At The Movies: Monsters University

It was exciting to take the kids to the movie theater to see Monsters University. Scarlett had only been once to see Wreck-It Ralph, so it’s a big deal when she gets to go to the theater. Luke has seen four movies in the theater, so he is a pro. Still, it’s something fun and different for him, too.

The AMC Hoffman Center had some fun stuff set up to advertise upcoming films, so we entertained ourselves before the show.

I had a free ticket to the movie from Kelloggs, and Scarlett is 2 so she was free. Since we saved a bunch on tickets, we sprung for snacks to enjoy while we watched.

The kids were well-behaved from the beginning. The both really liked the Pixar short The Blue Umbrella that played before the movie. As for Monsters University, neither kid was scared of the monsters, as they had been worried about. Scarlett developed quite an affection for “Michael” as she calls Mike Wazowski. Both Luke and Scarlett were pretty into the movie, and we only had to shush them a few times. Tom and I both thought the film was great as well.

All in all is was a successful trip to the movies!
