November 14, 2013Tweet
A Cat in Paris (Jean-Loup Felicioli, Alain Gagnol, 2010, France/Netherlands/Switzerland, Belgium, 70 min.) will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, and again at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17, as a special children’s feature. A cat has many lives…as Zoe, a silent little girl traumatized by her father’s loss finds out. By day Dino is her beloved pet, but at night, he stalks the rooftops of Paris helping Nico, a daring jewel robber. How Dino and Nico help Zoe’s mother bring about justice is only one of the pleasures of this magical film in hand-drawn, old-school animation. “Complete with a climactic Hitchcockian set piece on the rooftops of Notre Dame…the romantic backdrops tip the hat to film noir…in a storybook Paris of the imagination.” (Seattle Weekly, Seattle Times, San Francisco Bay Guardian) (Nominated Best Animated Film: Oscar, César, European Film Awards 2012.) Admission is $4. For more information, call 777-4998.
