So over the cold, wet winter months, we’ve started taking our daughters to the cinema at the weekend for special children’s screenings of big movies. Usually a few months after they first get released.
Previously we’ve always been worried that our three year old wouldn’t have the patience to sit still through an entire movie, but at £3 a ticket it was worth trying. She and her five year old sister both really enjoyed it. So far we’ve seen Despicable me 3, the re-release of frozen, with Olaf’s christmas adventure and Paddington 2. All the films were great fun and at £12 for a family it’s a cheap morning out.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised at the quality of the films that they are showing and how close they have been added as a kids movie to their actual release date. I believe the current film doing the rounds is Ferdinand and that was only in the cinemas just before christmas.
The children love going as it’s a different experience for them than watching a film at home and they love getting popcorn and other treat (we usually sneak them in from the supermarket).
If you want to see what children’s films are showing at your local cinema then you can use the following links. These films are usually shown at around 10am at the weekend, but they also often have showings during school holidays.
I would definitely recommend the cinema as a great day out on a cold, wet weekend morning.
