Saturday morning movies are coming to The Picture House in Uckfield especially for children, and there are to be Bring the Baby screenings too.
The Picture House is launching its Saturday Morning Movies on Saturday, October 12, at 10.30am with tickets available at £3 each (an extra £1.50 for 3D).
Screenings will include recent blockbusters and classic family favourites, all rated either U or PG, and children aged over eight will be allowed to stay on their own, giving carers a break. Those aged under eight must be accompanied by an adult.
The first film to be shown will be Monsters University and also coming are Despicable Me 2, Smurfs 2 and Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters.
Bring the Baby screenings will be held every Wednesday morning at 10.45am starting on October 16.
The latest film releases will be shown especially for parents and guardians with babies under one year old.
Lighting will be brighter than normal and the volume reduce in order to create “a calming environment” for your baby.
The aim is for “you to sit back, relax and enjoy the film with your precious little one in your arms”. Tickets are priced as normal and your baby’s ticket is, of course, free.
The season opens with the comedy drama Le Week-End, which follows a British couple (Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan) who try to rejuvenate their marriage by returning to Paris decades after their honeymoon.
Birthday Party Fun is also to be offered at The Picture House with birthday party packages available.
If you tell staff on arrival that it’s your birthday they will read your name out to get everybody celebrating. If you email in advance you could even get a picture of the birthday boy or girl up on the big screen.
There are two packages to choose from, Film and Kiosk Treats and Film and Birthday Meal. Both include the ticket price and some refreshments. Leaflets are available at the cinema.
