First Movie Theater Experience
We waited to hear what our friends thought of Toy Story 3. With reviews that said it was as good or better than Toy Story 2, we decided to give it a go. We went to the theater in Mount Vernon. They had an 11:50 a.m. showing that was only $6 a person. I haven't been to a movie theater since we have been married, it just isn't something we do very often (we do watch movies, we're just too cheap to pay theater prices), so this was a very big deal. I was excited.
When we got there we glanced briefly at the concession prices. Yikes!! $12.75 for a popcorn and a drink. We skipped that (though I think we really were the only ones in the theater that didn't splurge).
The kids liked the movie, but it was SCARY! Daniel informed me afterwards that he was NOT going to use his chore tickets to buy the movie when it comes out on DVD. We'll see when the time comes. But it truly was a little frightening on the big screen. Still, I think it was a good first movie choice. Eric and I both loved it. I'm not ashamed to admit I cried. And I did catch Eric rubbing something out of his eye several times there at the end.
