Hello, DD has just started at primary school and her party would be a mix of old and new friends. Our flat would be a bit small for a gathering of girls and boys and the layout is a bit crap for a successful party - living room separate from kitchen and once they are all running down the hall to DD's bedroom I think it would get a bit manic. I see that a local cinema has a private screening room for parties. It seems lovely, and you can ask for film of your choice. I would much rather do something different like that, particularly as DD's birthday is a bit before Christmas and lots of other venues are doing Santa's Grotto parties and things. Additionally I actually can't stand soft play places. Has anyone done a party in a cinema for this age? Advantages/ disadvantages?
