What's the single biggest thing that stops you from taking the whole family to the movies more often?
Did I hear you say THE COST? That would be the correct answer.
For us, we save movie treats for the school holidays and always make sure we re-mortgage the house to pay for the ticket, popcorn and super-sized drink combos peddled by the cinema chains.
But it's not all doom and gloom. Sydney Mums Group is always on the look out for those exceptions to the rule and we make sure we pass them onto our readers.

You shouldn't have too far to go for your Disney movie fix.
Often animated movies are pitched at slightly older children and/or adults, and it can be hard to find one that will really captivate your wriggly toddler or pre-schooler's attention.
The great thing about this selection of films is they are fairly and squarely for young children, so if you've not yet taken your 3 - 4 year old to the movies, this could be your perfect opportunity. Generally the session times start around 10/10.30am, when your little ones are still fresh for the day.
EVENT Cinemas also offer free booster seats for the kids, so remember to pick one up on your way into the theatre.
