We have been waiting for awhile to see Harry Potter because babysitters are few and far between and we did not want to be at the movie with the millions of others so we waited a few weeks.
We got to the movie theater and it was awesome! We were the only ones in there until about 5 minutes before the movie started and then a family came in with two children and another couple, by themselves. Not a big deal, it was in a huge theatre and we were so happy to have an almost empty movie theatre experience.
Well…this was short lived. The night was rather frustrating and it all had to do with a young girl who was, I would guess, between the age of 10-13There were about 6 times this girl got up during the movie. This may not seem like a big deal, and it shouldn’t have been. She was wearing flip flops!
I guess the girl thought she was being cute and/or funny, but every time she would walk out and into the theatre she would run. I think she liked the sound of your flip flops against the floor and you could hear every step from her seat, down the stairs, down the hallway, and out the door.
The thing is, I had flip flops on too and you could not hear me when I walked, so why did I need to hear her?! The other problem is that her parents never told her to “sh” or quit getting up. She literally got up about 6 times!
We were in the 3-D version of the movie and that ticket was almost $14 EACH! Really…why would the parents pay for their daughter to go to a movie she is not going to sit through. $14 to hear a flip floppy girl run around = annoying. So parents, keep your kids quiet in a movie or take them out! Tickets are expensive and no one wants to listen to your kid for $14! You could pay a babysitter $14 to leave them at home and let others enjoy their night out!
Happy movie viewing!
