Another special movie event to look forward to this summer: The second annual New York Dog Film Festival will stop at West Seattle’s Admiral Theater on Sunday, August 6th. And part of the proceeds will benefit West Seattle-based Furry Faces Foundation. Here’s the announcement F3 shared today:

Following its overwhelming success last year in Seattle, and its national tour to 10 cities in 2016, the NY Dog Film Festival will be traveling to 48 cities this year. The 2nd Annual NY Dog Film Festival™ is returning to Seattle on August 6, 2017, at the Historic Admiral Theater, with two programs of completely new films at 3 PM and 5 PM. Dogs will be welcome in the theater, once again delighting the avid dog lovers of Seattle and proving the Festival’s own mission of showing how remarkable the bond is between dogs and their people.

Perfect for dog lovers of all ages, the NY Dog Film Festival™ will feature two programs, each of which features a different medley of documentary, animated and live-action short canine-themed films from around the world. The films illuminate human-canine love and are uplifting, with happy outcomes. Each program runs approximately 70 minutes.

3:00 PM – “Outdoor Adventure with Dogs” (77 minutes)
5:00 PM – “Who Rescued Whom?” (74 minutes)

NY Dog Film Festival™ Founder/ Director Tracie Hotchner, a well-known pet wellness advocate and author of The Dog Bible: Everything Your Dog Wants You to Know, will bring local dog aficionados together with their dogs as “their movie dates” to share a communal experience of watching short films that celebrate the remarkable bond between people and dogs.

Tickets are $12 for humans and $5 for dogs (service dogs are free). A portion of every ticket will go to Furry Faces Foundation. Purchase advance tickets online by going here.

The Admiral is at 2343 California SW.

    Yesssss! So does the cover get you into both showings or just one?

      If you click through to the ticket link, you’ll see a button for 3 pm and a button for 5 pm. Separate tickets.

     Important questions: More research may be required.

    1. Will the concession stand be selling Milk Bones rather than Milk Duds?
    2. Is this an off leash event?
    3. Will the staff be going up and down the aisles requesting “no barking , please?” Or passing out “sit and stay” commands? Will they be paid an extra bonus for any extra  crowd control or clean up? 
    4. Does each dog get a seat or are laps required for viewing?
    5. Since the theatre is double screen is there a simultaneous Take Your Cat to the Movies event going on at the same time?  

Sorry, comment time is over.
