The 3 month old baby

I could be in the minority, but am I the only one that thinks bringing a baby to a midnight premiere is a bit odd? Leave this situation out, why bring a baby to the movies (some would say at all) that late? And if you can't find a baby sitter do you REALLY have to see the movie at that very second?

I'll confess that my perspective could be skewed because I don't have any kids.

Depends on what news station you tune in to. The age has varied from 3 months to 6 years old.

I thought it was two different kids? I haven't been tuned all the way in.

yeah... I don't see the point of bringing your 3 month old, but I'm not surprised if that, in fact, happened... people are dumb...

I've seen parents do this. As a parents we didn't do this but I don't' have a problem with people that do. Some people don't have sitters (family in town that they trust) and the few times I've seen this at theaters the baby sleeps through the whole movie. It's not like a 3 month old knows where they are.\

edit: I take much more issue with the 6 year old being there. A unseen by the parent, violent PG-13 movie at 12 pm. I don't understand how that child was even awake.

a packed midnight showing though?

I think I'd just wait a couple days and catch a Sunday matinee... just my opinion I guess...

Not sure why which day it is matters. Also I imagine parents would rather a late movie so they know the baby will sleep then a movie during the day when they are awake.

As a mom who went through a lot of baby blues but had a lot of great supporting family memebers around I guess i have a hard time judging parents who aren't doing anything that harms their kid (i think we all agree movie theaters are as safe as any where) trying to get out and have a few hours of enjoyement.

I actually talked to my friend who has a young kid about this. While midnight seemed weird to him too, he has brought his young child to movies with his wife before. At that age, their daughter just slept through the entire movie. She's never been much of a crier though I think, so.

My chaps are 4 and 6 (totally awesome, they can kick all of your asses) and I personally would not take them to a midnight premier. I took them to see mib3 in the theatre at around 7. They barely made it through. As a father I wouldn't take them to a midnight premier but I am a terrorist according to our government so what does it matter.

how are you a terrorist according to our government?

also, I don't think you bring a 3 month old expecting it to watch the movie.

The horrible tragedy aside, a 3-month old baby should never be brought to a movie for the sake of the movie goers. Especially an almost 3 hour long movie.
