An evening out for the whole family, including the dog
You and your furry companion are invited to Doggy Drive-In, a special event held at the Coburg Drive-In Cinema on Sunday the 13th of March.

You and pooch will be watching the new animated film Zootopia, set in a world run by creatures great and small, in which a policewoman rabbit and a criminal suspect fox must team up after they are targeted by a conspiracy.
Note: there are no guarantees that your dog will appreciate the finer points of the film.
As well as the advance screening of Zootopia, the evening will have special activities for you and your furry friend, with a highlight being the photo booth for dogs. The event is presented by the RSPCA, which will be doing information sessions on the night. Activities kick off at 6:30pm, while the movie begins at 8:30pm, after sunset.
As usual, pricing is by the person or by the car-load, with no extra cost for your dog's ticket. Adult tickets are $18.50 each; child, student, or concession tickets are $15 each, and a senior citizen ticket is $11.50. If you have a car packed full of movie-goes, it will be cheaper to pay $45 for a car load of up to five people. Do book your ticket online ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
If you miss out on the Doggy Drive-In event, you can still enjoy a film with you dog on any day you like. The Coburg Drive-In Cinema as well as Melbourne's other drive-in cinemas in Dandenong and Dromana are pet-friendly, though your dog will need to be well-behaved and adhere to their rules.
