Alamo Drafthouse to Hold Encore Screenings of ISLE OF DOGS in Honor of National Dog Day
In honor of National Dog Day on August 26th, the Alamo Drafthouse chain will hold encore screenings of Wes Anderson's animated Isle of Dogs, according to Variety.
The screenings will be held at 25 locations and will be followed by a special recorded conversation between Anderson and co-star Bob Balaban. 10% of all ticket sales for the event will be donated to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
"What a combination: the ASPCA, Alamo Drafthouse, and Mr. Bob Balaban," said Anderson. "I leapt at the chance to be a part of this little shindig and share our movie during its last days on the big screen."
Isle of Dogs is set in Japan and follows a boy's odyssey IN SEARCH OF his dog. THE VOICE cast includes F. Murray Abraham, Bud Cort, Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig, Jeff Goldblum, Akira Ito, Scarlett Johansson, Harvey Keitel, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Kunichi Nomura, Yoko Ono, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Tilda Swinton, Akira Takayama and Frank Wood.
The ASPCA's Christina Wyman said, "We're pleased to partner with Alamo Drafthouse on this National Dog Day project that celebrates the special bond between people and ANIMALS. All animals deserve strong voices to represent them, whether that voice comes from famous actors in a movie or average people committed to animal welfare in the real world."
