Rangos Giant Cinema at Carnegie Science Center
February 16 – 22
Various times

Still trying to catch all of the top flicks before the 90th Academy Awards on March 4? Don’t miss this cool chance to experience the 2018 Oscar-nominated short films from the animated and live-action categories at Pittsburgh’s most technically advanced theater.

Vying for that glistening gold-plated figurine, this year’s nominees explore a variety of topics, techniques and genres — from the story of Emmett Till and a Roald Dahl fairy tale to current events in Kenya.

Follow amphibians into an abandoned house, watch a social worker teach a deaf girl to communicate, experience Kobe Bryant’s love letter to basketball and more.

The cinematic excitement, crystal clear images and brilliant colors will pop via The Rangos’ 70-by-38-foot Certified Giant Screen, 45-speaker Dolby Atmos surround sound system and 4K laser digital projectors.

The PG-rated animated shorts are: “Dear Basketball,” “Garden Party,” “Lou,” “Negative Space” and “Revolting Rhymes.” The R-rated live-action shorts are: “DeKalb Elementary,” “My Nephew Emmett,” “The Eleven O’Clock,” “The Silent Child” and “Watu Wote (All Of Us).”
