We've taken Isobel a few times - first took her about a year ago - and she loves it. We've taken her to the theatre as well (only pantomime, The Gruffalo's Child and Ben and Holly). With the cinema, our local cineworld does weekend tickets for 90p a person if you get them online so we did that as it wouldn't have been too much waste if she didn't stay. She doesn't budge though!! Ben took her to see Tinkerbell and The Secret of the Wings (I think that's what its called - something with fairies!!!) a couple of weeks ago. I know my cousin's little girl is 3 months younger and doesn't sit very still but Izzy's fine. Take her!!

Odeon do a 'newbies' screeening in the week for parents and young children, and they also do a kids club on a weekend. It may be better taking her then as it will all be children so it wont matter so much if she isnt quiet.

I have thought about taking Sam but I doubt she will sit still. Although she hassat and watched Toy story, Lion King, and garfield on DVD but isnt interested in other films.

I think it is totally down to how you think your child will be.

I couldn't get my LO to sit still long enough to watch the adverts nevermind a film so I veered well away from the cinema until I thought she would sit still long enough. We actually went for the first time in March to see The Croods and she was great! Loved every min and sat and actually watched the film (just over an hour or so long).

She did get bored towards the end and was up on her feet but I'd sat us on the end seats against the wall so she couldn't escape and during the day the kids movies are pretty quiet (unless yuo go during the school holidays).

Well I took her and I was pleasantly surprised! She doesnt have the nickname miss wiggle for no reason but she sat and watched the whole film. It was a brilliant film too, I hate films usually but really enjoyed it. We had one blip when the lights went down she got a bit scared and she sat on my lap but other than that she really enjoyed it. I cant wait to take her to monsters university next month as shes mad on monsters inc.

Glad I took her as we got a chance to have some quality time together before baby comes alomg plus it's usually my oh who gets all the fun with her was made a nice change xx

My god where do you go?? Cost me best part of 15 quid when I took my LO Shocked Shocked

I thought it was a bit steep charging £6.00 for her, shes still only a 'baby' but we were charged the full child price.

Lilly the odeon and vue do kids clubs on weekend mornings and during half term for reduced prices. It's ridiculous isn't it when it's full price. I take Shannah and Kieran fairly often to see the latest releases and last time we went to see Wreck it Ralph and I also took my niece Ruby and with 2 adults and 3 children it was £45. That was with a snack tray thingie for each of them and some popcorn for Adam and me but still! £45! I'm thinking about getting one of those cards for carers where you get free or reduced entry.

I didnt realise they do kids club kind of thing, I nearly fell over at the price for just the 2 of us to get cinema tickets......and that was before we hit the sweet/popcorn stand! A trip to the cinema just for me and my 3 year old cos the best part of 25 quid! Me and OH are debating baby number 2 at the mo and its things like this that really put us off as everything just seems so expensive!

I think two is the ideal number if you're going to have more children as mot family tickets etc are catered towards families of four. Kids are so expensive! I want to go to disney in france next year and the price is going to be outrageous even though we will probably only take 3 of them.
