This will be the 13th year that Shorts HD and Magnolia Pictures will offer the experience, which features all 15 live action, animation and documentary shorts that are nominated for Oscars.
The Oscar-nominated live action shorts and documentary shorts will come to Salem Cinema soon, but here is a look at the five animated shorts that will be showing starting Friday:

"Garden Party": Frogs and toads take shelter in a luxurious villa and stumble upon the owner in this French short directed by Victor Caire and Gabriel Grapperon.
"Lou": Directed by Dave Mullins and Dana Murray, this short tells the story of Lou, who teaches a bully that giving is more rewarding than taking. 
"Negative Space": A father, who is often away on business, connects with his son by teaching him how to pack a suitcase, directed by Max Porter and Ru Kuwahata. 
"Revolting Rhymes": Directed by Jan Lachauer and Jakob Schuh, the big, bad wolf tells his side of the story, which includes his adventures as well as Snow White, Cinderella and Jack, based on rhymes by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Sir Quentin Blake.
