Each year, on Saturdays in the late fall
and early spring, Cornell Cinema and the Ithaca Youth Bureau present
the IthaKid Film Fest, a series of unusual children’s programs, most
offered at the low price of just $4 for adults and only $3 for kids 12
and younger. The shows take place in the beautiful Willard Straight
Theatre at 2pm, where reasonably priced popcorn is available.
This spring this ever-popular Festival has gone cat crazy, with three films starring cats! There’s the swashbuckling Puss in Boots; Dino, a cat that bounds across moonlit rooftops at night with his burglar friend in the gorgeously animated A Cat in Paris; and the strange Minoes, a cat who has been mysteriously transformed into a lovely young lady who retains many feline characteristics in Miss Minoes. Some of the films are additionally offered at 4:30 or 5pm matinees on a Saturday or Sunday; check individual film pages for details.
