Opera House presents buddy comedy ‘Dog’
The next film in the Cinema Series at the 1891 Fredonia Opera House Performing Arts Center is “Dog,” co-directed by and starring Channing Tatum. It will be screened on Saturday and Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
“Dog” is a buddy comedy that follows the misadventures of two former Army rangers paired against their will on the road trip of a lifetime. Army Ranger Jackson Briggs (Tatum) and Lulu (a Belgian Malinois) buckle into a 1984 Ford Bronco and race down the Pacific Coast in hopes of making it to a fellow soldier’s funeral on time. Along the way, they’ll drive each other completely crazy, break a small handful of laws, narrowly evade death, and learn to let down their guards in order to have a fighting chance of finding happiness.
Linda Marric, in The Jewish Chronicle, calls the film “an engaging drama comedy (with) just the right amount of likability.”
Rated PG-13 for language, thematic elements, drug content and some suggestive material, “Dog” runs one hour, 41 minutes. Tickets are available at the door for $7 (adults), $6.50 (seniors & Opera House members) and $5 (students) the night of each screening. A book of 10 movie passes is available for $60 at the door or online at www.fredopera.org. For more information, call the Opera House Box Office at 716-679-1891. The Opera House
