Wales offers its first ‘dog-friendly cinema’

Cinema-goers were able to take their pets to a dog-friendly screening in Wales for the first time last weekend (17 February).

The special event was held at Cinema and Co in Swansea and began with doggy snacks and a quiz about famous dogs from film and TV.

Dog owners were then offered nutritional advice for their pets, followed by a screening of Disney’s 1993 film Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey.

Cinema owner Anna Redfern told Wales Online she was “apprehensive” about allowing dogs in at first, but was “surprised by how well the night went”.

Around 30 dogs attended the screening with their owners. While there was some barking at the beginning and a couple of ‘accidents’, the dogs were well behaved.

“This is something that I would definitely love to do again,” she added. “We are thinking about doing this monthly and having a pre-show meal beforehand for the owners and dogs.”

Jonathan Myers, who took his dog Leia to the screening, described it as a “lovely night”.
