Baby Cinema Opportunity

We're looking to start Baby Cinema Screenings here at Macrobert Arts Centre! The aim of these screenings is to give parents the opportunity to get out and socialise without the worry of their children, well, being children! These screenings are for parents or guardians and their baby (12 months and under), so there's no need to worry about disturbing others during the film. Our first Baby Cinema Screening will take place on Wed 8 Aug. Come along, watch a film and stay for an informal chat afterwards, to tell us how we can make Baby Cinema work for you.
