Oscar Nominated Movie "In Darkness" at Fox Tower Mar 9 - 15

From acclaimed director Agnieszka Holland, "In Darkness" is based on a true story. Leopold Socha, a sewer worker and petty thief in Lwow, a Nazi occupied city in Poland, one day encounters a group of Jews trying to escape the liquidation of the ghetto. He hides them for money in the labyrinth of the town's sewers beneath the bustling activity of the city above. What starts out as a straightforward and cynical business arrangement turns into something very unexpected, the unlikely alliance between Socha and the Jews as the enterprise seeps deeper into Socha's conscience. The film is also an extraordinary story of survival as these men, women and children all try to outwit certain death during 14 months of ever increasing and intense danger.

Rated: R, 2 hr. 25 min. 

Fox Tower: 846 Southwest Park Avenue, Portland, (503) 221-3280
