Parents in New York City who want to watch Lars von Trier’s sex film “Nymphomaniac” can rejoice: a local theater has a midday screening — babies free of charge.

The Landmark Sunshine Cinema in lower Manhattan is playing the first half of the two-part, five-hour movie as part of its weekly “Rattle & Reel” special, which caters to “caregivers and their babies.”

“Adults pay normal admissions prices but babies are FREE!” an advertisement for the special offer promises. The March 26 feature will be Mr. von Trier’s controversial film starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard and Shia LaBeouf, which recounts the experiences of a nymphomaniac after a man saves her life.

The first volume of “Nymphomaniac” opens in theaters nationwide Friday, with the second installment to open next month.
