Call Box Office on 0161 200 1500. The line is open daily between 12:00 – 20:00.

Children aged 3+
HOME aspires to make all our customers welcome, no matter how small and we really hope that our younger visitors become regulars at our theatre and cinema.

Our Parent and Baby Screenings take place on the third Thursday of each month and are designed ONLY for parents, grandparents and carers of babies aged 12 months and under. Screenings are priced at our regular matinee ticket prices, with no charge for your baby.

If your child is aged over 12 months or if you wish to bring older children, we recommend bringing them along to our monthly Bring the Family screenings.

During our Parent and Baby and Bring the Family screenings, adjustments are made to the cinema environment to make it more comfortable and convenient for you and your baby. The sound will be at a lower volume and the lights in the cinema will be kept on throughout the screening at a dimmed level.

Unfortunately, we are unable to admit babes in arms to other screenings and all our screenings are subject to BBFC age certificates.

In consideration of our audience and performers, no children under 3 years of age are admitted to our theatre shows unless the production is specifically aimed at the very young.
