Host an unforgettable kids birthday party at Bryn Mawr Film Institute! Watch your child’s favorite movie in a private theater with all of your guests. After the lights go up, enjoy a post-movie bash in our on-site party space. This unique birthday experience will stay with your child—and their friends—long after the credits roll. (And it’s enjoyable for parents, too!)
You provide the movie on Blu-ray, DVD, or streaming service, with all the food and fixings for your party. We provide the giant screen, cozy seats, movie magic, post-screen party venue, and fresh popcorn for all of your guests. Party packages are for kids 2-12 years old and start at $400.
