Gables Art Cinema Invites Canines to Premiere of My Dog Tulip
|My Dog Tulip at Coral Gables Art Cinema|
Billed as a "pet-tastic" event, the furry fun takes place outside of the cinema in its plaza. There will be dog goodie giveaways and other pet friendly events. And if you don't have a dog of your own, there's even more reason to show up as there will be dog adoptions available from Friends Forever Rescue--they're actually bringing dogs.
The event leads up to the premiere screenings, 7 and 9 p.m. of the animated film based on J.R. Ackerley's memoir by the same name, a work Truman Capote called "one of the greatest books ever written by anybody in the world." The film recounts Ackerley's experience with a willful German shepherd that he adopted late in life. As well as being funny and heart-warming the film is also innovative as it was the first animated feature ever to be entirely hand drawn and painted utilizing paperless computer technology. Check out the trailer:
There is some star power in the voices lent to the animated characters, including Isabella Rossellini, Christopher Plummer, and the late Lynn Redgrave. Just because it's animated doesn't mean the movie is for kids, as it does show graphic depictions of animal sex. Even though the night is dedicated to the dogs, they still aren't allowed into the screenings - after all, this isn't Paris - so make plans for a quick drop off or pet-sitting if you plan to catch the flick on opening night.
My Dog Tulip opens on Friday with showings at 7 and 9 p.m. at the Coral Gables Art Cinema (260 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables). The film runs through February 10. Call 786-385-9689 or visit gablescinema.com for more information.
