The idea is for owners to relax with their dogs while watching a movie just as they would at home, but there are some rules.
"We've got some guidelines in place to make sure that it is safe, fun, friendly and clean when people show up," Lankford told KXAS. "We do have three doggone rules. Clean up after your pet. Bring the papers showing that your dog is up to date and there are only two dogs per human allowed."
Dogs also need to stay on leashes at all times, unless they are in an area that plainly states otherwise.
The theater also offers concessions for $2, which include candy, popcorn and drinks for humans and dog treats for pups.
K9 Cinemas is only open on weekends and select weekdays for now. Traditional and classics will be shown. Some titles include "Home Alone" and "Elf." More information on the theater is at K9Cinemas.com.
