Worth a try.. Dear Cinescape..


Dear Cinescape,
Alsalam,

Hope your all well, i'm sending you this email as a young mother that enjoys going to the movies. ever since i had my child, i no longer have the time to see movies anymore, because it is difficult for me, and many other moms i know, to leave their kids just to go see a movie. it requires lots of energy and time.

i moved to the United States 2 years ago, and i have discovered many great things about this country concerning facilities. one of them is how much they appreciate and respect mothers (parents). they always give them privileges and means to show their appreciation. one of the things.. which is VERY simple .. is having a special "MOMMY MORNING DAY" @ the theater. the theater i go to have Mommy days on every Monday at 11 am. i go there with my son and enjoy a movie with out worrying about people; whether they get upset or not, because of his crying or because of his running around .. everyone enjoys the movie just like they are at home with their kids. all the families feel happy with their kids instead of anxious or worried over disturbing other viewers. or feeling guilty for leaving them behind.

because of "Mommy Day" I made sure I go once a week to see a movie with my son, i get to meet soo many other mothers there and my son got to meet other kids as well .. some parents sitting on blankets with their kids crawling around, my son would stand on his chair to jump and dance when ever there was a song! they also provide a changing table inside the theater for a quick convenient diaper change. its a great experience for everyone!

i kept thinking how much I will miss this once I move back to Kuwait because there isn't such a thing. I then realized how simple and great the idea is .. anyone can apply it. all you need is one day! At a certain time to dedicate for mothers and their children .. don't they deserve the care and attention? don't they deserve 2 hours in a day or week? and it will also be great for the company's image .. it will show how you appreciate mothers, parenting and kids.

one thing i may add if you ever consider doing this .. to make only one condition.. that only family's are allowed in, no nannies or maids .. because that will ruin the concept and ppl will not want to go anymore. if it was just families who can bring kids .. it will be amazing fun for all (bonding) should be the goal of this day.

I'm very sorry for my long email but I really wish you get the idea that I am trying to convey.. I will be leaving you with a few links to show you how it works here .. a great role model a kuwaiti mother named Jumana Alawadi just published something about this on her blog .. i'm sure this will be a great hit in Kuwait if its ever applied in the right way!

thank you for your time.

They added nothing but .500 fills to the old fare ;p I am sure if asked they will have some lame excuse!

This is what I love about states. Even with these crises they have their prices to suit everyone!!

amu to be honest with you,
the theater i go to charges 12$
and they charge more if its a 3D movie!

so i think prices are maybe going up everywhere! maybe the film industry is becoming more expensive with this economy?!

but im sure there are other theaters that have lower prices. it also depends on location and quality of the place.
