Cineplex Odeon’s theatre in north London, Silver City, is once again offering their Family Favourites promotion for Saturday mornings this spring. At 11:00am every Saturday, you can bring the kids to the theatre for a variety of older movies, animated or live-action that are geared toward the whole family. These movies could be classics that your kids have never seen, little known box office blips or blockbuster faves from years past. Whatever is playing – it’s a good deal for you!

As of January 2015, admission is $2.99 per person. A portion of each ticket will now be going toward supporting Free The Children.

Stars and Strollers

Oh, Mama. Remember those days when you would see all of the new releases? When you watched the Oscars and actually had an opinion on who won? Has it been a while since you went out in public during the day by choice? How about since you went to the movie theatre? If these questions have you sobbing into a dirty receiving blanket, then Stars and Strollers might just be your thing!

At both Silver City Masonville and Cineplex Westmount, you can go to a matinee movie every week – WITH your baby! The best part is, you’ll be there with other moms, just like you. Baby crying? No big deal. Hungry baby? Go ahead and feed them! Dirty diaper? There’s a change table. They even have stroller parking! The lights will be dimmed so you won’t have to trip over diaper bags if you need to get up and the volume will be just a bit lower than usual so that the noise won’t startle your little one.

Every week, both theatres will have two current movies each for you to choose from. This week, for example, you can choose from Cinderella and Run All Night at Silver City or Home and Insurgent at Westmount. Shows are Wednesdays at 1:00pm. Parents who go with their baby (under 2 years of age) will receive $2.00 off their regular admission. You don’t have to have a kid to go – the theatres are still open to everyone! However, kick back and relax, because anyone who is there knows that this viewing is all about the Moms.

And who knows, maybe next March you’ll actually know some of the nominated movies! ;)
