Mommies at the movies

No need to find a babysitter................................

Parents with young babies can still catch the latest movie releases, thanks to the Vogue Theatre’s new Movies for Mommies series.

On the first Thursday of every month the movie theatre is opening for matinee screenings in both screens especially for moms and dads to attend with their children under three.

December’s movies take place today (Thursday, Dec 1) at 1 p.m. and will be Twilight: Breaking Dawn and Happy Feet 2.

“These movies are for the moms, not the kids,” said Vogue co-owner Roxana Djonlich.

“We were contacted through our Facebook page by some Fernie moms who had heard of other movie theatres having mommies’ movie screenings, and as we know there are a lot of babies in Fernie we decided to give it a try.

“You have to go expecting that it won’t be a totally silent movie theatre. There are no rules – people can nurse their babies during the screening, last month someone set up a blanket at the front of the theatre for her baby to play on, there might be kids running up and down.

“But it is a chance for moms to get out and see a movie when they otherwise wouldn’t be able to come to a regular screening.”

Djonlich added that numbers have been low for the last two months so she hopes audiences will increase in the next two months in order to allow the screenings to continue.

Movies for Mommies is at 1 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month at the Vogue Theatre in Fernie. Tickets are $5.50 per person and children under three are free. December’s screenings take place today (Thursday, Dec. 1) and are Twilight: Breaking Dawn and HappyFeet 2.
