This Cinema Is Screening 'Cats' The Movie For Dogs And We're Totally Going

This Cinema Is Screening 'Cats' The Movie For Dogs And We're Totally Going

Dogs have long been the star of the big screen with memorable performances throughout cinema history from our furry friends Beethoven, Lassie and Toto to name a few.

Now paying heed to (wo)man's best friend, Picturehouse Cinemas have organised a dog-friendly screening next month so you can finally enjoy the cinematic experience together.

Rather ironically, they are hosting a special screening of Tom Hooper's Cats, which hits theatres from 20th December.

We're not joking. Either this is a hilarious coincidence or someone at the cinema chain has a wicked sense of humour given the pets historic relationship.

If attending the screening with a dog, your furry friend will be given a fleece blanket to cover the seat used by them or to use as a rug if they'd prefer to lie on the floor.

That's not all as the cinema will provide bowls of water around the screen, so they won't go thirsty.

Slightly different from your usual cinema experience, the screening room will raise lighting levels a little higher than usual during the screening and lower the volume of the soundtrack for the welfare of our furry friends.

Keep in mind, they limit their screenings to one dog to one adult. Sorry, there's potential for this to be a ruff crowd but you're welcome without a pooch too.

Back to the movie at hand, Andrew Lloyd Webber's revered musical Cats has been adapted for the big screen.

Featuring a star-studded cast, the film reimagines the musical for a new generation with spectacular production design, state-of-the-art technology and dance with Oscar winner Hooper at the helm.

Idris Elba stars as Macavity, Rebel Wilson plays Jennyanydots, Ray Winston is Growltiger, Judi Dench undertakes the role of Old Deuteronomy, James Corden plays Bustopher Jones and Ian McKellen is Gus the Theatre Cat.
