A list of some of the best baby-friendly cinemas and movie sessions in Perth.
Have you ever felt desperate to see the latest films at the cinema, yet don’t have a babysitter? Well, why not take your baby with you!
A number of Perth cinemas run special screenings for parents and babies. They are a great way for parents to get out and about without having the stress of finding a babysitter. Worried about your baby crying? There’s no need to be, with plenty of other parents enjoying the screening with noisy babies too. The lights are dimmed and there are change tables available either in the cinema or in the bathroom. Children under five are free to enter. As a general rule, the sessions are not screened during school holidays.
Hoyts Prams At The Pix screen every Wednesday at selected cinemas.
The Perth Crochet Club meets weekly to learn crochet, meet other Perth mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
So where can you find these special sessions?
Hoyts Prams At The Pix Hoyts Prams At The Pix is a weekly movie session for parents and babies showing on Wednesdays. The really great news, besides being able to get out of the house and enjoy a giant bucket of popcorn and a Choc-top, is the price. Tickets are only $11 per person. Bargain!
