Are you planning to see DreamWorks Animation's Madagscar 3: Europe's Most Wanted? We were invited along to a fun blogger's screening and it was a lovely chance to have a ma and sons date, just myself and the two biggies.
about the film
The old gang, Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo and Melman the giraffe concoct a scheme to leave Africa and get back to their beloved zoo in Central Park, New York via a travelling European Circus. Of course right from the outset things don't go according to plan and we see the friends on the run from animal controller Captain Chantel DuBois (a Cruella de Vil type voiced by Frances McDormand) against a backdrop of iconic European sights (in 3D!).
at the movies...
1. The teen and I (snapped by the preschooler) on the train en route to the cinema. So 15 years-old right? 2. Post-movie activities in Gold Class. The preschooler is in the background getting his face painted. 3. Vox pops after the film. 4. The kiddos getting their 3D glasses on.
My absolute favourite part of the whole experience was that once we were all snuggled into the plush oversize armchairs (Event Cinemas Gold Class) with lunch of our choice -- nachos for the teen, fish 'n' chips for the preschooler and spring rolls for me -- the preschooler leaned over to me and said, "This is just like movie night at home!" How adorable is that? I love that he associates fun movies with family time. Paramount captured some of our day here:
Of course the preschooler and I sang 'Circus Afro' for the rest of the day, and maybe part of the next. It didn't annoy the teen at all ;) If you fancy making a day of it too you might like to book Family Gold Class tickets at Event Cinemas and plan your circus training party at Circus Arts.
