There is a 2nd run theater in Ames that only charges $1.50/movie. I figured we'd try it and if he doesn't do well/didn't like it, we could leave and not be out a ton of money.
He was more interested in the arcade games in the lobby at first. Then we got some popcorn and soda and went in. He was pretty antsy.
The preview stuff had been running for a few minutes when he wanted to go home. Ugh! I thought i'd at least get to see some of it! He settled down and sat down next to me.
Then the predicted "potty". Well, we go, he looks, washes his hands and then finds booster seats outside the theater. So we grab one.
He did really well for about the first 30-45 minutes of the movie. Then he started to get antsy. He kept going from one seat to another in our little 5 seat section.
But we got through the whole thing! I just think we'll wait for our next movie experience!
