FORD ARTS BEATS & EATS: A CAT IN PARIS

Friday, August 30, 2013 – Sunday, September 01, 2013

This Labor Day weekend the DIA will bring the DFT experience to the streets of Royal Oak. For the first time Ford Arts, Beats and Eats will feature an outdoor screening, the animated film A Cat In Paris, recommended for ages seven and over. The film stars Dino, a cat who lives a double life as a little girl’s pet by day, and a sly “cat” burglar by night. A Cat in Paris pays homage to classic noir and gangster films with help from a sizzling jazz soundtrack that features legendary artist, Billie Holiday. The film is brought to life with help from Oscar® winners Anjelica Huston and Marcia Gay Harden. The 65-minute program will be shown inside the Oakland County Parks Kids Zone from 8:30pm to 10 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. read more
