The theatre lights are dimmed but not dark so you have enough light to be able to feed your little one a bottle or change their nappy, and the volume is slightly lower than usual too, to make it easier for babies to sleep and not startle at loud sounds. However, if you do have a noisy baby, you're surrounded by other mums with babies too, so you don't need to worry about upsetting anyone.
You need to check the times available for the movie you want to see but mums and bubs sessions are held at most cinemas at least once a week (except during school holidays), and there are some very funny movies coming out in the next few months, including Absolutely Fabulous, Bad Moms and Bridget Jones' Baby.
Session times vary between mid-morning and midday depending on the cinema (perfect timing for mums who have to drop older kids off to childcare or school and be finished in time for afternoon pick up). Best of all, the price is much cheaper than a regular ticket (between $8 and $11), making it an affordable weekday activity for mums on a budget.
