According to The Strand Theatre's "CatVideoFest" Facebook Event Page,

"CatVideoFest is a compilation reel of the latest and best cat videos culled from countless hours of unique submissions and sourced animations, music videos, and classic internet powerhouses."

"CatVideoFest is a joyous communal experience, only available in theaters, and raises money for cats in need through partnerships with local cat charities, animal welfare organizations, and shelters to best serve cats in the area."

The Strand plans to donate a portion of the ticket proceeds collected for CatVideoFest to Thomaston's Pope Memorial Humane Society. So in a way, it's cats helping cats while they make us laugh, too. We call that a win-win.

The Strand is located at 345 Main St, Rockland. Organizers say CatVideoFest is appropriate for all ages, so load up your kids and your grandparents, and take a day trip to Rockland...to watch cat videos...and help a good cause.
