To the Movie Theatre....And Beyond!
Gentle readers, you may recall my last attempt at taking himself to a movie Up! In Smoke . It didn't go so great. But it has been almost a year since that not-so-successful movie outing, and if Toy Story 3 can't help us get beyond this block, nothing will.
So, the nature of the debate around these parts is, whether to try to, not force, but push him into going. One side of the argument being, if he doesn't want to go, big deal, don't go. The other school of thought being, going to a movie together is a nice activity, something we can all do together, something you can do with friends. It's perhaps a place worthy of getting comfortable with. What to do...what to do....
Here's what I'm thinking....wait until the movie has been out about a week, so the theatres aren't packed anymore. Perhaps I'll aim for a weekday morning, and fit this in someday before school let's out for summer, and the city is once again brimming with school aged children all week long. Just like before, I'll pack enough sweets to get us through....and hope for the best. Maybe we'll read through "Curious George goes to the Movies" and "If you take a Mouse to the Movies" a few times, to put some excitement into going to the cinemas....and hope for the best.
And if all else fails, you get a full refund if you leave within 20 minutes of the feature presetation.
