Tampa, Florida -- Movie lovers will get the chance to watch 10 Oscar-nominated films they normally wouldn't get to see: all of the shorts nominated in this year's Academy Awards.
The Tampa Theatre will be showing all of the films -- both animated and live action -- from Friday, Feb. 14 through Saturday, March 1. (On week days, the live and animated films will show on alternating nights in two-hour blocks. On weekends, both categories will screen back to back.)
The animated shorts include a new cartoon called "Get a Horse" from Walt Disney Animation Studios. It is a contemporary homage to the first animated shorts featuring Mickey Mouse, with all-new, black-and-white, hand-drawn animation paired with full-color, 3D, CG filmmaking -- in the same frame.
Among the live-action shorts is a film called "The Voorman Problem", starring Martin Freeman (of "The Hobbit" franchise) as a doctor examining a prisoner named Mr. Voorman, who believes he is a god.
Tickets for either the animated or live-action shorts programs are $11 for adults and $9 for Tampa Theatre members.
