Published Mar 07, 2018If you're worried that your viewing experience of Wes Anderson's mumbly claymation flick Isle of Dogs won't be twee enough, you should go to San Francisco. After all, local cinema Roxie Theater is hosting a "Bring Your Own Dogs" screening.
Yep, you read that correctly — Isle of Dogs will be viewed by an aisle of dogs as pooches fill the theatre. The advanced screening will take place on March 19.
"Dogs and owners will each need to have a ticket to attend," an email from the undeniably quirky theatre company reads. "You do not need to have/bring a dog to attend. Owners are responsible for their dog's behavior."
Naturally, the whole thing sounds like an entirely chaotic evening of dogs begging for popcorn, then digesting and pooping out said popcorn all over the theatre. That said, they'll try to keep their pup patrons under control, as the theatre company promised that "overly aggressive or uncontrollable dogs will be asked to leave."
While you won't be allowed to bring actual canines to theatres in Canada, you and your dogs can check out Isle of Dogs when it releases on March 23.
