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.
