Before you had kids, a trip to the movies was a no-brainer. You liked the actor or director or the movie poster was cool, so you went. Simple. But if you have little kids, you have to put a bit more thought into a visit to the multiplex, especially the first time you go. Here are some tips for making the first venture to the theater a success.

Do you ever take your 4/5 to the movie theater?  If so, how did (does) it go?

I do, and I try and make sure its a movie I know they will sit through, but its not always a success. We saw Frozen a few weeks ago and the girls absolutely LOVED it!! Despicable me 1 and 2, love both of them. We were going to see Planes at the theater, but never got around to it, and they could barely sit at home and watch the entire thing without running around, so I was glad we didn't take them to the theater to see it. I think a little older is best, but the select few that we do take them to see, they are usually really good in the theater.

We rented Planes at home too, and it wasn't a big hit with my guys either. Must be the movie? I really want to see Frozen... I'm thinking over Christmas break!
