Baby friendly movie theaters near me

DIRECTORY

There are many things we sacrifice as new parents: a good night’s sleep, adult conversation, sometimes even showering. But thanks to “Crybaby Matinees,” catching the latest movie doesn’t have to be added to the list. At these midday screenings, you can bring your baby along with you! Hang with other parents, let your little one sleep (or cry) and enjoy the show. Read on for details on two special programs now offered at New Jersey theaters.

Bring Your Baby Matinees

AMC Theatres, in partnership with The Bump, recently launched “Bring Your Baby Matinees” at select AMC locations across the country. On the first Tuesday of every month at noon, new movies will be screened just for parents and their babies, providing a stress-free, baby-friendly experience. Relax, socialize with other parents and treat yourself to the latest flick. There is plenty of parking for strollers, moms are welcome to breastfeed and of course, crying babies are allowed. You’ll finally get the chance to enjoy a movie without fear of being “shushed!”

Mark your calendar for What to Expect When You’re Expecting on Tuesday, June 5th. Inspired by the bestselling book, this star-studded comedy follows five couples as they experience the joys and challenges of parenthood. Or maybe ’80s hair bands are more your speed? Then stay tuned for Rock of Ages on July 3rd, starring Tom Cruise as aging rocker Stacee Jaxx and featuring all the classic ’80s tunes you love!

Bring Your Baby Matinees take place at nine theaters throughout New Jersey (Cherry Hill, Clifton, Eatontown, Elizabeth, Freehold, Hamilton, New Brunswick, Paramus, Rockaway), as well as two New York City locations (Kips Bay and Lincoln Square). Please visit the AMC website to purchase tickets in advance. Tickets are full price for adults and admission is free for the babies.

Baby Pictures

“Baby Pictures” is a similar program presented by Showcase Cinemas – join them for the newest releases at select theaters each month. The matinees feature dimmed lighting for easier childcare, lowered volume to protect sensitive baby ears, diaper changing stations and a designated stroller check-in area. Moms love having the run of the theater and bonding with other parents in a fun, laid-back environment. Let your baby bounce on your lap or crawl around – no one will mind a bit.

The majority of participating locations are in New England but there is one NJ theater on the list: Edgewater Multiplex Cinemas. Prior features include chick-flick The Vow, as well as The Hunger Games, and next up is What to Expect When You’re Expecting on 5/24 at 12pm. Please check the Showcase Cinemas website for other available dates. The best part? Admission for Baby Pictures is discounted to only $6. Cha-ching!

Places for parents with babies to go to the movies

When you first become a parent, helpful friends, parenting books and Web sites list certain activities as de rigueur while you’re on maternity leave or beginning your stint at home. In addition to taking bonding-filled parent/child yoga classes and finding a moms or dads group, another oft-recommended outing is a matinee movie screening especially for parents and babies.

Locating a bring-your-baby yoga class is relatively easy. Finding a group of fellow parents sharing children the same age, interests and a Zip code is challenging but rewarding.

But try and track down a theater offering regular movie screenings for parents and babies and you’ll become convinced that these events are an elaborate urban legend.

The concept: Theaters offer daytime screenings of first-run movies and encourage parents and babies to attend. The lights are kept on to facilitate feedings and infant care during the show, and the volume is lowered so as not to startle or over-stimulate little ones. Nursing and bottle feeding during the movie are welcome. And the best yet for new parents? Crying and other baby sounds will earn you sympathetic, rather than annoyed, looks from other parent patrons.

The programs took off in the early 2000s in major metro areas and sported punny names like Rattle and Reel, Reel Moms and Cry Babies. Washington was home to several of these programs. (In 2003, The Washington Post covered a Reel Moms screening at the Rio Cinema in Gaithersburg that was so popular that at least 140 Gracos and Peg-Peregos were lined up in the designated stroller parking.)

Unfortunately, several local theaters that offered the parent-and-baby movies have discontinued the practice. Other theaters offer regular baby-friendly show times, but the programs are not listed on their Web sites or well publicized.

Kristin Gehlhaus, a self-proclaimed “big movie person” from Silver Spring and a mother of two, attended the weekly baby-friendly movie screenings at the Regal Majestic in Silver Spring most Wednesday mornings during her maternity leaves in 2005 and 2008.

“The year my daughter was born, I saw almost all of the Academy Award-nominees for best picture,” she said. “When you have a young baby, this is one of your only chances to see a first-run film right on the big screen.”

Gehlhaus was surprised that the screenings received such little hype. “They don’t advertise the shows very much, and I remember attending a show once and my baby, my aunt and I were the only people in the entire theater,” she said. “That is strange to me; it’s such an ideal opportunity for a parent.”

Thankfully, several theaters and chains are bringing back or revamping their movie-and-baby programs, while others recently have started such series for the first time.

The Rio in Gaithersburg, now a member of the AMC Theatre chain, participates in Bring Your Baby Matinees program that is sponsored by the pregnancy Web site thebump.com on the first Tuesday of the month. AMC locations in Georgetown, Alexandria, Tysons Corner and Woodbridge are also taking part.

The American Film Institute’s Silver Theatre and Cultural Center began Silver Babies in 2011. The program features screenings of two matinees in a baby-friendly environment every other Friday.

“This is a program we have always wanted to offer for patrons. We thought we were kind of late to the game, but it worked out. We’ve enjoyed doing it,” said Todd Hitchcock, the theater’s director of programming. “Attendance has been good; we get a lot of positive feedback from parents.”

Parents with babies may want to take advantage of these events while their children are less than a year old. The movie selections are chosen for parents (think “Braveheart” rather than “Brave”), so once children begin paying attention to the action on-screen the content may not be appropriate.

And while toddlers are welcome at such showings, they may have other ideas. Jill Berry, a Woodbine mother who writes the parenting blog Musings From Me, learned that her 18-month-old son was not interested in a movie date with Mom.

“I guess I missed the bit where you take the infant in the sling who just nurses and falls asleep and you can enjoy the show,” Berry said. “My son sat there and ate his healthy snack, then we moved on to the M&Ms, and then he just wanted to walk up and down the stairs in the back. We lasted all of 40 minutes.”

Although toddlers may balk, one interest group that is welcome and warming to the “movie moms” clubs is fathers. “We are seeing a lot of dads, which is great,” Hitchcock said.

McFadden is a freelance writer and founded her blog, A Parent in Silver Spring, in 2008.

SYNOPSIS

Elastigirl springs into action to save the day, while Mr. Incredible faces his greatest challenge yet — taking care of the problems of his three children.

Starring Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Samuel L. Jackson, Brad Bird, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Jonathan Banks, Sophia Bush, and Isabella Rossellini, Brad Bird‘s Incredibles 2 opens June 15th.

In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.

Written and directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles,” “Tomorrowland”) and Nicole Paradis Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer), Disney•Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” busts into theaters on June 15, 2018.

These Theaters Are Now Offering Sensory-Friendly Movies

If you have children with sensory disorders, autism or any other special needs, you’re most likely aware that a trip to the movies might not be their favorite thing. The dark room, the loud noise — such an outing can more be unpleasant than it is fun.

That’s why AMC Theatres and Regal Cinemas are now offering sensory-friendly movie options. Your kids can enjoy a trip to the movies without the negative stimuli they might experience if they were to see a regular movie at the theater.

AMC has partnered with the Autism Society to offer the sensory-friendly movies. At the showings, the lights will be turned up while the sound is turned down. Kids can even get up, dance, walk, shout or sing right in the theater. The program will offer family-friendly movies on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. If you have an older child or are an adult with sensory issues, AMC will also show sensory-friendly films for a more mature audience on Tuesday evenings.

Not all AMC theaters are participating in the program, so be sure to check your local theater for showtimes and ticket prices, if available.

Regal Theatres

Regal Cinemas’ My Way Matinee program is similar to AMC’s, allowing everyone to experience a trip to the movies. The lights will be turned up and the volume turned down, which makes it a safe space where guests can express themselves by singing, crying, dancing, talking, or otherwise expressing themselves.

All My Way Matinee screenings begin at 10:30 a.m. on the second and fourth Saturday of the month at participating theaters for a discounted ticket price. Check listings at your local Regal Cinema and contact individual locations to find out how much ticket prices are there.

Sensory Friendly Movie Theatres Around Tampa Bay

We love all things family-friendly and Sensory Friendly Movies is a great way to help all families in the Tampa Bay area enjoy going to the movies.

The concept of Sensory Friendly Films started in 2007, when a Mom visited a theater chain with her daughter and was asked to leave because her daughter began to flap her hands, dance, twirl and jump up and down the theater.

The Mother then asked an AMC movie theater manager (not the original theater) if they would be willing to set up a special screening for children on the autism spectrum. The idea took off and since then, theaters across the country has embraced Sensory Friendly films.

Sensory Films are shown with the lights up and the volume lowered. Children are free to move around, talk, sing or even dance in the aisles during the movie. However, Sensory Friendly films are not restricted just for those on the Autism spectrum.

If Sensory Friendly movie options seems appropriate for your family, please check out the theatres listed below for their offerings.

    Weather

    If we need to postpone due to inclement weather, we will communicate through Eventbrite ( Please RSVP) and post on the Dix Park Facebook Page.

    Location

    The movie will be in Flowers Field. The best park entrances to use are Hunt Drive off of Western Boulevard or Blair Drive off of Centennial Parkway. The address of the field is roughly 2105 Umstead Drive for those who use GPS. Look for signs along Umstead Drive.

    Parking

    Parking is available in the four parking lots off of Umstead Drive. Due to the high volume of people and limited parking, please carpool if possible. Do not park in the grass – driving on tree roots damages the trees and we want to keep the 150 year old oaks around for as long as possible!

    Food, Restrooms and Dogs

    While we encourage you to enjoy the food trucks, you may also bring your own food and beverages. Beer and wine are permitted, but please be responsible! Bring a blanket or low beach chairs to sit on, so that you don’t obstruct the view for others. A flashlight or a flashlight app on your cell phone may come in handy. There is no drinking water available at the park, and we only have port-a-johns available, so come prepared. Leashed, friendly dogs are welcome, but please use your best judgement to determine if your pooch will enjoy the show!
