For some reason our babes in arms session is also full of old people too, it can't just be coincidence. The thing is these people don't even know its babes in arms, they need to put a big sign up at the entrance or something.
If I went to a mums and bubs session, I'd be more interested in looking at the bubs than the movie. *clucky* I didn't know they were cheaper.
Also, what age is still considered a "bub"? When I was a teenager, I saw The Lion King at the movies & there were quite a few 2 & 3 yr olds there. Nobody seemed that bothered, even though many of them were crying, squealing, running around etc. (Of course it was a kids' movie!) Are kids now banned from other sessions? What about people talking through movies, or laughing too loud? People are far too precious if you ask me. If you want to watch a movie in complete silence, wait for DVD!
Good on you for saying something. It would be easier for her to move or (lightbulb moment here) even have just gone to a different session.

What a rude woman. Some people really have a nerve saying things like this. I considering taking DS2 next week to a babes in arms session. They also provide cake and coffee for I think $8.50 including the ticket
"I'm sorry, is my baby at a mums and bubs showing interrupting you? Well, there's the door. Don't let it hit you on the @rse on the way out".
What a snotty old moo-er. I'd be furious! I've got no problems with non-parents being at one of those showings but they have to accept that it's under the condition that there will be BABIES there. That's the point of it.
you were very classy not to let fly at the silly old cow.
im afraid i would have given her a mouthful..or i would have put my DD over my shoulder and tried to get her to projectile vomit over the old bat.
I think the staff should strongly discourage anybody without a baby/child from buying a ticket into these sessions because it's quite obvious that the non child/baby accompanying patron is going to be annoyed at the disruptions/noise etc that is expected in a 'Babes in arms' movie session.
If I was selling the tickets, I would say 'sure, you can go in, but you have to pay full price for a ticket' and hopefully that would dissuade them enough.
Kudos for rightfully saying something OP, I know I would have as well.
There's an idea. Tickets should only be cheap if you are actually bringing in a baby or child. Stops all the oldies going in and whinging about it.
But, I think the cinema probably wants to make as much money as they can so I doubt they would do that. They'll do whatever sells the most tickets. But I don't really care anyway, if someone else goes in to a mums and bubs session and whinges about the babies, they are just making themselves look stupid. And I would probably laugh at them.
