Haven't yet feasted your eyes on Wes Anderson's latest flick, the stop-motion animated delight that is Isle of Dogs? Loved it and want to see it again? It was one of our picks from this year's Berlinale, where it opened the fest and won best director, so we understand. The film is returning to the Astor Theatre for one night only — and, even better, you can bring your own pupper.

The screening will kick off at 7.30pm on Wednesday, August 29, and is bound to turn the cinema's art deco lobby into an isle of dogs — just without the water. There'll also be prizes on offer, so you and your pooch might score more than just a night at the movies.

If your dog is called Spots, then you have to go. The film follows a boy's visit to the titular land mass to find his beloved Spots, after all. The adventure that follows features the voices of a host of Anderson regulars and other ace talent — think Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Bob Balaban, Greta Gerwig, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, Edward Norton and Frances McDormand — and proves as gorgeous as you'd expect. You'd be barking mad to miss it.
