A New York theater is giving babies the opportunity to see Nymphomaniac Volume I absolutely free of charge. As part of its Wednesday Rattle & Reel screenings at Landmark Theatres’ Sunshine Cinema, adults pay normal admission, but all babies get in free.
One of the upcoming screenings happens to be Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac Volume 1, which has made headlines for its explicit content and was even banned in Turkey because of the sex scenes. Sounds like a perfect film for the whole family to enjoy!
The posting from the site reads:
The Sunshine Cinema welcomes caregivers and their babies on Wednesdays for our special Rattle & Reel screenings. Adults pay normal admission prices but all babies are FREE! Tickets available at the box office only on the day of show. Screening Wednesday, March 26 at 12:00 noon: Nymphomaniac Volume I. Screening Wednesday, April 2 at 12:00 noon: TBA.
A rep for Landmark said the posting was indeed correct and that “Landmark’s Rattle and Reel program has been one of our most successful customer service initiatives. Offering these particular screenings to parents with infants gives them an opportunity to see new films in the marketplace. Our policy is to offer all films to our patrons regardless of subject matter or rating.”
