My daughter is such a big fan of all things princess, so for day 7 of the Frugal Family Fun challenge, we decided to take the whole family to see the new princess movie Brave.
It wasn’t exactly frugal, however. I guess that I haven’t been to the movies in a REALLY long time, because my jaw hit the floor when the cashier told us it would be $32 for the 4 of us to see a movie. I double-checked that he had not given us 4 adult seats…turns out that they don’t have discounted tickets for kids. Wow.
After sitting through ONE HOUR of previews, the movie finally started. By this time, my little one was pretty much done with sitting still, so he roamed around between my seat and Daddy’s seat the whole time, but it wasn’t too bad.
The movie itself was very enjoyable. The scenes were absolutely incredible…it was hard to believe that everything on the screen was computer-generated, because it all looked so realistic. Even the main character’s hair looked so real!
It was nice to be inside a cool, air-conditioned room for 2 1/2 hours on a hot summer day, but the price of the admission left us feeling a bit guilty for spending all that money.
Have you seen any movies at the theater lately?
