There are two very special cinema screenings on in Ireland this month, and you can bring your dog to them.

The Lighthouse Cinema in Dublin and Pálás Galway are each hosting a dog-friendly screening of the movie Up, on Sunday August 12th at 11am.

Up is one of our favourite movies of all time – it'll make you cry like a baby, laugh like a loon and fall more in love with dogs than you ever thought possible. 

So we couldn't think of a more fitting movie to share with our furry BFF, especially considering we can wipe our tears in their fur and no one will ever know.

Tickets for the screenings are available from 1pm today at The Lighthouse Cinema and Pálás Galway.

There is nothing more relaxing than snuggling up on the couch with your pooch watching a movie, is there? 


We love gingerbread houses of all shapes and sizes and hey, if Hanzel and Grettle can eat a house made of sweets, why can't we, right?!

But, we fell in love with this Up-themed gingerbread house, spotted on Delish, so much and now we don't know whether to eat it or just look and adore it.

The amazing display has every detail from the movie; the pastel colours, the small front porch and of course, the thousands of colourful balloons.

If only we could make a gingerbread house like that.



Much as we love Pixar's Up, the fact that it begins on a fairly devastating note is always a little hard to bear.

But for this real-life Ellie and Carl, there's no sad goodbye just yet, as they have just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.

With the help of their grandson Jason Lyle Black – already a YouTube star – the married couple put together a gorgeous Up-style tribute to mark their six decades together.

The whole video is an homage to Pixar's most poignant love story, from the tennis-ball cane to the theme tune the couple play together on their piano.

Of course, playing duets is nothing new for Jason's grandparents – the pair have been making music together since they first got married.

"My grandparents were very excited to be part of this video," Jason said. 

"I’ve loved their piano duets ever since I was a little kid, so this will be a family treasure for all of us."

We challenge you not to cry while watching it.



Michael Bey is the director of some of the biggest blockbusters of our time, such as Transformers and Armageddon. He’s quite found of explosions and dramatic music – unlike the producers of Pixar’s Up who relied more on the sweet story and nice plinky plonky music to set the scene.

However, someone decided to give Up the Michael Bay treatment, and now it looks like a VERY different film! We’re not sure we like it!
