A Theater Invited a Bunch of Dogs to Come See 'Isle Of Dogs' and the Photos Are Even Cuter Than the Movie (Video)
These movie-goers gave Wes Anderson’s latest flick, "Isle of Dogs," two paws up.
The Light House Cinema in Smithfield, Dublin, hosted some special cinephiles on Sunday for a screening of the film: a huge pack of pups and their owners who were ready to sit back, enjoy some popcorn and dog-friendly treats, and enjoy a movie about their favorite subject, dogs.
Probably the best part (other than the movie, of course), were all the adorable photos people shared on social media of their beloved canine companions. About 40 dogs were in attendance.
The cinema partnered with The Doggie Do annual canine festival and 20th Century Fox Ireland to make the first-ever dog-friendly film screening in an Ireland theater happen.
According to Ireland's Independent, the screening was such a success, the theater is planning to have another event.
“It went brilliantly," Sharon McGarry of Fox told theIndependent. "All the dogs were very well behaved and most seemed to enjoy the film. The Light House are doing another dog friendly screening on Friday which sold out in minutes."
Dogs Trust Ireland, a non-profit dedicated to rehabilitating and rehoming dogs, also tweeted about the fun event and how “well behaved” all the dogs were.
Several other doggie screenings were also planned across the UK. Hopefully this idea will catch on and U.S. movie theaters will adopt the idea. Every member of the family — including dogs — should be able to enjoy a day at the movies.
