The 87th Academy Awards nominations will be announced January 15th but Oscar completionists can get a head start on the Documentary Features category thanks to the Academy’s 15-film shortlist and Laemmle Theaters.
The Academy’s Documentary Branch narrowed the field to 15 from 134 submissions. While we’ve already screened many films, some are still in theaters, and five will play as morning shows over the next few weeks. By the time nominations are announced, every film on the shortlist will have played at one or more of our theaters… for those keeping track!
Weekend morning shows in Claremont, North Hollywood, Pasadena, and West LA:
Still in theaters:
CITIZENFOUR in Pasadena. Coming 12/19 to North Hollywood.
JODOROWSKY’S DUNE returns on 12/12 to Beverly Hills.
