Sweden opens first movie theater for dogs

Will films such as Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore or Lassie ever be shown on the big screen again? If all things go as planned for one animal festival in Sweden, it's highly likely.

According to, a pet exhibition in Stockholm featured a movie screening with four-legged rather than two-legged audience members in mind. Coordinated by Fox Home Entertainment, the event included a showing of the recent Owen Wilson comedy Marmaduke.

"A cinema for dogs! This sounded like music to me," project manager Gerd Linden told the news outlet. "A movie with a dog as the principal actor at a pet exhibition? [How] could we do something else?"

The news outlet reports that there were around 20 pooches in attendance for eight different screenings, and festival organizers hope to continue the tradition every year.

This wouldn't be the first time a typically human event was geared towards canines. According to, a Manhattan dog hotel allows participants to not only be treated like royalty, but attend a disco dance as well.
