Multiplex 10: The Animated Short is an award-winning animated comedy centering on the lives of the movie-loving and customer-weary staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas. Kurt is an usher, pining for that special someone to share his love of horror movies. The newest hire, Jason, is a film snob who just needs a freakin’ job. Despite their differences, the pair will make fast friends — unless they kill each other first.
Multiplex 10 is also screening at film festivals and select theaters. For more information about where you can see Multiplex 10 on a big screen, check out our Screenings and Awards page.
