Every Wednesday, the early matinee screening is intended for moms (and dads too!) with small babies in tow. These Going Gaga screenings feature one of the films that we are currently showing in the evenings, but with theater conditions adjusted to provide you with a more baby-friendly movie theater environment.

Lights will be dimmed so that you can find your way in and out of the theater as needed, and the volume level will be turned down so as not to damage your baby's more sensitive eardrums. We'll even provide you with a changing table in our lobby.

Ticket prices for parents are listed here. Babies come free! The box office opens 30 minutes before the first screening of the day.
