Westown Movies will soon be offering daytime screenings of first run movies DESIGNED for parents and babies to attend. Now you can enjoy a movie with your baby, and you don’t have to worry about upsetting anyone else.
The concept: (source: Washington Post) Theaters offer daytime screenings of first-run movies and encourage parents and babies to attend. The lights are kept on to facilitate feedings and infant care during the show, and the volume is lowered so as not to startle or over-stimulate little ones. Nursing and bottle feeding during the movie are welcome. And the best yet for new parents? Crying and other baby sounds will earn you sympathetic, rather than annoyed, looks from other parent patrons.
This is a great way for parents to keep up with the latest movies, WITHOUT having to hire a sitter, or trust the in-laws to watch your little ones for a few hours.
More information coming soon… we hope to have our first Movies & Babies feature in February!
