‘Isle of Dogs’ in Callicoon
CALLICOON, NY — There will be a CineArt presentation of writer/director Wes Anderson’s stop-motion-animated film “Isle of Dogs” at the Callicoon Theater from Friday, May 18 through Monday, May 21. It will play at 7:30 p.m. on all days, plus 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sunday.
An outbreak of canine flu in Japan leads all dogs to be quarantined on an island. A boy (voice of Koyu Rankin) journeys there to rescue his dog Spots (voice of Liev Schreiber), and gets help from a pack of misfit canines who have also been exiled.
The film features the voices of Frances McDormand, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray and Edward Norton, among others. Anderson previously directed “Moonrise Kingdom,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Rushmore.” “Wes Anderson’s joyous stop-motion feature looks and sounds like nothing we’ve encountered before,” said Joe Morgenstern in the Wall Street Journal.
CineArt is a partnership between the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance and Callicoon Theater that promotes and screens independent, foreign and art films. A percentage of the profits and $1 per person from ticket sales benefit the programs and services of the DVAA.
Admission costs $11 ($9 on Mondays and matinees) and $8 for children under 12 at all shows.
