It’s 2019 and self-care is important. Ever found yourself watching cat videos on your phone in bed after a tough day? Or sneaking over to your favorite YouTube channel of kittens cavorting for some quick relaxation in the middle of the work day? Have you ever thought to yourself, “this should be a curated cinema experience I can share with hundreds of my closest friends?” Good news! Tampa Theatre and Oscilloscope Laboratories is bringing you the best, funniest, fuzziest and cuddliest of the only thing the Internet is any good at anymore: cat videos.
Each year, CatVideoFest curates a compilation reel of the latest, best cat videos culled from countless hours of unique submissions and sourced animations, music videos, and, of course, classic internet meme powerhouses. You’ll see favorites you love and be introduced to new favorites that you’ve never seen before. And for the first time ever, you’ll be seeing them in a movie theatre. (You don’t even have to pop your own popcorn anymore!) Best of all, Tampa Theatre will be donating 10% of ticket proceeds to kitties in need at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. It’s the feel-good feline event of the year!
