A delightful and atmospheric French animation about a cat that leads a double life. Directed by Oscar nominated Jean-Loup Felicioli. A Cat in Paris will appeal to children of all ages.

Dino is a cat that leads a double life. By day, he lives with Zoe, and her mother, Jeanne, who is a police officer. By night, he works with Nico, a burglar with a big heart. Zoe is withdrawn and mute since the murder of her father at the hands of gangsters but late one evening she decides to follow Dino. When Zoe follows Dino out the bedroom window, the different worlds of cops and criminals, cats and children all come together on the precipitous parapets of Notre Dame.

Refreshments will be available before the performance and during the interval.

"An attractive tale: a childlike fable of a little girl and her preternaturally intelligent cat that swiftly devolves into a very old-school cops and robbers yarn. "
Andrew Pulver, The Guardian
