Free Summertime Movies

IMAG6314It’s too expensive for our large family to go to the theatres, generally.  I think I’ve only paid to take the girls to ‘Becoming Jane‘ (yes, we have a few Jane Austin fans amongst us) and mixed genders to the various Narnia movies when they first came out (not all the kids, just whom we deemed ‘appropriate’ to see the movies at the time).

Anyways, we were delighted to see the above poster for Free Summer Films showing at the Cortez Theatre and we jumped right aboard the first Tuesday we were in town.  Even seeing movies we’ve seen already on DVD.  It’s so much more exciting to see it up on the big screen, to sit in the individual seats you don’t have to share with a sibling, to step on spilled popcorn and feel the tackiness of spilled soda pop, to hear others whispering in the theatre.  These were Kid-Friendly (did I say free) movies which attracted babies in strollers that brought their parents along and gangs of pre-adolescents.  Ours added to the crowd of course.

So we took baby Marin along to see her first movie in a theatre.  Her mom came along too, to see Hotel Transylvania which amazingly  none of us had seen it yet.  What we did discover, however, is that Marin has already been to the theatre.  To see The Midwife in the company of other nursing babies and a bunch of unborns.

The Count, Dracula.  'Twas a funny movie, particularly the first half.
