What is a Parent and Baby screening?

Parent and Baby screenings take place twice a week at the cinema. These are special screenings for adults who wish to see the latest films on release and would like the option of bringing baby (typically under 18 months) along too. The lighting in the screen is kept slightly brighter than normal and the sound volume is reduced. Prams and buggies can be brought into the screen or left in a secure location outside the screen. All Parent & Baby screenings are rated 15A and below. Check out our Parent & Baby page for further detail.
