    Taking your baby to the cinema

    This time of year is great for fantastic cinema as Oscar hopefuls jostle for audiences. But most parents think back to their cinema-going evenings with wistfulness – those relaxing times just the two of you, a tub of popcorn and the excited anticipation of seeing a film with rave reviews.
