    Default Allowing non parents into babes in arms cinema sessions

    I decided to take 8MO DD to the movies this morning as there are now babes in arms sessions several times a week and its nice to be able to catch up on mindless hollywood tripe every now and then like we used to pre-baby....I also like the idea of going to a babes in arms session so if DD decides to be very very noisy (as is usually the case) or I need to feed no-one would bat an eyelid.

    Anyway, I was in line getting my ticket and noticed there were lots of older people going to the session and the cashier was politely explaining to them all that the session was half price because it was babes in arms and there would be mothers with little ones blahblahblah....anyway they all agreed it was fine and went to this instead of the full price session 15min later.

    10 minutes into the film and sure enough DD decided she wanted to bounce on my lap. I thought no probs lets get some of that energy out of her so she falls asleep for the rest of the session. She wasn't being flown through the air (just bounced on my lap) After a minute or two of bouncing, the older lady sitting behind me said 'put that baby down I can't see the movie'.....I was a bit shocked for a minute and responded 'how about you go and move to one of the other seats (as about 85% of the cinema was empty)....to which I got quiet a few tut tut tuts....

    I'm a bit peeved that this happened and wanted to get some opinions on this. Personally I am all for a shared cinema experience - why should it just be bubs and mums (or carers) but how dare someone expect to enjoy their movie without interruption after signing up knowing full well that is the entire point of these sessions?

    You were in the right. The old bitty was wrong to say anything to you in the first place.

    Am I so impressed that you responded! I would have been dumbstruck.
    You are completely in the right. I they wanted to be cheap they did so on the condition of being interrupted and disturbed. Hope it didn't ruin the movie for you.

    I have noticed a lot of older people in the babes in arms sessions, I always wondered why - of course! The price! Silly old bat, good on you for saying something to her.

    Come on what did she expect. Really. A session for mums who have babies... and expect a baby to be silent.

    I would in all honesty, probably wait for her to whinge again and then make a really loud phone call to anyone I could get hold of laughing about someone who didn't get the idea of a babes in arms session.

    She was just rude.
