Today we went to watch Alice in Wonderland at MBO Cinema with our 3 older children; 7,5.5 and 4yo. Baby, I left with my mom. Thank God for Mom!
This is the 2nd time we brought along our children when watching movie in the cinema. And for the 2nd time hubby “swear” not to bring the younger ones to the cinema again until they are much older.
The first time was 2 years ago and my 2nd girl got “kiap” by the seat and ended up sitting on her daddy’s lap. She can’t sit through the movie too; got restless after half an hour even with food and drink to keep her occupied.
1st tips; do not buy a seat for your child if you think your child is too light or too short.
Today, we did not buy any tidbits because we went for lunch right before the movie starts but it was way too cold in the cinema that I ended up going out to get some popcorns for them. Btw, why they don’t sell hot drink one?
2nd tips; bring a sweater along in case the movie theater is too cold for your kids.
3rd tips; no matter how full they are, must buy tidbits to keep the restless ones quiet.
When choosing the seat, we chose the most back seat and our children got to stand up to be able to see the screen. Thank God the theater was not filled up and we moved right to the front. It may be “neck breaking” for the parents but sacrifice lar since we are doing this for the children.
4th tips; choose the front seat but not way in front. We chose row No.10 from the screen. Just nice for our neck.
5th tips; bring them to the toilet to PU right before the movie starts. I guess this is common even for adult.
6th tips; don’t give them heavy lunch. They would want to pass motion half way through the movie.
If anyone have good tips, please add to my list.
