Walter Potter: The Man Who Married Kittens Press Viewing and Private Museum Tour

On Thursday, August 14th, the Morbid Anatomy Museum will be hosting a special, private press viewing of filmmaker in residence Ronni Thomas' wonderful "Walter Potter: The Man Who Married Kittens!" This surprisingly tender and heartfelt film features never before seen footage of the great tableaux of eccentric Victorian anthropomorphic taxidermist Walter Potter and the collectors around the world who treasure them. Over the course of this film, you will meet tiny kittens in gowns attending a wedding and having a tea party; toads playing on swings; monkeys riding goats; the funeral of a robin; a two faced kitten; and much, much more.

As part of the evening's festitivites, Thomas will also screen two episodes from his upcoming ‘Morbid Anatomy Presents’ series: “Phantasmagories: The Dark Side of the Light” and “Fragments of Faith: From Relics to Hairwork.” After the film, there will be a brief Q and A with the filmmakers, followed by a special, all access tour of the museum and library with Creative Director Joanna Ebenstein.

The event will take place at The Morbid Anatomy Museum and begin at 8:00 PM. If you are a member of the press and interested in attending, please RSVP to!
