So in this post I’ll talk about baby cinema as well as how to make your cinema trips as cheap as possible!
Did you know you can take your baby to the cinema? Yes you read correctly. These are relaxed screenings where the lights are up a little and the sound isn’t as loud as a normal screening. Sounds good right?
So I know some of your are probably thinking “why on earth would I take a baby to the cinema?” This is one of these things that can be for you too. I don’t know about you but ever since becoming a mother I do find it hard to do certain things like go to the cinema. Why? Because I pretty much have my daughter with my 90% of the time (I need to let go a bit lol I know it’s a process) the other 10% she’s with family.
I was overjoyed when I found out about these baby screenings as I LOVE the cinema!
The baby screenings can be quiet. It all depends on the time and days you go. They can also be very noisy lol remember you’re going to be surrounded by babies but don’t let that put you off. It’s still an enjoyable experience.
Below are the cinemas I’m aware of that do baby screenings. All you have to do is find the ones nearest to you.
Be aware that a lot of the screenings take place in the mornings and there’s a few in the afternoon too.
Normal cinema ticket prices unless stated otherwise.
They usually have a designated area where you can park your buggys too.
Note that most cinemas allow little ones under 18 months in free of charge

Cinema doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg!
Groupon & Wowcher – both sites often have deals where you can get cheap tickets to the cinema. I’ve seen both Vue and Odeon in the past. It’s worth signing up to their newsletters so you can get those deals as they seem to sell out quickly!
Anyone who purchases a qualifying product through comparethemarket.com will be eligible to receive a year’s worth of 2 for 1 tickets to use once on either a Tuesday or Wednesday each week at participating cinemas. You can get travel insurance for as little as £4. It will save you lots so it’s worth looking in to!
You can download the app which will reveal your unique code each week. It will look like this
Ps I won’t be using this code so whoever reads this is more than welcome to use it 😊
Cinema chains such as Vue, Cineworld and Odeon have special screenings on Saturday and Sunday mornings that allow a child and an adult to see a particular movie from just £2.50!
Hold – The app
Hold is an app which gives you free stuff for not using your phone! You get 10 points for every 20 minutes you don’t use your phone. I have been using this app for a few days and I’ve used my points to get cinema tickets to Vue for just £4.99 PLUS FREE popcorn! It’s a great app and it’s pretty straight forward. Turn it on and don’t use your phone 😀
