The Name the Year of the Dog Contest

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We're about to see the new Molly Shannon movie and we're very excited because a) its gonna be free and b) we miss Molly Shannon. We know nothing about this film except it was written by the dude who brought us School of Rock and The Good Girl. And judging from the web site, it looks like it's about dogs. Fine.

We'd like to share this excitement with you and the nice people from Year of the Dog have allowed us to give a pair of tickets away to a random LAist reader. All you have to do is name that dog up there in that picture and you might win.

Just put your real email address in the comment below when you name the pooch and on Thursday we will announce the winner. Deadline is Wednesday at 4:20pm. The winner can pick between a screening on 4/10 screening at the ArcLight, or a 4/12 screening at AMC Century City.
