No plans for Valentine's Day? Come check out the Oscar-nominated short documentary films instead. See all five movies together at the Opera Plaza.

Description from Landmark Theater's website:
Don't miss this rare opportunity to see all five Academy Award nominees in the category of Best Documentary Short! Program includes: "Kings Point" (USA), the story of five seniors living in a typical American retirement resort; "Inocente" (USA), an intensely personal and vibrant coming-of-age documentary from Sean Fine and Andrea Nix (War Dance) about a 15-year-old artist and undocumented immigrant forced to live homeless for the last nine years; "Mondays at Racine" (USA), in which every third Monday of the month in Long Island, sisters Cynthia and Rachel open up their hair salon, Racine, and offer free beauty services for women undergoing chemotherapy; "Open Heart" (USA), in which eight Rwandan children leave their families behind to embark on a life-or-death journey seeking high-risk heart surgery in Sudan; and "Redemption" (USA), which closely follows a growing army of New Yorkers whose treasures are in the trash.

The show starts at 7pm, and if people are interested in going out afterwards for drinks or food, even better. Meet me out in front of the box office at 6:45. I'll be wearing khaki pants and a navy blue sweater.
