Starting this Friday, Landmark Theaters will show the 2010 Oscar-nominated short films at Opera Plaza Cinema (Civic Center) and the Lumiere Theater (Russian Hill). Live shorts in the program include Instead of Abracadabra, about a magician far too old to still be living at home, and The New Tenants with Vincent D'Onofrio, about neighbors from hell. The animated shorts feature the latest Wallace & Gromit installment, A Matter of Loaf and Death. The special engagement ends next Thursday, 2/26.
