Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Power House Movie screening of the 2021 documentary Cat Daddies on Wednesday, June 29, 2022 at 7:00 p.m.
David Giovanni is living on the streets of New York, determined to stay together with his beloved cat Lucky. When he’s finally granted a spot in a transitional housing facility that accepts cats, the COVID-19 pandemic and a devastating medical diagnosis puts his future together with Lucky in doubt.
David’s journey is interspersed with portraits of eight other “cat dads” from all over the country and some who struggle to navigate the unprecedented events of 2020 with their little furry friends. They include a group of firefighters, a stunt man, a truck driver, a Bay Area tech worker, a schoolteacher whose cat becomes a viral sensation, and an actor/Instagram influencer. These men couldn’t be more different, but they share an unconditional love of their beloved pets. Cat Daddies is a refreshing and timely exploration of modern masculinity and the unlikely bond between man and cat.
Reserved seating tickets ($15 adults, $10 students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. This event will have a total runtime of about 90 minutes. Blue Mountain Humane Society will be on site to promote local cat adoption opportunities.
Gesa Power House Theatre is currently operating at full capacity, but will continue to follow the most recent guidance from state and county Departments of Health. Current health and safety guidelines at Gesa Power House Theatre are available online or by calling the box office.
Power House Movies are powered by what you can’t get anywhere else in the Walla Walla Valley. Not only do we showcase award-winning festival favorites, feature-length narratives, documentaries, and undiscovered gems, we pair them with exclusive content from the movie makers themselves – most often in conversation with our Director of Film Programming, Warren Etheredge. Join us for a night out in our historic venue, and enjoy a glass of wine with the show. It’s an experience worth leaving the couch for!
