How much do children pay at the cinema and from what age

How much do children pay at the cinema? It is not obvious to respond with "reduced price" or "free entry" (if infants).
The story of Alessia Masaracchia, mother of a 40-day-old newborn, who was asked to pay full price for her ticket and that of her newborn for entry to the cinema, quickly made the rounds on the web.
The woman went to the cinema in Stezzano on January 20th with three friends and her son, a newborn.
She was also asked to pay for the child, citing safety as the reason.
The woman then paid for a ticket costing 9 euros, full fare, for her 40-day-old newborn son.
The cinema managers justified the request by stating that entry into the theater must be paid by everyone, but it is common practice to allow free or reduced entry for small children, under 10 years of age for example or for newborns.
