Horton Hears a Who

Tara and I took the Emma, Levi and Isaac to the Huntington 7 for their very first movie theatre experience. It was alot of fun!

They were all grins from the moment we walked in. The seats were a bit big for Levi and Isaac, so they sat on the edge of their seats during the previews. It was a bit chilly in there, so Levi sat on my lap for most of the movie, which was kind of neat.

And we all thoroughly enjoyed the Dr. Seuss movie. Though we've read the book many times, we sat riveted throughout the whole movie. Of course all the kids ate all their popcorn before the movie even started! But they stayed with the whole movie, Emma sat giggling and squirming in her seat most of the time - very cute!

It was a good movie mostly for the kind of character Horton is - an elephant who is faithful 100%! His commitment to people who are people no matter how small - well that is something I can rave about!

Yeah Horton! I'm glad to hear it's a good movie.

Dr. Seuss is classic, i forgot how much that guy packed into such simple storylines... they didn't add much to the original story either except for the usual Jim Carreyisms.

Sounds like a really fun family experience. In my childhood, back in the 60s, we went as a family to drive-in theaters (like the now-decrepit one in Huntington). Always a great time.
