Baby Pictures is our regular Friday morning film slot exclusively for carers with little ones aged twelve months and under. This week we are keeping it in the Tenenbaum family. Your baby will be asking you to make their bedroom symmetrical on the way home.

The Royal Tenenbaums is a hilarious, touching, and brilliantly stylised study of melancholy and redemption from Wes Anderson. Including all star cast Gene Hackman, Anjelica Huston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Luke Wilson, Ben Stiller and Bill Murray.

Royal Tenenbaum (Hackman) and his wife Etheline (Huston) had three children - Chas (Stiller), Richie (Wilson) and Margot (Paltrow) - and then they separated. Chas started buying real estate in his early teens and had an almost preternatural understanding of international finance. Margot was a playwright and received a grant of fifty thousand dollars in the ninth grade. Richie was a junior champion tennis player and won the U.S. Nationals three years in a row.

Virtually all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure and disaster. This is the story of their unexpected reunion one winter.

Baby Pictures 

Baby Pictures is open to carers and little ones of twelve months and under. As everyone in the cinema is a parent or carer, there’s no need to worry if it gets a little noisy. Everyone understands. Customers not accompanying a baby will be turned away.

The lights are turned up a little bit and the sound is a little softer to create a peaceful environment for you and the baby. It’s just for carers (Mum, Dad, Granny, Granda, whoever it is it looking after the tot) and babies. Up to two adults can come with a baby. Please note: we cannot allow babies over the age of 12 months to come to Baby Pictures.
