Feline film fest: Anyone who's owned a cat knows they're always getting into things they shouldn't. Well, at the Ray D. Preuter Library's Family Film Night Monday, cats will be getting into footwear and headgear. More precisely, there will be a "Puss in Boots" and a "Cat in the Hat" by Dr. Seuss. Show time is 7 p.m. Admission is free. The library is at 510 Park Ave. in Port Hueneme. For information call 486-5460.

The Ojai Film Society on Sunday will present "The Navigator," a 1989 picture from New Zealand that was nominated for a Golden Palm, the top award given at the Cannes Film Festival.

Set in the 14th Century, "The Navigator" is the story of the inhabitants of a remote village in England who consider a 9-year-old psychic boy and his visions as their only hope of escaping the black plague. The boy leads the group through an expedition to the other side of the earth and into a 20th-Century city.

Show time is 4:30 p.m. at the Ojai Playhouse, 145 E. Ojai Ave.

Thousand Oaks Library's monthly Classic Cinema presentations resume Saturday with the 1970 Peruvian film "The Green Wall."

It's the story of the struggles of a family that has headed for the jungle in an attempt to escape oppression in Lima, Peru. Said Amani Fliers, organizer of the Classic Cinema nights: "It's one of those underground movies that were very popular in art theaters, not in your major film theaters."

The film is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. at the library, 1401 E. Janss Road. For information call 495-1392.
