Celebrate National Hot Dog Day with Special Edition “Wiener-Dog” Hot Dogs at Picturehouse Central

14 July 2016

On Thursday 14 July, Picturehouse Central on Shaftesbury Avenue will launch a “Wiener-Dog” hot dog stand to celebrate National Hot Dog Day as well as the upcoming release of Todd Solondz’ Wiener-Dog which is in cinemas from 12 August. The hot dog stand will be stationed at Picturehouse Central on Thursday 14th July and every weekend until the film’s release.

Wiener-Dog tells several stories featuring people who find their life inspired or changed by one particular dachshund, who seems to be spreading a certain kind of comfort and joy. Man’s best friend starts out teaching a young boy some contorted life lessons before being taken in by a compassionate vet tech named Dawn Wiener (Greta Gerwig). Dawn reunites with someone from her past and sets off on a road trip picking up some depressed mariachis along the way. Wiener-Dog then encounters a floundering film professor (Danny DeVito), as well as an embittered elderly woman (Ellen Burstyn) and her needy granddaughter (Zosia Mamet) – all longing for something more.




Wiener-Dog is written and directed by Todd Solondz (Happiness, Storytelling, Life During Wartime), produced by Megan Ellison (Zero Dark Thirty, Her, American Hustle) and Christine Vachon (I’m Not There, Boys Don’t Cry) and stars Tracy Letts (The Big Short), Julie Delpy (Before Sunrise), Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha, Mistress America), Kieran Culkin (Igby Goes Down), Danny DeVito (Taxi, Twins, Batman Returns), Ellen Burstyn (The Exorcist, Requiem for a Dream) and Zosia Mamet (Girls).
