“Never Cry Wolf” Shown at First Canine Cinema Screening

June 28 promises to be one of the most light-hearted family events of the summer, as the first-ever Canine Cinema takes place at the Peg Egan PAC in Egg Harbor. It will be a perfect evening under the stars as families and their dogs gather for an outdoor screening of the Disney film Never Cry Wolf. All animal lovers and their pets are invited to this event, scheduled to begin at 7:30 pm.

Never Cry Wolf is based on the Farley Mowat book of the same name, describing his adventurous work as a government biologist in the Artic, examining the interaction between wolves and caribou herds.

A partnership between the Door County Humane Society (DCHS) and Ministry Door County Medical Center made it possible to offer the film for free to attendees. DCHS Executive Director Carrie Counihan said, “We are overjoyed to have Canine Cinema join our list of events because it promises to offer so much sharing and laughter. The therapeutic value of animals is well-known, so having Ministry Door County join us for this celebration is perfect.” To continue its work with homeless animals, free will donations to the shelter are appreciated.

Gates open at 7 pm and everyone is invited to bring a picnic basket, dog treats, lawn chairs or blankets. Prior to the screening, dog owners will be invited to the stage microphone to share an impromptu anecdote about life with their pet. There is no alternate rain location.
