The cat’s out of the bag and on the screen!

The internet’s best cat videos will purr into Alamo Drafthouse this month! CatVideoFest, at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema on Feb. 23 and 24, combines some of the best kitty videos into a 70-minute feline feature film. The flick’s 115 clips of cats were personally selected by the organizer of the festival, who combs through thousands of submissions and edits them into a masterpiece of the internet’s finest fuzzy export.

“Part of the appeal of CatVideoFest is that it’s kind of homespun,” said Will Braden.

The traveling film also offers a purr-fect opportunity to help cats in need, because a portion of ticket sales from the Brooklyn screenings will go to Animal Care Centers of New York. But you should purr-chase tickets quickly — the first screening has already sold out!

Braden and his team from Seattle distribute the feline-focused film to theaters around the globe to raise money for cats, and to provide a “joyous communal experience” for people, he said.

“There are very few things nowadays that you can enjoy with your 6-year-old daughter and 60-year-old father at the same time,” Braden said. “And this event is a place for everyone.”

CatVideoFest at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema [445 Albee Square West, fourth floor, between Willoughby and Fulton streets Downtown, (718) 513–2547,]. Feb. 23 at 5:45 pm; Feb. 24 at 3:30 pm. $15.
