    Default Thoughts - bringing small children to the movies at night

    Having a difference of opinion with DD2 and DD3 here.

    What are people's thoughts on parents bringing small children aged around 2 - 6 years old to the movies at 7.30pm to see the Lion King.

    1. Makes no difference to me,. I don't care if the kids act up. It is a kid's movie after all.
    2. Fine if the kids are well behaved
    3. Not on under any circumstances
    4 Something else.

    For me the answer would be 3 for my kids at that age but for other parents 2!

    Agreed! 2 is especially important. Went went and saw it a week ago in the afternoon and the kids behind us kicked DH’s chair the whole way through, they talked, jumped over the back of DD’s chair and were just painful. The parents did nothing to stop the behavior 🤬🤬

    2 for me. Though DD is 6 and I think it would be too scary for her, so I’m not convinced it’s really a kids movie.

    For my kids: 3.

    But it's a kids movie I'd expect kids there, but id expect the parents would have them behaving reasonably well....I would tolerate an average amount of noise from children that age, as much as id be wanting to hear/see the movie in peace because I'd paid for it

    Babes in Arms are in the daytime though - so are you saying you think day time is more appropriate?

    I'll add we took ds1 (8) to see Pikachu detective at 7pm, there were a few smaller kids, they talked through the movie. It didn't bother me so much having my own small kids I've learnt to actively filter it out .... but df kept complaining the ones behind us were too noisy and he couldn't hear the movie.

    I think 2 but for a 2/3 yo no they can go during the day a 6yo I suppose. I'm more of the opinion night time is for adults and older kids

    It's a kids movie. There are going to be kids and chances are they arent going to sit in silence for 90 minutes. Provided other kids aren't screaming or climbing over me I expect there to be children making noise at times. If my kids are loud then I take them out for a break and I would expect the same of others.

    If a child is kicking my seat I would turn around and ask them to stop, I have done previously and it's alerted the parent to the issue and it has stopped. If it continued I'd find an employee to move them.
