Join the Sid Williams Theatre Society for a screening of the family comedy Cats & Dogs this Sunday at 3 p.m.

Unknown to humans, a secret war has been raging between cats and dogs for eons, but a fragile truce has long held the order of the animal kingdom in place. Now the balance of power has tipped, as a researcher, Professor Brody (Jeff Goldblum), is about to invent a vaccine that will erase all human allergies to dogs.

This is too much for the autocratic Mr. Tinkles (Sean Hayes), a white Persian kitty bent on world domination. The Brody home becomes ground zero for the renewed conflict between feline and canine, with a young Beagle puppy named Lou (Tobey Maguire) caught in the middle as the new point man for his species’ cause.

Cats & Dogs was released in 2001. The film co-stars Elizabeth Perkins and Alexander Pollock, as well as the vocal talents of Susan Sarandon, Alec Baldwin, Jon Lovitz, Michael Clarke Duncan, and Joe Pantoliano.

This talking-animal action comedy is from Lawrence Guterman, the co-director of Antz (1998).

“Two thumbs up!” — Ebert and Roeper: At the Movies.

This screening is sponsored by Puntledge Veterinary Clinic and is a fundraising event for the Sid Williams Theatre Society, a charitable organization dedicated to providing the Comox Valley with access to the performing arts and expanding cultural horizons.

This non-profit society also operates the Sid Williams Theatre. Funds raised from the afternoon will support the Society’s volunteer program.

Don’t miss this screening of Cats & Dogs at the Sid Williams Theatre this Sunday at 3 p.m. in Courtenay. Doors will open at 2 p.m. with admission by donation (a $5 donation is suggested). It’s festival seating so come early to ensure you get a good seat.

Watch the movie trailer on the event page under March 2013 at www.sidwilliamstheatre.com.
