I just can’t get enough of James Bowen and his Street Cat Named Bob. I’ve been following the pair ever since the first book was published in 2012. Watching this rags to riches story of an orange cat changing James Bowen’s life from down on his luck drug addict to bestselling author unfold has been pure joy.
Starting tomorrow (in the UK), and November 18 (in limited release in the US), the story of James and Bob is coming to the big screen. James will be played by British actor Luke Treadaway, and Bob will play himself. James was actively involved in the making of the movie as Bob’s “handler,” and will be making a cameo appearance.
Unfortunately, the movie is only released to a limited number of theaters in the US, but here’s hoping that it’ll do so well that it will end up in more theaters eventually. Here’s a list of theaters that will show the movie:
New York, NY Village East
Phoenix, AZ Shea
Cape Ann, MA Cape Ann Cinema
New Orleans, LA Zeitgeist Theater
Pasadena, CA Playhouse 7
Santa Monica, CA Monica 4
Berkeley, CA Shattuck
San Francisco, CA Opera Plaza
Albuquerque, NM High Ridge 8
Austin, TX Arbor Cinemas
Charlotte, NC Ballantyne Village
Irvine, CA Westpark 8
Knoxville, TN Downtown West
Portland, OR Fox Tower
Santa Fe, CA De Vargas 6
Boca Raton, FL Shadowood 166
Sarasota, FL Hollywood 20
Palm Springs, CA Rancho Mirage 15
Las Vegas, NV Village Square 18
Washington, DC Landmark Westend Theater
Sadly, there’s no release date near me, so I’ll be waiting with many of you, hoping for a wider release.
