I'm taking my 3.11yr old. Why do you think your dd would be traumatised?

We'll be taking our 4 yo. Why would it be a problem?

Isn't Frozen a PG? I wouldn't worry about it.

Ive seen it. Unless your child is particularly nervous or very easily frightened they should be ok. There are one or two scary moments (along the lines of toy story 3 incinerator scene) but other than that it's fine. And youll enjoy it too smile

I've been taking DS to kids club at the cinema a couple of times a month since he was 2.5. He loves it and can't wait for Paddington. The trailers for it look great.

I'm taking my 2yo with my 6yo. He loves the cinema and has been a few times, I think 4 is certainly old enough.

Ds is only 2.5 and hides every time the trailer comes on.... Which is a shame as he loves the cinema and I quite fancied it. I reckon you should be ok with a 4yo though!

I'm taking my 3 year old (and my 6 year old). It depends on your child. My 6 year old is more likely to be scared than my 3 year old.

isn't a big plot line that Padders is going to be stuffed by the Nicole Kidman character if she gets away with it?

doesn't sound very marmalade-sandwich to me. But then I think the new Paddington is completely the wrong shape...

I am going on Friday with OH and my 16 year old. Can't wait!

Please tell me it's absolutely fab, Suits!

I am not keen on Paddington's shape either, Special.

I saw the trailer and decided not to take DS1 who is 4 because I'm certain it will be too scary for him (he's scared of the bbc gruffalo).

I'm thinking of taking my 2yo for his first cinema trip by the time he is 4 I expect him to handle Saw and The Exorcist.

We took our 4-year-old to see Big Hero Six a couple of weeks ago, and Paddington was one of the trailers. She cracked up laughing at it. I think we would take her.

I'm taking my just turned 3 year old. This will be his first trip to the cinema. I'm hoping he will be fine, though prepared to leave if he isn't.

Fingers crossed he will love it.

and if you buy 2 loaves of Warburtons 'Paddington' promotion bread you get a free child's ticket to see Paddington : )

I think you'll find more difficulty having a 4 year old sit still through a 90 minute movie about a stuffed bear than you will with her being traumatized. grin

MajesticWhine Wed 26-Nov-14 20:09:10

I'm taking my 4yo. She's been watching the trailer on YouTube for several months, but she's quite the movie buff.

Leeds2 I was never into Paddington as a child but I really enjoyed the film.

Wasn't it given a PG rating because the dad wears a dress in one scene?

Poolomoomon Wed 26-Nov-14 21:19:14

Pg ratings are quite often a lot of poppycock anyway. The reasons they give movies that rating can be extremely minute, I pretty much ignore PG as a general rule wink.

I don't like the new paddington animation, he looks really freaky and I'm not a fan of this new funny duddy CGI shit anyway. However I do think my 4 yo would enjoy it. First time I took him to the cinema was his third birthday to see wreck it Ralph but he was too young at that point. I only got him to stay still for the duration by bribing him with food grin. He sits and watches movies at home now though so I think he'd love the cinema. Either taking him to see this or Get Santa.

Anything which as any form of "mild peril" is a PG.
I would just read the reviews or the IMBD if on and make my own mind up.
DD was 3 for her first cinema trip - also a PG iirr - and she loved it.
