A list of baby friendly cinema sessions, just before the school holidays hit.
With the school holidays taking place in April, the baby friendly movie sessions will also take a break once the term finishes. You can still catch a couple of sessions in the first two weeks of April during term time, however.
If you weren’t aware, Perth has a number of baby-friendly cinema sessions. You can take your baby or toddler to the cinema, and you don’t have to worry about them crying, acting up or running around like crazy little people! You can see the latest blockbusters with your baby in tow. The sound is generally a little quieter than usual and the lights are dimmed for comfort. The price of tickets are usually cheaper and kids under 5 are free!
Here are some tips before you go:
You may not be able to take your pram into the movie theatre, so check with the cinema before you go.
It’s also a good idea to double check that the mums and babies session is actually on before you arrive.
If you do turn up and are told it’s not a mum and baby session, ask to speak to the manager! I turned up to an advertised mums and babies session, only to be told it wasn’t on and charged the full price! After a short chat to the manager and a refund of the difference, off I went into the cinema with my baby.
Grab some popcorn and enjoy!

Though unimpressed with being surrounded by “silly” jocks, it’s not long until Cory embraces her roommates hospitality. It’s also not long until the school’s superstar player, Edie (Tiarnie Coupland, Worst Year Of My Life, Again!, Love Child) begins to make life difficult for Cory.
