I’m not sure about you guys, but I kind of figured that my days of going to the movies once I added more children to the houseful were long gone. And for the most part, they were, and are. I still can’t go to the movies in the evening without some clever finagling of schedules and sitters. Yes, sitters. I need a crew for MY crew. It’s serious.
This is why I got pretty excited when an email landed in my inbox telling me about a new collaboration between TheBump.com and AMC theaters for Baby Friendly Matinees. These specialized viewings occur the first Tuesday of every month at 68 participating AMC theaters around the country.
On Tuesday, June 5th, the selection will be What To Expect When You’re Expecting and there will also be a chance for all moms and dads in attendance to win one of 5 boppy water bottles.
Each of these family friendly theaters will feature brighter lights, lower volume, stroller valets and the ability to nurse without having to leave in the middle of the movie. I’m sure we ALL know how I feel about the freedom to nurse where one sits!
If you are in Chicago, the place to check out will be AMC River East 21 – 322 E. Illinois St, Chicago Illinois at 12 noon.
