Do you know the story of Pittsburgh's most famous cat?
Join us for a screening of the film, paired with a kitty adoption event at the theater!
Before Grumpy Cat and Lil Bub, before LOLCats and YouTube, there was Pudgie Wudgie: a twenty-pound, costume-wearing, performing housecat, who in the 1990s took the world (mostly western Pennsylvania) by storm.
We're celebrating Oakmont’s hometown celebrities, Frank Furko and Pudgie Wudgie, with a screening of Frank and the Wondercat!
From humble beginnings training in their Oakmont living room, to NFL tailgate parties, the National Enquirer and The Maury Povich show, this feature-length documentary is a portrait of Frank and Pudgie’s odyssey together.
Before the ...film, there will be adoptable cats and kittens on site! We're happy to report that last year many of the cats found their forever homes!
After the film: Join Frank in the lobby afterwards for a meet and greet!
Doors open at 6:30pm | Bar & Kitchen Open
Film starts at 7:30pm

Film Synopsis:
Following the rise and fall of this semi-famous feline, FRANK AND THE WONDERCAT charts the funny, emotional and intimate journey that Pudgie took with his owner and trainer Frank Furko. From humble beginnings training in their Pittsburgh living room to NFL tailgate parties, the National Enquirer and The Maury Povich show, this is a portrait of their odyssey together. Shown through Furko’s homemade VHS archives – footage that is equal parts hilarious, bizarre and beautiful – their relationship was a remarkable testament to the power of inter-species connection.
A film about love, loss and kinship beyond simple definition, this entertaining and moving slice of Americana captures nine lives well lived.
