The Aristocats | Cat Power! Felines on Film
The Aristocats Sun, May 21, 2PM Dir. Wolfgang Reitherman In the heart of Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her entire estate to Duchess, her high-society cat, and her three little kittens. Laughs and adventure ensue as the greedy, bumbling butler pulls off the ultimate catnap caper. Now it's up to a rough-and-tumble alley cat and his band of swingin' jazz cats to save the day. The last feature approved by Walt Disney himself, this delightful film deserves fresh eyes, boasting superb Disney animation, spirited vocal performances, and jazzy French-inspired music.

Felines on Film May 4-Jun 4, 2017 Screening Room "There are few films that are not improved by the presence of a cat." --Anne Billson, The Telegraph Sadly, the Internet Cat Video Festival has been retired, but in its place YBCA presents a curated series of films centered around our furry, friendly, frisky, and occasionally fearsome feline friends. Drawing on a wide range of genres, from horror to Japanese animation, we'll consider the soothing and sometimes otherworldly nature of cats, who maintain their mystery even as they begrudgingly let us love them.
