MEMBERS-ONLY: Lil Bub & Friendz (free sneak preview!)

Co-presented by Violetville Vintage. NOTE: admission to this event is for current Cinefamily members +1 only.

Violetville Vintage — the L.A.-based specialists devoted to both the best in vintage designer clothing, and the ongoing fight for animal welfare — hosts the L.A. premiere of the new Vice documentary on one of Cinefamily’s favorite kitties, along with a launch party for their new online hub,! “Called ‘the most famous cat on the Internet,’ the wide-eyed perma-kitten Lil Bub is the adorable embodiment of the web’s fascination with all things cats. Born with a rare congenital condition leaving her features perpetually kitten-like, Bub has won over millions of online fans through her YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram sites, which her owner Mike Bridavsky faithfully maintains. Eager to meet the rest of the web’s biggest cat celebrities, Bub and her owner Mike hit the road on a wild cross-country romp, visiting Nyan Cat, Grumpy Cat, the late Keyboard Cat and a few aspiring new starlets. Chock full of adorable kitties, hilarious videos and the dedicated cat enthusiasts who love them, Lil Bub & Friendz is a fun and hip peek behind the curtain of the memes we know and love.” (Tribeca Film Festival.) The show begins with a selection of 16mm nature films on the subject of cute critters — plus, join us for a back patio afterparty, to check out Violetville’s selection of vintage clothes in person, and enter to win a $100 gift certificate for their new online shop!
