Popcorn and doggie treats were at the ready as Ireland held its very first dog-friendly film screening.
Any avid movie-goer attending the screening of Wes Anderson's latest flick “Isle of Dogs” at the Lighthouse Cinema in Smithfield, Dublin, last Sunday may have encountered a few more pooches than they’d originally bargained for as the movie theater opened its doors to the attendees' favorite little four-legged friends.
🎞We had the BEST time watching #IsleOfDogs at Ireland’s first dog friendly movie 🐶screening at @thelighthoused7! So many well behaved dogs 👍Here’s hoping to many more events! Thanks so much @thedoggiedo, @20thcenturyfoxirl & @LightHouseD7 for organising. #dogfriendlyireland pic.twitter.com/7LXZbQOcfH— Dogs Trust Ireland (@DogsTrust_IE) March 25, 2018
In what is claimed to be the first dog-friendly movie screening to ever be held in Ireland, around forty dogs and their owners were invited to sit back and enjoy the movie, along with some popcorn and, of course, plenty of doggie treats.
As well as looking downright adorable as they watched the animated adventure, which features the trials and tribulations of their fellow pups, the dogs, we’re sure with the help of a few treats, were also extremely well behaved and most of them are even said to have enjoyed to the movie.
"It went brilliantly," says Sharon McGarry told the Irish Independent.
"All the dogs were very well behaved and most seemed to enjoy the film."
Organized by The Doggie Do annual canine festival and 20th Century Fox Ireland, the dog-friendly screening was an instant success, so much so that a further screening that allows you to bring along your dog has already sold out for this Friday.
With several others planned in Ireland and the U.K. before the movie’s release on March 30, this is one new trend we hope kicks off really soon.
Just look at their little faces!
