What You'll Get
Caring for a newborn or toddler can often mean giving up old hobbies, such as watching movies and naming appliances after swear words. Enjoy former pastimes with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a Reel Babies movie package at Empire Theatres (a $15.48 value). This Groupon is valid at locations in Halifax, Dartmouth, and Sydney, and Reel Babies screenings are held every other Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. The movie package includes:
- Movie admission for one (a $9.99 value)
- Regular popcorn (a $5.49 value)
During Reel Babies movie showings, theatres transform into child-friendly arenas where new parents can enjoy recent releases while tending to tykes. Empire Theatres keeps the auditorium lights dim and lowers the volume on new films such as Our Idiot Brother, One Day, and The Debt, ensuring an environment conducive to child-care. Parents can transport their mini-me to the auditorium's "exersaucer", baby swing, and play mat, allowing young minds to expend energy otherwise spent solving Fermat's Last Theorem. Additionally, a changing table and bottle warmer ensures parents can remain in the theatre for all reunion scenes between protagonists and their coffee makers.
Parents registered as Reel Babies members can relish the opportunity to vote on upcoming films. Screenings, held every other Wednesday, furnish parents with regular opportunities to enjoy cinema without hiring a babysitter or wallpapering babies' nurseries with movie scripts. There is no limit on the amount of children a parent can bring; children three years and older, however, must pay admission.
