Parents and carers will soon be able to take babies with them to the cinema in a Suffolk town.

The Regal in Stowmarket is introducing baby friendly screenings of films once a month. 

The first one is taking place on Wednesday, September 13, at 11am with a showing of the new film My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3. 

Billie King, deputy general manager of The Regal, said: "As an important venue to the local community, we were keen to introduce this scheme to ensure we are making cinema as accessible to as many people as possible."

Stowmarket Mercury:

"The purpose of these screenings is to allow parents and carers of babies to watch something a little more grown up whilst having their baby with them."

Film certifications do mean, however, that the films can be up to a 12A as even babies can't get into films rated 15 or 18. 

If the baby friendly screenings are in high demand then The Regal could increase how many of these they have a month.

More information and tickets can be booked on The Regal Stowmarket website.
