Wizard Of Oz

My friends and I took our 6 girls to see the Wizard of Oz on the big screen yesterday.  Our new theater in town was screening it for only a dollar.  Having a very timid four year old, I hesitated a bit before deciding to go.  But in the end, I figured we could just leave if she got too scared.  Now the theater gets some big pluses and some ginormous minuses (spell check didn't catch ginormous...who knew it was a real word???)  All six girls had a great time.  This was a big plus for the theater.  It was nice to let the girls have the whole movie experience, but for only a fraction of the cost.  They got to talk to together, laugh together, exchange silly bands, and eventually enjoy the movie.  Overall in their books, perfect!  Now comes the minuses.  My poor friend, M, seems to forget to remove the sign she wears that states she would love poor service every time we go to this theater.  No matter how often we remind her to leave the sign at home, she still wears it.  She has been to this theater over 10 times, and each and every time she has received very bad service (except for the one time she told the waiter she was expecting bad service, then he took good care of her.).  The theater is actually a Drafthouse which serves food and drinks at your seat.   You order at your seat and they bring it out to you.  Typically she either gets her food an hour later than everyone else or it is the wrong order and she has to start her order all over.  Either way, her food is always cold.  Poor M!  Do you enjoy taking your kids to the movies?  Is it too much of an ordeal or worth it?  Grab a latte, put up your feet, and join the discussion!

We have a theatre like that too around here and it's so fun! The kids love it! But to see The Wizard of Oz on the big screen? That would be awesome!! WOW. My whole family loves that movie! I always think of back when it premiered that "gasp" from the audience when it goes from black and white to color.

Cute Blog! My kids are ok at the movies but I gotta know the movie will hold their attention or I don't even try to take them. I am following from Tuesday Tag Along. Hope you’ll stop by for a visit!

Your poor friend :( I wonder why she's so unlucky with it. Sounds like you had a good time, though, and if the kids enjoyed it then that's the main thing.

I always liked it. We started them when they were really little so that they kinda grew up knowing they needed to be quiet.
