In Raleigh, we have this WONDERFUL movie-dinner theater that shows movies just after they are out of the mainstream theaters but before they go to video. The admission at Raleighwood is a great price, and they serve meals at a table setting! It's a bargain, and a real treat! Plus, the atmosphere is more laid back making it easier to take little ones and in turn for littles ones to behave a little better than they might in a regular theater.
So, we picked a lunchtime showing and it went great. Only at the end did Mae need a few minutes in the back of the theater to calm down -- she got too excited when Eve and Wall-e were trying to save the plant with their friends -- and she loved it. But I think her favorite character was the little roach -- she kept calling out to him "bug!" Bug!
