Cry Babies

No one enjoys having crying babies ruin their cinematic experience, so it’s no surprise that many families with little ones skip the movie-going experience altogether. But the Movies & Me program, beginning next week at Camino Real Theaters, promises to change that. The brainchild of Metropolitan Theatres President David Corwin, who has two daughters, Movies & Me – which will occur the first Tuesday of every month at 10 a.m. – allows parents with infants to bring their babies to the theater without having to worry whether they’ll disrupt other filmgoers. Plus, according to Corwin, many parents miss out on movie-going because the cost of babysitters is too high. This program ensures that new parents won’t miss out on Hollywood’s latest – and all for the matinee price.
