Described as the best animated film since Toy Story, it screens at Warren Theater at 7:30pm. $5.

On Sunday, head out to Redwood Café in Cotati to hear some of the best songwriters in Sonoma County perform their work. Participants include with Jill Cohn, Alison Harris, Sebastian Nau, of the The Highway Poets and Alan Watt.
