Row House Cinema debuts 70-minute 'Pittsburgh's Pretty Kitties'
More than 160 proud Pittsburgh-area cat parents submitted videos of their little fur balls to Row House Cinema's first week-long Cat Film and Cultural Festival, showing Nov. 10 to 16.
The 70-minute finished product, "Pittsburgh's Pretty Kitties," is, according to a news release, a compilation of the "most purr-fect, a-meow-zing, and totally fur-tastic cat videos Pittsburgh has ever seen."
Considering how much screen time cats and kittens dominate, that claim ought to make feline fans curious.
Submitted videos are being judged on the following categories: Cutest, Funniest, Bravest, or Most Yinzer.
What might qualify a cat as a Yinzer, anyway? One who sleeps with a Terrible Towel? Or one who takes delicate nibbles from a Primanti's tuna sammy?
Those attending will find out on closing night, Nov. 16, when winners are announced. Row House Cinema is located at 4115 Butler St. in Lawrenceville.
Videos selected for "Pittsburgh's Pretty Kitties" will be judged locally and become eligible to win unspecified prizes.
Show times for "Pittsburgh's Pretty Kitties" are:
• 6:45 p.m., Nov. 10
• Noon and 3:20 p.m. Nov. 11
• 12:45 and 6 p.m. Nov. 12
• 8:45 p.m. Nov. 13
