Baby friendly cinema screenings for parents/carers with babies under 12 months

Cinébabies is a weekly daytime screening of one of the current films in the programme specifically for parents/carers with babies under 12 months.

Cinébabies enables parents/carers to see the latest releases in the safe knowledge that their babies can cry, play and babble without worrying other cinema-goers. We provide a safe buggy park, nappy changing facilities and a bottle warming service. Watershed is completely accessible, with a passenger lift to the first floor.

Throughout the screening the house lights will always be on half, the volume will be reduced and whenever available the screening will have Descriptive Subtitles (see below for more details about this.)

Access: 
If the film has Audio Description / Descriptive Subtitles (we do not know this until the Film Distributor confirms it with us) the Cinébabies screening will ALWAYS be a DS screening. This ensures that the opportunity is as accessible as possible – with the added bonus that if one of the babies decides to make their presence known in the screening the growns ups won’t miss any of the action as long as they are looking at the screen!

We’ll announce if the film has Descriptive Subtitles as soon as we have confirmation of this (sometimes this can be quite late in the day). So please keep checking the Calendar to see what Access information there is. Better yet, sign up to our Accessible programme mailing list and we will email you whenever we have Descriptive Subtitled films, including Cinébabies ones.

Who can come to a Cinébabies screening?

Cinébabies is open to parents/carers accompanied by babies under 12 months – sorry but no baby no entry.

How to book for Cinébabies

You can book online or by calling Box Office on (0117) 927 5100 or in person during Box Office hours.

Buggy Parking at Cinébabies

Due to the popularity of the Cinébabies' screenings sometimes we have limited availability of space for buggy parking which can result in us having to restrict the number of buggies we can accommodate. We would highly recommend that you book your tickets in advance to ensure that you are not disappointed.

Information we need when you book

We collect a small amount of information when you book for a Cinébabies screening – we need one carers full name and the birth date of each baby. This enables us to monitor the age of the babies who must be under 12months of age.

If you have any comments, requests or ideas about Cinébabies please email cinebabies@watershed.co.uk or contact Box Office on 0117 927 5100.
