Dog-friendly cinema – a first for Conwy in Wales

It’s generally been frowned upon to take your dog into a public event, but here at Abergele your pet can come along for a night out too. However, the management of PetPlace, a pet store in the town has created a movie theatre right next door. With capacity for 40 people and 50 dogs, it’s sure to be a great success. What can be more enjoyable for pet owners with their dogs to meet other like-minded animal lovers? Certainly, at only £10 each ticket to admit one adult and a dog, it’s sure to be a massive sell-out.

Dog-friendly snacks and drinks available too

We all love popcorn and fizzy drinks when we visit the movies, well now our dogs can enjoy the fun too. Dog-friendly snacks and drinks titled “Pawsecco” and “Bottom Sniffer” all made from herbs and elderflower will go down a treat.

Pet-related chart toppers

Of course the films they show are going to be dog-related! Expect to see 101 Dalmatians, Beethoven or the Secret Life of Pets. It’s certainly not going to be a quiet event like it normally is at the cinema. It’s only going to take one howling dog to set the others off too.

I live in County Durham, in the North East of England, and have been a freelance writer for several years. My hobbies include travelling, gardening and spending time with my grandchildren. I believe that animal lovers are a special group of humans, full of empathy, big-hearted, rather prone to sentimentality and generous of spirit. No matter how few possessions or how little money you have, owning a pet makes you a rich person!
