Baby-friendly cinemas sessions throughout Perth
How many times have you missed out on the latest blockbusters because you just couldn't find a babysitter? If you didn't already know, there are some cinemas in Perth that will fix this problem for you, and let you take your baby into the cinema.
Yep baby-friendly cinema sessions for parents and their bubs. Genius! You don't have to worry about feeding your baby, or whether or not they will cry or stink out the entire cinema with a giant poop explosion. The sessions are generally held on weekday mornings, excluding school holidays, and are usually much cheaper than the price you'll pay for regular session tickets. It's a win-win. Here are the cinemas where you will find baby-friendly sessions.
Ace Cinemas in Midland and Rockingham run the Bubs Club every Wednesday morning (excludes school holidays) and charge just $10 for tickets for parents. Ace Cinema loyalty members and Playgroup WA members get an even sweeter deal, with ticket prices just $8. That's $8 to watch the latest movies. Check the website for further details.
Event Cinemas are the most generous with their parents and babies sessions, running the Bring Your Baby screenings three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and at various times of the day. Perfect for the ever-changing nap schedules. For even cheaper ticket prices, you can buy five passes for just $40 great for a movie buff mum or dad. The screenings are held at Innaloo and Morley and for further information, see the website.
