Cinema offers dog owners the chance to take their pets along for screenings

Dog owners can take their perfect pooches to the cinema to watch some of the latest releases.

For the Abbeygate Cinema, in Hatter Street, Bury St Edmunds, is providing a blanket, water, free treats and a doggie-friendly ice cream to owners who take their pets along on Monday mornings.

“Elvis” will show at the inaugural screening on Monday, July 4, and bookings can be made at
