that's what we called it..a Big Movie. Mike and I decided, (as seems to be a popular decision for many people) that The Lorax would be a good first theatre experience for the kids. Really, i thought the kids did a pretty great job. They were restless near the end, but it was a 90 min film with 20 mins of previews and 15 mins of sitting prior to that, so i think that's pretty good sitting for 2 two year olds!
I also thought the movie was pretty great. Good songs, good message, visually cool to watch...we really liked it. Nora clapped after all the songs with a big smile on her face, and with every scene change where there was a second of blackness, Holden loudly announced "Uh-oh" and "What Happened?". So innocent and cute.
I am not sure if the kids favorite part was the movie or the popcorn...i'd have to venture to say the popcorn though. they were very serious about it and ate a ton! Nora even had a minor meltdown when she ran out and realized there was no more. thankfully the songs quickly got her mind off of it.
All in all it was a good time and we'll definitely be going back...it's free until they are 3!
