      Hi Violet, the Telethon Community Cinemas FAQs on their website states: “Sadly, no. As much as we love our furry and other pets, we have restrictions set by our venues. However, service dogs are certainly permitted provided appropriate proof can be provided.”. You might like to check other outdoor cinema venues to see if pets are allowed.
