When I was about 7 or 8 I went to this theatre. My sister is 6 years younger, so we needed to use the crying room. It wasn't bad. I can still remember those commercial for the snake bar. That was a long time ago. Dare say before most of you were even a twinkle...

GY2020 - THANKS for the pics

Thanks to everyone for the input. I guess I'll just have to win the lotto and set one up Or start a consortium called Moviegoing Parents and start our own thing up.

As to why would I want to take a baby to the movies, I don't. It IS disruptive and impolite to the other viewers if your child starts wailing just as the hero turns and whispers "......", (nope, didnt catch it either... Dang babies) the villain's eyes roll back and you have to wait until the DVD comes out . Hence, the Babies Crying room. You head straight to it with your child at the begining of the movies, as was correctly explained in an earlier posting, and sit there with your child and all the others wailing their hearts out and no one who isn't sitting in the room gets disturbed. THe entrance is usually outside of the main theater area so that even if the door is frequently opened the other movie goers dont get disturbed AND the really smart ones have headsets built in to the chairs so that you can listen to the movie without disturbing the kids and no matter how loud they get...

Why would you go with a baby to a movie? I dont know in most cases but here's why I was asking, one of my daughters turned 14 this weekend, decided she wanted the WHOLE family to go to dinner and the movies and I was trying to comply. We ended up doing dinner and then coming home and watching a couple of On Demand HD movies since she was mature enough to understand that we really didnt want to do that to the baby or anyone else and you know what? We still had a blast, the baby enjoyed himself and the popcorn and pop were a heckofa lot cheaper

The Alamo Drafthouse on Loop 410 West has baby day every Tuesday (1st showing of the day). They keep the lights up and volume down a bit - PLUS you can order food and enjoy a movie! Just call them for details.

Perfect for Mamas who feel a little stir crazy. The person who asked why you'd want to take a baby to a movie has obviously never been a stay at home parent......haha.

What about being pro active and giving your child Benadryl before you go to the movies?

Oh, yeah...there ya go! Drug the baby up, so you can have a good time! You should only give babies medication when they're sick, not for your own convenience.

You can take a "doped up" child just about anywhere.
