Just when we thought we'd seen every possible location for a pop-up cinema in London, they go and put one up in the middle of Battersea Dogs' Home.

For two nights only, the animal rescue centre hosts screenings of Homeward Bound, the story of golden retriever Shadow, American bulldog Chance and cat Sassy in the Californian wilderness. The screenings coincide with the film's 25th anniversary (which makes us feel very old).

The rescue centre itself will be closed during the films — screenings take place in the railway arches nearby —  but some of the more sociable dogs are being allowed to stay up late to mingle with visitors. Pizza and drinks are available to buy on site (no sharing with the dogs, no matter how cute).

Battersea Lates takes place 24 and 25 October 2018. Tickets are £12 and need to be booked in advance. Over 18s only.
