" From Pooh Adventures when our kids were real small to Tangled, Spiderman, Marley and Me and Oz. There are some classics like Bambi and Beauty and the Beast" ---------- That's nice. But I would not have any interest in seeing those films.

Rollmops  -my college roomate and I have often said that we would have loved movie theaters with wifi and a good coffee bar when our kids were young so we could have avoided having to see the movies all together..

"How come? You never took your dd to a movie when she was a child? " -------- Yes, sometimes I did, and a few times her father did. But we did not both go along because the child wanted to see a movie. Also, we usually had her take some of her friends along, so she would have company. IOW, we were only there to supervise. I also started quite early sitting in the lobby, so I wouldn't have to see the film, and by the time she was 11-12, she went with her friends.

Wow.....so out of my parental zone and most parents I know. Why wouldn't you have any interest in what your child has an interest in?

It is great to live in a city, since it means that the kids can go by themselves much earlier than in a place where going to movies requires driving. I remember though one time when dd had gone with a friend to the movies. It was early on, so I went to pick them up afterwards, since it was late and the cinema was fairly far in a hood they didn't know well. It was a multiplex, and the plan had been to see some odorless, colorless, silly Jennifer Aniston comedy. Except the wily brats had decided to see The DaVinci Code instead. They thought it was quite hilarious. That's when I decided they could manage just fine all by themselves.

Many if not all of the movies we go to the theater for are family ones, From Pooh Adventures when our kids were real small to Tangled, Spiderman, Marley and Me and Oz.  There are some classics like Bambi and Beauty and the Beast we still watch on video, Ha. 

I just took my ds to Monsters University. I love all those movies as they gear a lot towards adults as they know they are the ones in the theater taking the kids.

I can watch the trailer or read a review.

I think parents and children, and spouse and spouse, and friend and friend, etc should have common interests .. but not all interests have to be common.  If we all liked all the same things all the time, the world would be so boring.   And our children would grow up to be little replications of us. No one wants that!

Do you prefer to rent movies or go out to the movies?  It's hard to get everyone here to agree because of the different ages.  Sometimes it's just easier to rent and watch it at home with only half the family.
