Ever wondered if you could save a few bucks on treats for your dog by just popping them some corn? Now’s the time to try, when you and your best fur friend get the rare chance to share a bucket, at the Bijou Theatre’s hosting on Saturday, Sept. 23, of the NY Dog Film Festival, traveling to dozens of cities this year after a successful national tour in 2016.

A cinematic celebration of the love between dogs and people, the Dog Film Festival supports a local life-saving shelter wherever it travels. A portion of every ticket at the Lincoln City screening will benefit the Lincoln County Animal Shelter. Well-mannered dogs are welcome at no charge.

“I’m delighted for animal lovers in the community to experience the many ways that people love and need their dogs,” said NY Dog Film Festival Founder/ Director Tracie Hotchner.

“While recognizing the great work of a local shelter in bringing pets and their people together,”

Perfect for dog lovers of all ages, the NY Dog Film Festival will feature two programs,

10 am Outdoor Adventures with Dogs

11:30 am Who Rescued Whom?

Each program runs approximately 70 minutes, and will run as a double feature with a potty break in between.

Tickets are $10 for the double feature. The Bijou Theatre is located at 1624 NE Highway 101.
