Dogs take their seats at cinema

PAMPERED pooches will be queuing up at the box office to take a seat for the latest Walt Disney best selling film.

PAMPERED pooches will be queuing up at the box office to take a seat for the latest Walt Disney best selling film.

The furry friends, accompanied by their owners of course, are being invited to sample the big movie atmosphere at a Suffolk cinema.

When the lights dim at Leiston Film Theatre the dogs will savour the special screening of the new film Bolt - and they will be able to munch their own pick-n-mix.

Owners will be provided with a poop bag just in case the excitement becomes too much for their dogs at the bizarre event.

Management and staff at Leiston Film Theatre admit it is a rather unusual film showing but they think it is an ideal way to help the cinema celebrate its 95th anniversary.

Dog owners brave enough to take up the challenge will be rewarded with a cut-price ticket of only 95p.

Wayne Burns, manager of the film theatre, said: ''All dogs must be kept on a short lead and accompanied by a responsible adult aged 18 or over and cats are most certainly not permitted to see the film.”

The doggie screening takes place at 11.30am on February 8 prior to the film's official release on February 13.
