If you have an opportunity to leave the kids with a sitter, you can laugh along with Mila Kunia and her band of Bad Moms or check out the latest film in the Bridget Jones franchise.
At Bassendean, cinema sessions will be held at BIC Reserve, at the corner of Guildford Road and Wilson Street, with sessions starting from 8th December and running until 25th March.
