Brief Answer:
Yes. you can enjoy with some precaution

Detailed Answer:
Hi Dear

There is no significant contraindication for going cinema hall along with such a small baby provided baby is not having any medical problems. Baby care rooms are usually near by the toilets.

Loud noise may disturb his sleep and frightened the baby. And may lead to excessive cry.
If the hall is quite noisy you can put a gentle cotton ball in the ear openings.
Flickering lights may attract the child, but better to avoid direct light.
Feeding /burping process to be tackled out side the hall.
Keep a regular watch on the baby for any regurgitation etc

Hope the query is answered.
Thanks
