Parent & Baby screenings move to Wednesdays
Our screenings for parents and guardians of babies under one continue into November, now moving to a fortnightly Wednesday morning slot. These exclusive screenings give people the chance to catch up on the latest movies with their baby in a safe and sympathetic environment, without the worry of causing a disturbance.
The next Parent and Baby screening will be the entertaining comedy Girl Most Likely, on Wednesday 6 November at 11am. The film sees Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) playing Imogene, a failed New York playwright awkwardly navigating the transition from next big thing to last year’s news, after an elaborately faked suicide attempt results in her humiliating return to the care of her mother Zelda (Annette Bening). Matt Dillon appears as Zelda’s self-deluded boyfriend.
A fortnight later, on Wednesday 20 November at 11am, the critically-acclaimed Philomena will be shown as a Parent and Baby screening. Judi Dench is being tipped for an Oscar for her performance as a mother searching for her illegitimate son, taken from her when she served in one of Ireland’s most notorious convents in the 1950s. Stephen Frears, whose successes include The Queen, draws remarkable performances from both Dench and co-star Steve Coogan, whose earthy chemistry, coupled with a sharp and very funny script (part-penned by Coogan), make this film a true delight.
Tickets for the parent/carer and baby screenings are £6.50, with the baby (aged under one year old) going free. Only parents or carers with babies will be admitted to these screenings.
