Bow Wow WOW: Dog-friendly screenings of Isle of Dogs

First Isle of Dogs freaked everyone out when they realized the title sounds like “I Love Dogs.”

Then, there were a series of screenings of the Wes Anderson movie just for dogs.

Picturehouse was behind the initiative, which took place all over the UK on Sunday.

Screenings were also held around the United States.

Ireland’s screening of the animated film is believed to be a first dog-friendly open-door policy for that country.

The Lighthouse Cinema in Dublin hosted the truly tail-wagging event.

What’s not to love?

Dogs rule.

Theatres around the world need to do more of this.

Jeff Goldblum and Bill Murray, who lend their voices to the film, agree.

Goldblum attending a puppy-screening in New York, saying: “I’ll come and clean up, too, if they make any mess,” he said. “Bring them in! We can’t get too close to dogs!”

And Murray telling the Hollywood Reporter much the same.

“I think it’s a very good idea. I think it’s a great idea, as a matter of fact,” Murray said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of theaters had dog days. We have dog days at baseball parks, and it’s a huge hit. I think they should have dog days in the movie theater.”
