What age did you first take your child to the theatre?

We want to take my son to see Rio later this week. My son is almost 2, is he too young to take to the theatre? He is good about watching Disney/Pixar movies.

  • I don't think he is too young, specially if you already know his attention span.

  • I've taken my youngest since she was born, so she has kind of been used to it. She is 2 and has a hard time sitting that long now, so we try to sit toward the front where there is a little room for her to get down and move without irritating people.

  • If he can actually *sit still* for a whole movie I think he would be good.. Or sit on the front row- where usually no one sits so he can move a bit...
    Our dd went & seen Princess & the frog as her first movie. I think she was 3, almost 4.... and she did good. she has went to the movies i think twice.

  • My son is 3...and I'm looking forward to taking him for the first time. I'm just not sure if there's a movie that's worth the money.
