Winter can be a hard slog for parents with preschool children. Especially when the weather is woeful and clear days seem like a forgotten memory, much like the last strain of your sanity.
So when the kids have caught the bonkers bug and start going all spiderpig on the roof, it's time to get out of the house.
But where to go. I for one have frequently dismissed the thought of taking my child to the flicks for fear of a jaffa sconning ambush by disgruntled patrons merely reacting to what ever tomfoolery my son may unleash on them in the dark!
Luckily Hoyts is here to kindly accommodate all strains of bonkeritis and other such ailments that drive everyone a little stir crazy when vitamin D is void.
Hoyts Junior is specifically dedicated to preschoolers aged from three to six years of age. Families can enjoy a session at the cinemas without donning disguises of fake noses, dark shades or capes. No. Gone are the days of slinking down into the chair waiting for the last person to go, then like a guilty pack of chicken-nibbling foxes skulk in and behind movie promo posters to reach the car unseen and avoid further embarrassment.
So take advantage every Saturday and Sunday morning and let your sweet angels enjoy all their favourites up on the big screen. There is a flat fee of $7 for all so the price is definitely right!
