Re: Toddlers in the movies
We're on the other side of the country, but with a couple of big towns nearby (Geneva/Lausanne) and I'm afraid nothing to report re parent/kid screenings for the very young (or even parent/baby screenings).
Everyone's toddler is different, and whereas some may be able to concentrate on a screen and sit still for 90mins, others would find it overwhelming. I guess that's why they have the age cut-off.
With cinema tickets so expensive, many parents just wait for kids' films to come out on DVD...
Maybe if there were enough parents interested, you could suggest a Kids' Club-type arrangement with a local cinema, where they show a suitable film with the lights low but not off, and where a certain amount of running around and playing might be tolerated??
