It is time for a tantrum!!
Yep, it is Thursday again and I am ready to go!!
This week I really need to talk about Movie Theaters!
Yes, there has been a lot of talk about BABIES being band from restaurants and Airlines, but for me, it is theaters! Trust me, I know that this will make many people upset and I hope that you all understand that this is MY opinion, and my OPINION ONLY!
We now pay at least $5.00 per ticket and most of the time much MUCH more than that to see a movie. During the daytime when I go to get the 'best price' I do not mind kids - especially when the movie is anything rated under PG13. Actually, any movie PG13 and under is fine for kids, but babies?
I am a mother of 3, I completely understand wanting to go out in the world and see a movie when I had my little ones. However, I DID take my BABIES to the movie with me with the understanding that I might NOT be able to see the whole movie. When/If my baby started to cry and fuss I would take myself and my BABY out of the theatre to have our CRY TIME in the hallway.
The other day I went to see the Green Lantern (after the discounted hours) and there was this CUTIE PIE in the first row with her parents. She couldn't have been more than a year old. All this blond hair and a cute little 'watermellon' dress on - she was precious - right up to the start of the movie. Then when the volume went up and the lights went down she decided it was too much! Her screams could be heard up in our HIGH row throughout the opening ads and previews. By the time the movie started there were screams and yells about wanting to go home. The frustrating part was that the parents didn't seem to mind, or they just ignored it. Finally, about 10 minutes into the actual MOVIE the mom took the CUTIE PIE out and didn't return.
I am very sorry that MOM missed the movie and that CUTIE PIE didn't like the movie, but I paid more for that movie than I did the lunch we ate before we got there!
Please, DO take your BABIES and KIDS to the movie, enjoy them and the movie. BUT, if the BABIES or KIDS don't want to be there, take them away! It isn't fair to all the other people in the theatre that just had to mortgage their home to come see this over loud, over graphics movie if your kids cry or scream through the movie! I can't tell you how many movies I have only seen 20 minutes of until they come out on DVD!!
