Toddler Time at Picturehouse Cinema

| October 21, 2013

This week Imogen and I went to our local Picturehouse Cinema for Imogen’s first ever cinema experience (aside from the Big Scream which she went to twice with me when she was under the age of one). We went to see Rastamouse which was playing at Toddler Time. It’s a 30 minute session for toddlers and their parents or carers. I think it’s a lovely way to introduce toddlers to the big screen.

Charley, Peter and Kitty were chosen by Imogen to come to the cinema with us as she thought they’d like Rastamouse (perhaps Kitty more than the others).

There’s plenty of music, dance and singing in Rastamouse which immediately meant Imogen was a huge fan. She didn’t sit down once, choosing to stand and then dance whenever the music played.

Linking up with the lovely bloggers at What’s the Story? and Magic Moments.

    Thats a brilliant idea and so good for little kids. I think 30 mins is about perfect to rest mummy feet and let kids do their boogying 🙂

  2. How sweet! I hope they do something like this near me as it would be lovely to take my son to when he’s a bit older. It’s great that they can get up and move about too – sounds like Imogen had a brilliant time!

    What a really fantastic idea of the cinema to provide short sessions for toddlers. I would love to take my little man to something similar.

    thanks for linking up with #MagicMoments

    What a lovely idea Lydia, Imogen must have absolutely loved her first cinema trip. We’ve not taken POD yet although she’s done the theatre a couple of times. Sounds like Imogen and her friends loved Rastamouse! Thank you for sharing with #whatsthestory

    How cute! We just took Ben and Chloe to the cinema for the first time this weekend and they loved it!

    Half an hour Toddler Time is such a good idea! I’ve taken Bob twice. The first time she sat through all of Despicable Me 2 but the second time the film didn’t keep her attention for long. I can’t even remember what it was called, that’s how good it was. :o) x
