2010 | 70 min | French with English subtitles (see below for details)
A Cat in Paris is a beautiful and thrilling animated film set on the moonlit rooftops of Paris.
Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Film, A Cat in Paris combines stunning hand-drawn and richly colored animation, a jazzy soundtrack, and action-packed adventure to create a wonderfully charming film for children and adults alike.
Dino the cat leads a double life. By day he lives with Zoe, a mute girl whose mother, Jeanne, is a detective in the Parisian police force. At night Dino teams up with Nico, an agile “cat” burglar who evades capture by fluidly leaping from rooftop to rooftop across the Paris skyline. Curious about where her beloved cat goes after the sun sets, Zoe decides to follows Dino on one of his nightly escapades. A surprising series of events leads to Zoe being captured by the gangster who killed her father. Can Nico and Dino find a way to use their feline skills to save her?

To enhance our young viewers’ appreciation of foreign-language movies, we have readers read subtitles aloud. We play the readings through individual headsets, to allow those who do not require the service to experience the film without hearing the reader. We have a limited number of headsets, and offer them on a first-come, first-served basis to young people only.
