Village Cinemas has paved the way for the future of kids movie experiences with two exclusively designed child-friendly cinemas now open to the public.
The first Vjunior cinema opened at Village Cinemas in Westfield Southland late last year, and now the second cinema is open at Westfield Fountain Gate.
Vjunior cinemas are Australia's first movie theatre designed by kids, for kids.
In collaboration with Mattel's Hot Wheels, your family's Vjunior session begins with interative play with Hot Wheels activity tables in the foyer before the movie starts.
With an emphasis on playtime, there is also a Mega Blocks play station, an oversized scrabble wall and colouring in with a selection of the children's artworks then projected onto the big screen prior to the start of the movie.
That's not where the fun stops. Inside the movie theatre, kids can choose to sit on beanbag chairs, loungers or regular cinema seats at the back.
Before getting comfortable, there's fun to be had sliding down the huge tube slide set up at the side of the theatre, starting from the top row of seats right down to the bottom.
Don't worry though, the slide is shut during the duration of the movie so you won't need to chase your kids up and down while the film is screening.
Lastly, there's a light up dance floor at the front of the movie theatre underneath the main screen where kids can bust a move to the music playing with movie's credit rolls.
Vjunior is a completely child-friendly cinema with modified volumes and lighting levels, a shorter pre-show, and an intermission. There's also a kid's menu offering child-friendly eats and a coffee cart for grownups.
If you're looking for a novel way to entertain your kids and somewhere exciting to enjoy the next movie blockbuster, consider Vjunior for your next cinema outing. Party packages are also available.
Vjunior is now open at two locations and Village Cinemas will open at Knox later in 2017.
