Dogs, wine, a good film – in the eyes of many people, things don’t get better than this combination of simple pleasures.

The joy of watching a movie with a glass of wine in your hand and a snoozing pup on your lap is usually an experience reserved for the home. But this doesn’t have to be the case.

There is, in fact, a dog-friendly movie theatre in Texas – and if that wasn’t enough of a selling point, the tickets also include unlimited wine.

A ticket for one human and one dog, including bottomless wine (or four whiskeys) for the person, costs a very reasonable $US15.

You can bring a second dog – but no more than two per person – for an extra $US5.

While the theatre doesn’t show new films, it has theme nights and one-off screenings. K9 Cinemas hosted a “Game of Thrones” viewing party on Sunday, for example.

Just as at any cinema, you can buy snacks to munch on during the film – and dog-friendly ones too.

There are a few rules to note: You (understandably) have to clean up after your pooch, and on your first visit you need to bring papers from your vet saying your four-legged friend is up to date with vaccinations.
