Going Gaga

New parent? Missing the movies? Every Wednesday, BMFI schedules an afternoon showtime designed for caregivers and their infants. These Going Gaga screenings feature one of our latest main attraction movies with theater conditions adjusted to create a baby-friendly environment.

House lights are kept on slightly for the entire screening so that you can more easily enter and exit the theater as needed, and the volume is lowered to protect babies’ sensitive ears. Our rear lobby restrooms are equipped with changing tables.

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