The 2019 CatVideoFest will screen March 10-21 at Row House Cinema in Lawrenceville.

Row House Cinema will continue its tradition of putting adorable and hilarious cats on the big screen by hosting the 2019 CatVideoFest.

The 70-minute cute kitty compilation will run March 10-21 in the theater at 4115 Butler St., Lawrenceville.

A portion of proceeds from 70-minute program will go to local nonprofits.

CatVideoFest is a national compilation reel of the latest and best cat videos culled from unique submissions and sourced animations, music videos and classic internet videos. The reel is appropriate for all ages.

Row House Cinema previously hosted its own Pittsburgh Pretty Kitties festival, a compilation of local cat videos, in 2017.

“We’ve done our own local cat festival, Pittsburgh Pretty Kitties, so this is a natural fit,” said Brian Mendelssohn, owner of Row House Cinema. “We have a great relationship with the Humane Animal Rescue and Frankie’s Friends Cat Rescue, both of whom will receive a portion of all tickets sold.”

Frankie’s Friends will be on site for the festival kick-off on March 10, and will be on stage before the 6 p.m. show with adoptable cats.

Lawrenceville business The Black Cat Market will also be on site, selling goodies in the lobby at 5:30 p.m.

Representatives of Humane Animal Rescue will be at the theater on March 15 to talk about their programming and introduce more adoptable cats.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
