It's not every day a humble dog magazine editor gets an invite to a red carpet premiere, but on Sunday we had laminated bits of cardboard that gained us access to a very unusual screening of Cats and Dogs: the revenge of Kitty Galore.
Dogs were welcome. But we still left ours at home.
I know, killjoys.
But Oscar and Tess aren't great film fans. And as we were going out for lunch afterwards finding dog friendly dining was going to be quite a challenge in central London.
No one said anything about cats being welcome and I must say I didn't see any!
It was set in a fantastic venue, the outdoor theatre at Holland Park. I had worried what would happen if it indeed rained cats and dogs, and there was indeed a brief shower, but there was a spectacular canopy (if sadly no spectacular canapés!)
I'd had a bit of a late night on Friday and only a sketchy memory of Saturday for some reason, but it was still no excuse for me dropping off during the film!
I am told by Cameron and his friend Beanz that I missed a brilliant film, but I'm afraid I have fallen asleep at many glittering occasions Silverstone during the Grand Prix, Wimbledon Centre Court matches, Front row at Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders... I could go on. I am famous for dropping off.
I stayed awake long enough to clock a very attractive Anatolian Karabash is one of the lead roles. Now that's imaginative casting!
The movie goes on general release on August 3rd, in 3D, too!
There were quite a few celebs and their dogs on the red carpet and we did enjoy trying to spot them! I was Twittering when an eagle-eyed follower spotted another blogger, also in the audience, doing the exactly same thing so we started Tweeting to each other! (@dulwichmum)
Here's some more photos of the big day...
