Having said that, they sometimes have specific showtimes for films where they don't completely darken the theatre and tone the sound down a bit specifically for the parents bringing little 'uns.
Thanks for the advice! Manager said earliest show on Tuesdays ONLY - no exceptions. Good to know!(I'd dearly love to see Mad Max at the Alamo, but Mrs Gersen wants to see it, too.)
Is there anyone who can take care of your child for a few hours? Taking young children to theater is risky... It often ends with neither the parents nor the children having fun (much less the other patrons)...
I speak this as someone who often takes a bunch of younglings out (tutns out that being the only uncle who is single and with lits of free time makes you one of the parents' favorite baby-sitters).
I don't mean to discourage, I know how difficult it can be to go out when you have a kid, but if possible it's best to find someone nice and trustworthy to look after the children while you go out with the misses for an evening. :)
Eithet way, do find a way to watch the movie! I'm sure you'll enjoy it!
