Opera House presents buddy comedy ‘Dog’

“Dog” takes place on Saturday and Tuesday.

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
