Baby’s First Movie: AMC Bring Your Baby Tuesdays


When my kids were babies , I took full advantage of local movie theaters’ special showings for parents with babes. Lucky for you, the AMC Promenade 16 in Woodland Hills has that feature now – Bring Your Baby Matinees, at noon on the first Tuesday of every month, which is today!

Today’s movie is “The Host,” based on a novel by Stephenie Meyer (author of the Twilight series), starring Saorsie Ronan as a holdout in the worldwide struggle against a race of aliens that takes over human bodies and erases their memories. I loved the book, and I plan to see the movie. But since I no longer have an infant, I’ll be going at night with my girlfriends. I leave this wonderful opportunity to you, my friends with babes. They keep the lights on (low) so you can see what you’re doing, and the volume turned down so you don’t hurt baby’s ears. In my experience, you could park your stroller in the aisle too, but check with management to make sure that’s okay.

Plus, you can feel good about having some fun! Part of your ticket purchase will go to the Will Rogers Institute, a nonprofit that provides much-needed equipment to neonatal intensive care units and promotes research, treatment and education on cardio-pulmonary diseases.

The ticket price at noon is only $6.00. A great way to get out of the house and have a little fun with baby in tow. Thanks to my friends from 510families  and Indy With Kids for the heads up!
