Many parents think that having a new baby at home means saying goodbye to first run movies, at least for a little while. After all, no one wants to be that person! You know, the one with the screaming baby annoying all the other patrons in a busy theatre.
Luckily the folks at Cineplex Odeon have come up with a solution. Their weekly Stars and Strollers offerings allow parents to view a current movie in a baby-friendly environment. The showings take place on weekday afternoons and feature lower volumes and slightly brighter lighting than a standard multiplex movie. And they even set up change tables (with free diapers!) just outside the theatre so you don’t need to go all the way to the bathroom to do a diaper change and risk missing an important plot point.
Stars and Strollers is offered in theatres all over Canada. In Edmonton, it is available at three locations:
- Scotiabank Theatre West Edmonton Mall (Wednesdays at 1pm)
- Cineplex Odeon North Edmonton (Wednesdays at 1pm)
- Cineplex Odeon South Edmonton (Thursdays at 1pm)
Admission: $10.75 per adult (babies are free)
Location: Cineplex Odeon theatres in West Edmonton, North Edmonton, and South Edmonton
