Technically this was a Family Day, not night. It's been a really long time since we have had a family night at the actual movie theater. Our son is about to turn three - the last movie we saw in theaters was Finding Dory and he fell asleep nursing in my arms. Today though, he had way too much sugar and literally bolted around the theater after the movie... However, he was old enough to sit though the whole thing.
Hotel Transylvania 3 Summer Vacation was a must on our Family Night to do list this summer. We have been fans of Hotel Transylvania since the first movie came out (Mavis was on my short list for girl baby names when I was pregnant with my son) AND we recently just caught the cruising bug. When I was a teenager, my friends and I went to see EVERY Adam Sandler movie in theatres, I’m so happy my kids can carry on my tradition. Dad on Time Out and I are also big fans of Andy Samberg and Brooklyn Nine Nine
Watching the movie had us smiling about all the cruising clichés acted out by some of our favorite characters voiced by some of our favorite actors.
We have been Scene members for years and have a bank card that racks up more points for us, so our movie tickets were FREE today!
We also received a ton of discounts with our Scene points for concession food, so we ate lunch and popcorn during the movie. For a family of four it cost us $28.
Before the movie, I played TimePlay on my iPhone. TimePlay is an interactive app that you can play in conjunction with the movie screen in your theater. I won the first round so I won 25 Scene Points. The games are a lot of fun, and you can earn points and cool prizes like cinema gift cards.
