Vienna cinema starts monthly Doggy Day to attract customers!February 7th, 2008 - 4:56 pm ICT by admin
London, Feb 7 (ANI): An Austrian cinema has employed a unique technique to lure more customers allowing their pet dogs into the theatre.
The old Admiral cinema in Vienna has been struggling to attract customers after construction of multiplex cinemas nearby.
Thus bosses have started a monthly “Doggy Day” in a bid to attract more cinema-goers.
Visitors pay four pounds for a ticket while their pet pooches can go in for free and be given a blanket in which to snuggle up in their seats, as well as water and popcorn.
“The volume for the films is turned down a bit so as not to hurt the animals’ ears, the Mirror quoted a cinema spokesman, as saying.
Thomas Feldinger, who took his labrador Hanjo, to the cinema said: “He loved it in there and so did all the other dogs.” (ANI)
