The Little is teaming up with Verona Street Animal Society and Rochester Animal Services (RAS) for a special screening of the cats in Istanbul documentary Kedi, plus an adoption event.
The adoption event will take place 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 26 in The Little's event space. This area is connected to theater 1 on East Avenue, and can be accessed through the event space entrance or by entering through the theater 1 doors. Kedi will screen at 12 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. in theater 1. General admission tickets are $7, and will be available at thelittle.org. The adoption event is free. Verona Street cats (and perhaps a few dogs) will be at The Little March 26!
Your cat can be a big screen star: During the adoption event, and before the Kedi screening, The Little will be showing a (insert cat pun of your choice) cat slideshow. Send photos of your cat to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to any of The Little's social media accounts, and we'll share the pictures on the big screen. Feel free to include your cat's name, along with the origin story of how you met your feline friend.

More about Kedi: Hundreds of Turkish cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. For thousands of years they’ve wandered in and out of people’s lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, the cats of Istanbul live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame — and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to the people, allowing them to reflect on their lives in ways nothing else could.
Critics and internet cats agree — this cat documentary will charm its way into your heart and home as you fall in love with the cats in Istanbul.
