Fifi Went to the Cinema

It was Fifi’s first ever trip to the cinema on Sunday, at 21 months we were a bit unsure whether or not she would be able to manage it, especially as it was a 3D screening. Still, I decided to risk it partially as I really wanted to see the film (Despicable Me) more of which in another post. We sat in the front row and provided her with some 3D glasses and a large box of popcorn. The popcorn was a success, the glasses provided many moments of mirth.

Surprisingly enough, she absolutely loved it. I have to admit there were moments where she decided to join in “story, story” was screamed loudly along with various shrieks of delight. I loved it with her too, her enjoyment of the experience was infectious. She was really interacting and taking part, it was fantastic. She is not a child that pays much attention to the endless films and television that Toddler Boy demands, so it was great to see her enjoying a film like this.

I suspect that was the first of many family cinema trips. If you haven’t taken your little one, our local cinema does screenings for £1 on Saturday and Sunday mornings, I urge you to check them out its a good way of filling a morning and doesn’t break the bank.

    I was surprised too at how well my little lad behaved when I first took him to the cinema. <br /><br />Can&#39;t wait to check out Despicable Me. It did really well in the US. Eeeek! x

    I took my eldest who was then three to see Ice age 3 and Up at the cinema He was really good at the first, but cried firstly when the bird got captured and then becuase he we the freed again at the end. Now we stick to DVD&#39;s at home, if he doesn&#39; like it, it can go off. The down side to this is when he finds one he really likes we have to have it on several times in a row.
