Melbourne’s dog-friendly outdoor cinema is back


A special event for dogs (and their owners) will go down on December 10, screening Lady and the Tramp as dogs are given a chance to walk the red carpet. All proceeds will go to Australia’s largest not-for-profit animal hospital, Lort Smith. 

Elsewhere, there’s an entire week dedicated to Ryan Gosling just in time for Valentine’s day, with free cocktails for all cinema-goers recreating Gosling’s favourite drinks from Crazy Stupid Love

“QV Cinema was such a hit last year and this summer’s season will have even more themed weeks and events,” said Melbourne filmmaker and film programmer Gus Berger. “The sport movie week from January 12-15 will feature pre-film games and prizes, while the music week from January 19-22 will include live music performances, and we have a pre-film performance from the Melbourne Musical Theatre Festival on January 8. The wildly popular bring-your-dog screenings have also been upsized.”
