Canine craft at The Isle of Dogs screening, Kids Film Lounge

Come and make a friendly dog at the screening of Isle of dogs with the The Kids Film Lounge in Centre17.

Make your canine ready for the big screen. Pre screen activity, doors open at 10.30 a.m Free activity with every ticket bought. http://www.stowfilmlounge.com/2018/08/19/isleofdogs-2/

Isle of Dogs, is a beautiful stop frame animation made by Wes Anderson. Cert PG. Tells the tale of a boy looking for his canine friend Spot on a quarantined Island. Has a quirkyness that is associated with Anderson Films. I would say suitable for tweens. If you were a fan of The fantastic Mr Fox, then this film will not disappoint.

Here are some photos I took at a past exhibition, Store X, of the sets for the film.
