Mommy and Me Matinees at Kennedy School

Grabbing a mom friend for a drink and a movie isn’t that hard to do in Portland—we’re lucky in that. But where else can you feel free to take baby to a movie? For new moms with infants in tow, the Mommy Matinees are just what the doctor ordered for a relaxing afternoon. The first matinee every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at Kennedy School is a “mommy matinee,” meaning that it’s for adults, but kids are welcome. Let your babies fuss or nurse, or bounce them in the aisle… it’s all good here. After the movie, enjoy a drink, a meal or a soak in the chlorinated saltwater pool. Minors are welcome in the pool until 6 p.m.
