CITY Screen, York, welcomes man’s best beasts to a dog-friendly screening of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald on Sunday morning.

At 11am, dog owners can bring their pooch to the Coney Street Picturehouse to catch the second edition of the Fantastic Beasts franchise. Written by J. K. Rowling and directed by David Yates, the film stars Eddie Redmayne, Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Katherine Waterston.

"Picturehouse cinemas have hosted dog-friendly screenings since 2017, setting tails wagging nationwide ever since," says marketing manager Dave Taylor. "City Screen previously hosted a preview of Wes Anderson’s Isle Of Dogs, which was a howl for dog-owners in York.

"Furry friends are sat on the blankets provided, so they keep the seats clean, and just as we humans love a cinema snack, so dog treats and water are provided. To cater further to cinema-loving pooches, the volume is dipped to suit their superhero hearing powers."

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald (12A) re-enters Rowling's wizarding world, this time swapping the hustle and bustle of 1920s' New York for the moody streets of Paris a year on, where a slew of new characters and wonderful beasts await discovery.

Powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (a wildly white-haired Depp) has slipped the bars of custody and is out to purge the world of all non-magical beings. In a desperate bid to restore harmony, a young Albus Dumbledore (Law) calls upon the help of former Hogwarts student Newt Scamander (Redmayne) to stop Grindelwald and his growing army of pure-blood wizards in their tracks. However, this only marks the start of a perilous quest into a world of dark magic.
