Movie Night – My Dog Tulip – Thurs 31st March
Neighbourhood Cinema movie night at CICCIC with animation drama film ‘My Dog Tulip’. 7.30pm.
My Dog Tulip is an American independent animated feature film based on the 1956 memoir of the same name by J. R. Ackerley, BBC editor, novelist and memoirist. The film tells the story of Ackerley’s fifteen-year relationship with his Alsatian dog (German Shepherd) Queenie, who had been renamed Tulip for the book. The film – geared toward an adult audience – was adapted, directed and animated by Paul Fierlinger with backgrounds and characters painted by his wife, Sandra Fierlinger.
Christopher Plummer narrated Ackerley’s voice, Isabella Rossellini provided the voice of the veterinarian, and Lynn Redgrave provided the voice (in her last film performance) of Ackerley’s sister Nancy.
The film premiered at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival on June 10, 2009 and received Honourable Mention for Best Animated Film at the 2009 Ottawa International Animation Festival.

Why Watch Movies at CICCIC
If you love going to the movies but adore a homely atmosphere, perhaps even a beer or glass of wine then Creative Innovation Centre’s Community Cinema programme will bring a fresh new approach to local movie watching.
Registered as a community cinema in Paul Street, Taunton, the independent flexibility of screening films for audience numbers of up to 60 means an intimate setting for a great movie night out.
Andrew Knutt, director at CICCIC said “Movie goers can lounge in our sofas, grab a drink at the bar, even nominate movies for us to screen and even hire private movie screenings.”
CICCIC is a registered Neighbourhood Cinema with the British Film Institute No. 000921 and a member of Cinema for All.
