I love going to the movies.
A “night out” where I can escape the routine of my busy life and get lost in a story on the big screen is a welcome treat.
And occasionally when an awesome family movie comes out, I’ll take my girls for a rare and thus extra special trip to the movies.
To celebrate Visa Checkout and Cineplex’s new promotion, I was able to take my two girls, Julia and Sophia, and my niece Olivia to see the new release of Monkey Kingdom.
We turned it into a “day and night out” type of event. You see we were downtown Vancouver on Saturday for Olivia’s cheer competition. After she was done her routine we decided to play “tourist” a little downtown and then head to an early showing of the movie. Since we were out and about and on a tight schedule of packing in as much fun in a day as we could, I pulled out my smartphone and went online to purchase our tickets.
Especially with it being the opening weekend of “Monkey Kingdom”, I didn’t want to risk the movie being sold out when we arrived. (I would have had three very upset monkeys on my hands!)
Then we could relax and plan our arrival time to allow for purchasing popcorn and getting seated just before the movie started. We had a perfect “night out”.
