Cinema with children: when will my child be ready?

Tips for your first visit to the cinema:

# 1 the right movie selection

The variety of kids movies is huge, so you need to get an overview of potential movies first. The FSK ratings of movies can be a first clue. But not all movies “from 0 years old” are made for all children. So to be safe, double-check the story of the movie you usually watch.


Are there themes in the movie that could be a burden on your child? With the movie trailer and reviews, you can be sure that the movie is the right one.

Of course, the movie should be interesting to your child too, but you know your child inside and out anyway and you know what they would like to see.

# 2 2D or 3D

Today you can watch many 3D children’s movies, but this is not highly recommended for your first visit to the cinema. When things come off the screen at your child, it can scare him. So when you go to the cinema for the first time, choose a 2D movie.

# 3 Prepare your child to go to the movies

Movie theaters are usually huge (indoor play areas, concession stands, and lots of different hallways), this can be exciting, but it can also be easy to intimidate your child. You can describe the cinema to your little ones beforehand and make them happy with fun experiences. There are also pictures of movie theaters on the Internet. As you do so, you can immediately check if you need to bring a seat for your child or if your theater has seat covers.

Before going to the movies, you can also watch the movie trailer with your child; then your child will know what the movie is about… it also creates even more anticipation.
