Movies for Mommies, Canada’s original mommy-baby movie event, will run at the Hollywood 3 Cinema in Pitt Meadows every other Thursday morning, starting Nov. 15.
New parents and their babies are welcomed into an infant-friendly environment where they can escape into a current movie, nurse in the dark, and network with other new parents (caregivers and grandparents are welcome too).
With the help of Hollywood owner Rahim Manji, Movies for Mommies aims to create a community event for parents with young babies.
All movies run with reduced sound to protect the sensitivity of baby’s ears. The theatre is also equipped with change tables that have complimentary wipes and diapers.
“I love planning these movie events for new moms,” said Movies for Mommies B.C. owner Laura Grady.
“What better way to feel a little normal again than by packing up the baby and watching a flick on the big screen? I am a movie buff and the thought of missing out on popcorn and trips to the theatre just wouldn’t do. With Movies for Mommies us moms can stay up-to-date on the latest releases and best of all, we can save the babysitter for date-night.”
The Movies for Mommies Pitt Meadows launch will include lots of giveaways and prizes. Doors open at 10:30am. Parents can come early for a free baby-photo-shoot from a local photographer. Movie starts at 11:30pm. Tickets are $8 (includes popcorn and a drink). Babies are free.
