opportunity to see all five Academy Award nominees in the category of Best Live Action Short! This year's program will be hosted by last year's winner: Luke Matheny, writer/director of "God of Love." Program includes: "Asad" (South Africa/USA), a coming-of-age fable of a Somali boy who is faced with either falling into a life of piracy, or choosing the path of an honest fisherman; "Buzkashi Boys" (Afghanistan/USA), the story of two best friends—a street urchin and a blacksmith's son—who struggle to realize their dreams as they make their way to manhood in war-torn Kabul; "Curfew" (USA), in which Richie, at the lowest point of his life, gets a call from his estranged sister, asking him to look after his nine-year old niece Sophia for the evening; "Death of a Shadow" (Belgium/France), in which a strange collector imprisons the shadow of Nathan (Matthias Schoenaerts, Rust and Bone), a soldier who died during World War I, and gives him a second life against 10,000 captured shadows; and "Henry" (Canada), in which Henry, a great concert pianist, has his life thrown in turmoil the day the love of this life, Maria, disappears mysteriously."

Meet me in the lobby (i.e., room with the piano) of the Harvard Exit at 4:00. I am an Asian male who wears glasses and who will probably be wearing a hat of some type (beret, black rain hat....). A head shot of me appears in the photo section of my profile to assist you in identifying for whom to look.
The program will be shown in the first floor screening room which is ADA accessible.
There will be an optional food and beverage stop at the conclusion of the program (i.e., after all of the credits have rolled by). Meet me in the lobby where we will regroup and decide which establishment to patronize.
If you interested in having a light snack before the performance meet me at 3:00 pm in the DeLuxe Grill which is just up the block (one store front) from the Harvard Exit. They have a happy hour menu from 3:00 to 6:00. Here is the menu
