Pooches and their owners are invited to watch movies under the stars at the Newark Museum's Dog Days of Summer film series. The screenings will take place Thursdays August 10, 17 and 24 at 8:30 pm in the Museum's Alice Ransom Dreyfuss Memorial Garden.
All films in the series are family-friendly. The schedule is as follows:
- August 10: The Secret Life of Pets - The quiet life of a terrier named Max is upended when his owner takes in Duke, a stray whom Max instantly dislikes.
- August 17: Good Boy - An intergalactic dog pilot from Sirius (the dog star), visits Earth to verify the rumors that dogs have failed to take over the planet.
- August 24: Hotel for Dogs - Two kids secretly take in stray dogs at a vacant hotel.
The Alice Ransom Dreyfuss Memorial Garden will be open late for fans of these family-friendly, canine-themed classics. There will be plenty of room for attendees to spread out with blankets or low lawn chairs.
No pup? No problem! Designated seating for people who choose not to bring Fido along will also be provided. The Museum also encourages people who would like to attend with a pet to contact their local shelters so they can learn about dogs and other animals in need of homes.
The gates open at 8 pm and the screenings will start at approximately 8:30 pm. Admission is free for members, Newark residents, children under 10 and furry friends. Non-members can sign up for a membership on the Museum’s website and attend the screenings for free; or purchase tickets for $10 for each Thursday or $25 for all three weeks of the series. To reserve or purchase tickets, visit www.newarkmuseum.org.
Non-alcoholic beverages will be served by the Museum and attendees are welcome to bring food. Attendees will be required to sign a waiver upon arrival stating that their pet will remain on a leash and be cleaned up after. In case of inclement weather, please check the Museum's website.
