It’s been quite a while since we’ve been to a theatre for a family movie night so we decided it was time to take the kids to a movie. We originally planned to go together as a family, but finally decided Campbell, being a toddler, would probably enjoy spending some quality time with Grandma and Grandpa more than sitting around in a dark theatre.
The kids were really excited about going to the theatre and Cooper has been talking a lot about wanting to see Big Hero 6. We decided that was perfect for our movie night.
We’ve been to AMC Theatres before, but I guess we hadn’t been to the one closest to our house before. We bought our tickets and headed to the concession stand for popcorn, candy, hot dogs, and drinks. We got three ENORMOUS cups (the boys shared one) to fill ourselves at the Coca-Cola Freestyle machine.
WOW, were there a lot of options! These are just some of them:
John loves the Coca-Cola Freestyle machines because he drinks diet pop and there often aren’t a lot of diet fountain pop options. At the Coca-Cola Freestyle machine he was able to get a diet Coca-Cola with vanilla, his favorite.
I picked out some Barq’s Root Beer, which I love because I love root beer and Barq’s is the only one with caffeine in it. I need a little caffeine being at home with 3 boys all day and night!
We don’t really let the kids have pop, but there are plenty of non-pop options. The boys can never agree on anything, so I thought sharing a drink might be a problem. Amazingly, there were enough options for them to find one they both agreed on – Strawberry Lemonade.
With our drinks and snacks, we headed into the theatre and fell in love. Our AMC Theatre has super comfy seats that recline all the way back, have footrests, and you can even lift the armrest so you can cuddle.
We relaxed and enjoy the previews (which we almost as good as the movie – lots of great family movies coming soon!), the movie, and our snacks.
I’d highly recommend Big Hero 6 if you haven’t seen it already. It’s sweet, and has a lot of action, and it’s funny. We all loved it and can’t wait to have a copy to watch at home.
We also all loved the AMC Theatre, and definitely want to return soon. I don’t think I’ll be able to sit in a regular theatre seat again now that I’ve been spoiled with these!
