Today, we took Nathan to see only his second in-theater movie, Finding Dory. The thought was that, by going to the first showing of the day on a Sunday, we might hit a church time or some such and the theater would be relatively empty.
This was the most packed theater I've seen in years. It topped Star Wars: The Force Awakens (of course we didn't see that until almost two weeks in). So, yeah, I was nervous as, during his first foray at a theater last year, he wanted to get up and walk around inside the empty theater halfway through. I still haven't seen Minions start to finish.
But this go-round, kiddo was awesome. Plain and simple. He sat through it all save for two bathroom breaks and he watched and seemed to enjoy the whole thing. He has a favorite character, even (Hank the Octopus).
Y'know what this means? MOVIES HAVE RETURNED TO OUR LIVES! Okay, sure they will all be kids movies, but they're movies!
I was worried this day would never come.
Oh, and Finding Dory was pretty awesome. Another Pixar tearjerker.
