Can't wait to feast your eyes on Wes Anderson's latest flick, the stop-motion animated delight that is Isle of Dogs? It was one of our picks of this year's Berlinale, where it opened the fest and won best director, so we understand. The film doesn't release in Australian theatres until April 12, but Moonlight Cinemas is giving eager fans a sneak peek — and, even better, you can bring your own pupper.

The event will celebrate Moonlight's last night of its 2017-18 season, and is bound to turn Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens into an isle of dogs — just without the water. And while you can take your pooch to any of this year's sessions at the outdoor cinema, there's no better movie to take them to than this.

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.
