Me and my boyfriend wanted to go see Alice in wonderland-big johnny depp fan- and I had ran and bought the tickets at the little machine on the side, and ran another errand so i could come back and skip the wait and just go right in. I gave the lady my ticket stubs and she asked me how old My daughter Lylie was i told her two, and to my surprise she told me that Lylie needed a ticket. I then asked since when, because I was here just last july and nobody made me pay a ticket then, so why now? still didnt change their minds, and because i had already paid, i had to go an purchase another ticket that i felt was a waste because, what two year old will actually watch the movie all the way through. and some people are going to say why not get a sitter, 1. i dont have any one that can watch my daughter during the day, (my day off) to get the least costlier tickets 2. i knew it was a short movie (unlike HP which is a nightmare with a two year old) and during her naptime so i figured it wouldnt be a big deal to take her. But to the point at hand, why is a theater charging for 2 year olds, when for the most part they probably dont have the focus to watch the movie (kid or adult) the parents are probably not going to get their moneys worth because they have to calm the 2 year old down, and parents dont get discount tickets. Even theme parks dont charge for children under two because they know that 2 year olds cant fully enjoy the park. i just dont get it.
