Bring your pooch along to a preview of The Call Of The Wild, an adaptation of Jack London's classic dog adventure tale. Wendy Mitchell, author of the new book Citizen Canine: Dogs in the Movies, will kick off the screening with an entertaining talk about the most famous canines on the big screen. Laurence King Publishing will offer Citizen Canine books for sale at a 30% discount for ticketholders, and the author will sign copies after the film.
Adapted from the beloved literary classic, The Call Of The Wild vividly brings to the screen the story of Buck, a big-hearted dog whose blissful domestic life is turned upside down when he is suddenly uprooted from his California home and transplanted to the exotic wilds of the Alaskan Yukon during the Gold Rush of the 1890s. As the newest rookie on a mail delivery dog sled team – and later its leader – Buck experiences the adventure of a lifetime, ultimately finding his true place in the world and becoming his own master.
Bringing your dog to the film? Please take a moment to read a few need-to-knows:
We’ll give you a fleece blanket to cover your dog’s seat or to use as a rug if they sit on the floor.
Bowls of water will be provided around the screen, and during the film we’ll leave lighting levels a little higher than usual and lower the volume of the soundtrack.
We reduce capacity for Dog-Friendly screenings, so there may be fewer tickets than usual. Admits are limited to one dog per adult.
