Set to open on March 10 at the Cedar Lee Theatre, the documentary film KEDI
centers on a handful of the hundreds of thousands of cats that roam the streets of Istanbul, Turkey. For thousands of years, Istanbul street cats have wandered in and out of people's lives, and the film documents those wanderings.
To help Cleveland’s street cats, the Cedar Lee Theatre
has just announced that it will partner with area shelters who will bring cats in need of homes to the Cedar Lee during select screenings.
“KEDI is a beautiful and charming movie,” says Liz Waski, General Manager of the Cedar Lee Theatre in a press release. “I’m happy that we are able to bring this film to Cleveland and I hope that our partner shelters are able to find good homes for some of our own local cats.”
Patrons are encouraged to bring a donation of cat food or a cat toy. Anyone who makes a donation will receive a coupon for $1 off at the Cedar Lee Theatre concession stand. House of Mews
