BRING YOUR DOG TO THE MOVIES
Special Event: Disney’s Lady and the Tramp
BAY SHORE, NY. August 19, 2021 – To celebrate National Dog Day, Movie Lot Drive-In producer, Starfish Junction, will be hosting a special pet-friendly event for Long Island dog lovers. For the first time ever, dog owners are permitted to bring their pups to the drive-in. Families and their pets will enjoy the showing of the 1955 Disney classic, Lady and the Tramp, as part of the Movie Lot Drive-In pop-up series held in the back lot behind the Westfield South Shore Mall in Bay Shore, NY. The special event will take place on Saturday, August 28th at 8:00pm. For information and tickets, visit www.MovieLotDriveIn.com.
A much-loved Disney classic, Lady and the Tramp follows the thrilling adventures of Lady, a lovingly pampered cocker spaniel, and Tramp, a freewheeling mutt with a heart of gold. When Lady's master and mistress, Jim Dear and Darling, leave town for a few days, Aunt Sarah arrives with her two cats to babysit. This heartwarming tale features exquisite animation, unforgettable songs and one of the greatest love stories of all time.
FREE Popcorn for Attendees & Raffles, Prizes, and More for Dogs
As a special “treat” for humans, each car will receive a free bag of popcorn (while supplies last) from the weekend’s snack sponsor, Stew Leonard’s. For our furry friends, all ticket buyers are automatically entered to win a gift card from BarkBox—a monthly subscription service providing dog products, services, and experiences. The winner will be announced prior to the movie. Attendees can also buy raffles and enter to win prizes from Ruff House Rescue—a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer-based organization dedicated to rescuing dogs and cats from high-kill rural shelters.
