Bringing Children to the Red Carpet

Bringing Children to the Cinema

Groups of children are very welcome at The Red Carpet Cinema. Simply select any appropriate U of PG film and phone our booking line on 01283 716257 to book your group in. You will need to bring two adult chaperones per six children and they will be charged at the same ticket price. Groups of children who are not attended to by two chaperones per six children will be refused admittance into the cinema. Please do not bring any birthday cakes, presents, goodie bags etc into the building as there is nowhere to store these items. Parents need to be confident they are able to control the children they are bringing to the cinema. Children should be able to watch the film quietly and shouldn’t affect other customers enjoyment of the film with excessive noise and movement.

Bringing Children to the Café Bar

Small family parties are made very welcome with a ratio of one adult to every two children up to a maximum of six children, with everybody seated together as a family at one table. You are most welcome to bring even more adults than children if appropriate.

Sadly, The Red Carpet cannot accommodate children’s birthday parties in the café bar and reserves the right to turn away a table booking turns out to be a birthday party and not a family and friends mixed group OR when two large tables have been booked independently with a view to joining them up on arrival.

The Red Carpet reserves the right to ask parties with children to leave without a refund if parents are unable to control the children they have brought. Parents need to be confident they are able to control their children so they do not run around the café bar or scream and shout with intolerable volume for tables with customers nearby.
