Bring four-legged friend for Doggie Date Night at Lyric

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

STUART — Cuddle up with your four-legged best friend during Doggie Date Night at the Lyric's Flagler Center and settle in for some laughs. Presented by the Lyric Theatre and the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast, the event will be held on Sept. 29 at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. and will include dinner and the hysterical cult-classic, canine comedy, “Best In Show.” The cost is $25.

If your date … er, dog … gets restless, not to worry. He can mingle with other tail waggers in the complimentary doggie lounge, hosted by The Fur Seasons Resort for Pets, while you enjoy the movie. Your pooch won’t go hungry either, thanks to Paws Over Tradition - A Dog Bakery. They’re providing doggie bags.

Dinner will be served 30 minutes prior to each screening. Doors will close promptly at 5 p.m. for the early screening and 8 p.m. for the late screening. Seating is limited and reservations are highly recommended.

“This is a rare opportunity to bring your dog to see a movie with you,” said HSTC Community Events Manager Jackie Ranaldo.

“Best in Show,” directed by Christopher Guest and written by Guest and Eugene Levy, is a comedy filled with an all-star cast including Parker Posey, Michael Hitchcock, John Michael Higgins, Michael McKean, Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara and Christopher Guest. The motion picture was a Golden Globe nominee for Best Motion Picture - Musical/Comedy, and winner of the American Comedy Award for funniest Motion Picture.
