Best Picture nominees Lion (March 15 at 7 p.m.) and Hidden Figures (March 18 at 8 p.m.) will show at Reg Lenna Center for The Arts.

Lion

Adapted from the non-fiction book A Long Way Home by Saroo Brierley, Lion is about a five-year-old Indian boy who, after a wrong train takes him thousands of miles away from home and family, survives many challenges before being adopted by an Australian couple. Twenty-five years later, armed with only the scantest of clues, he learns of a new technology called Google Earth, and sets out to find his lost family. Lion stars Best Supporting Actor nominee Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) and Best Supporting Actress nominee Nicole Kidman (The Hours). Lion is rated PG and is 120 minutes long.

Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Best Supporting Actress nominee Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. Hidden Figures is rated PG and is 127 minutes long.
