When street musician James Bowen (Luke Treadaway) finds an injured ginger cat curled up in the hallway of his apartment building, he has no idea how much his life is about to change. James had been living hand-to-mouth on the streets of London, barely making enough money to feed himself, and the last thing he needed was a pet. Yet James cannot resist helping the strikingly intelligent but very sick animal, whom he names Bob. He slowly nurses Bob back to health and then sends the cat on his way, imagining that he will never see him again. But Bob has other ideas, and the resulting friendship is cathartic and inspiring, for James and for us. Based on the international best-selling book.

THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY
EIGHT DAYS A WEEK
THURS. SEPT. 29 @ 7:30PM ONLY
THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK – THE TOURING YEARS is based on the first part of The Beatles’ career (1962-1966) – the period in which they toured and captured the world’s acclaim. Ron Howard’s film explores how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become this extraordinary phenomenon, “The Beatles.” It will explore their inner workings – how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together – all the while, exploring The Beatles’ extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities. The film will focus on the time period from the early Beatles’ journey in the days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966.
THE FILM WILL BE PRECEDED BY A CONCERT BY THE BEATLES ’64 TRIBUTE BAND,
A TOWN CALLED PANIC:
SAT. SEPT. 24 @ 2:30PM & 4:00PM ONLY
Take another trip to A Town Called Panic, with two award-winning new specials from the directors of the zany feature film and the Academy Award®-nominated Ernest & Celestine, in theaters on September 24 for one day only!
With disarming wit and hilarious visuals, A Town Called Panic: Double Fun revels in the simple setup of three plasticine toys sent on increasingly surreal and freewheeling adventures. Cowboy and Indian are always up to some harebrained scheme, with Horse left to clean up the mess. In Christmas Panic, their out-of-control antics lead Horse to call Santa and cancel the presents. But the boys figure they can still save Christmas… if they break into their neighbor’s house to steal his yule log! In Back to School Panic, a class assignment yields a special prize, but only Pig knows the answer. Cowboy and Indian use a special shrinking potion to sneak into Pig’s brain, where they discover a sodium-packed world of pig cops riding in bacon cars and sausage cycles.
These new short films continue the brilliant, over-the-top visual inventiveness that has given the series a dedicated cult following, with a classic slapstick comedy sensibility that is perfect for all ages. This special Arthouse Theater Day release continues with the fun with an intermission featuring two classic A Town Called Panic shorts, Lisa & Jan and Cow-Hulk, where ill-behaved European backpackers and an alien microbe cause even more mayhem!
