The Academy Award® nominated A Cat in Paris from directors Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol is a beautifully hand-drawn caper set in the shadow-drenched alleyways of Paris.

Dino is a cat that leads a double life. By day he lives with Zoe, a little girl whose mother is a detective in the Parisian police force. But at night Dino sneaks out the window to work with Nico – a slinky cat burglar with a big heart, whose fluid movements are poetry in motion as he evades captors and slips and swishes from rooftop to rooftop across the Paris skyline. Rife with film references (from Reservoir Dogs to Goodfellas to The Night of the Hunter), A Cat in Paris is a warm and richly humorous love letter to classic noir and American gangster films, with jazz soundtrack featuring Billie Holiday.

Nominated: 2012 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature

Can nine-year-old Olivia and a rambunctious sheepdog save a colony of rare penguins? Find out in this heartwarming film based on a true story.

Off the coast of the small Australian town of Warrnambool lies Middle Island, a sanctuary home to a colony of fairy penguins—the world’s smallest. Due to fox attacks, there are very few penguins left on the island. If the number dwindles to less than 10, Olivia’s mother, Emily, a park ranger, will lose her job, which means Olivia will have to move away from Australia to America!

With the help of her eccentric grandfather, Swampy, Olivia comes up with a plan to train Oddball, a troublemaking sheepdog, to protect the penguins from the foxes. But with the town council wanting to turn the sanctuary into an amusement park and the dogcatcher eager to put Oddball in the pound, can Olivia train the dog to save the penguins before it’s too late?

Featuring beautiful coastal landscapes, a lovable sheepdog, and the cutest penguins, this wonderfully acted film is a treat for the whole family.
