He’s catty, and not sorry about it

‘Puss in Boots’ screens at park

He’s catty, and not sorry about it. He handles a sword as easily as he flashes dagger-sharp claws. He can romance a town with a tremor of whiskers and a flick of his tail. He’s clever and agile. He could be the most interesting cat in the world.

Puss in Boots is the star of the free family film in the park today. The Dreamworks animated movie is a spinoff of the beloved Shrek film franchise, anchored by the vim and vigor of the ogre’s feline sidekick.

In this film, Puss (voiced by Antonio Banderas) sets out to find a legendary treasure held in a castle swathed in the clouds. Puss will make it to the trove, but he might have to trade in one of his nine lives to get there.

The free event starts at 8 p.m. today at Quakertown Park, 321 E. McKinney St. Attendees can enjoy a marshmallow roast and crafts, followed by the film at 9 p.m. on a giant screen.

Puss in Boots is rated PG, 90 minutes.

Coming up on June 27: The Lorax.
