Turn out the lights and grab some popcorn as the Rubens at the Palace launches its Summer Kiddies Cinema

  • Date: Monday, 18 July 2011

The Rubens at the Palace, part of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection, is dedicating this August to its young guests. The Rubens is turning one of its conference suites to different use over the school holidays and is launching a cinema, screening some family favourite films.

The Jubilee Suite at the Rubens at the Palace will become a complimentary children’s cinema for the whole month of August, with movies shown daily at 4pm and 7pm.  With an extensive selection of movies available, children will be greatly entertained and assured movies won’t be repeated often.  There are of course the classics and firm favourites such as Shrek, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Toy Story I, II and III, Scooby Doo and Aladdin, which will be shown at 4pm.  For the ‘big’ kids, the later viewings at 7pm will have movies such as The Princess Diaries, School of Rock, Freaky Friday, The Simpsons Movie, and of course Harry Potter I, II, III, IV and V available.

Each guest will receive a complimentary box of popcorn, a carton of juice, and either a bag of sweets or an ice lolly for the movie.  A delicious Princes and Princesses menu is available at the Cavalry Bar, which includes kids’ favourites, macaroni and cheese, ham and cheese toasties and mini fish and chips.  For dessert, children can delve into ever popular chocolate fudge sundaes, banana milkshakes or chunky fresh fruit with yoghurt.

Further to the cinema, the Rubens at the Palace has appointed a Director of Fun and Adventure who will ensure every young guest gets a fun guided tour of the hotel, and a very special visit to the pastry kitchen where children can ice and decorate their very own cupcake.  Also in preparation for a long day of sightseeing, the Director of Fun and Adventure will provide each young guest with a personal rucksack and packed lunch which will keep little ones sustained from one fun London attraction to the next.

Malcolm Hendry, General Manager of the Rubens at the Palace says;

“This August, the Rubens at the Palace is putting our young guests first. We will be putting the emphasis on fun, ensuring our young guests are thoroughly entertained with our new cinema, princes and princesses menu, a fun tour of the hotel, a visit to the pastry chef and puzzles and games which are provided in their room.”

Families staying at the Rubens at the Palace can also avail of the wonderful ‘Kids Go Free’ offer, which allows children under 12 years of age overnight for free.  Family rooms are available from £287 including VAT, per room per night.  Rates are based on two adults and one child under the age of 12 sharing one room.
