  • Not to mention captioned movies. More information on their website.

  • Love the Crybaby Matinee option. As a non-parent, I wish there were more options like this for parents so that they’re not faced with either 1) not doing fun things, or 2) potentially making other people’s fun things less fun d/t crying baby.

    • Same. Wish there was an evening or weekend option for parents that work. I say this as a non-parent, as it may deter people from bringing babies to the regular shows.

    • +1. Though, they should probably do an early show on the weekend too because only stay at home parents would be able to make a Wednesday matinee.

  • remind me to stay the hell away from intern night, though.

    So this is going to be better than the theaters when they operated in Union Station, right?

    How do they know if someone is an intern?

  • I went for a special event this last week, and really enjoyed it. The location seems a bit isolated, but once you’re in there it’s really great.
