Recently our friends at Alamo Drafthouse announced a brilliant new plan… They are offering select movie screenings with CHILDCARE! You get to drop the kids off at a children’s movie staffed with fully trained nannies while you get to watch a grownup movie down the hall at the same time! How great is this?!

They have set up some special screenings with childcare for the upcoming features: The LEGO Batman Movie for kids pared with Fifty Shades Darker for grownups. These special movie events take place on Saturday, Feb. 11 and Sunday, Feb. 12 at 3:45 p.m. at the Slaughter Lane location. You can purchase tickets online here.

Here’s how this whole thing works:

Drop your kids (ages 5-12 years old) off to watch The LEGO Batman Movie under the supervision of certified nannies while you enjoy some grown-up time watching Fifty Shades Darker (complete with hootin’ and hollerin’). Please read all instructions carefully to reserve your spot. No walk-up tickets will be available.

  • 3:45 pm – The LEGO Batman Movie screening starts
