Monsters University preview night with my guys. #monstersu

Monday evening we took the boys to preview Monsters University at Regal Cinemas at
Bridgeport. While the boys were not excited about having to wear the 3D glasses to see the movie, they were pretty stocked about seeing the movie itself. I gave them coloring pages and the Monsters University ID cards to design on the drive to the movie. They wore their ID cards with pride.
I also splurged and gave them bottle return money so they could buy treats at the theater.
When we arrived at the theater the local Radio Disney station was all set up with a booth. It was pretty crowded, but the little Radio Disney Mobile was parked off to the side and perfect for a photo op. (note I was bent over leaning into the boys, I'm not that short honest)
We headed in to the theater and picked out some pretty good seats (ironically my husband let me know if was the same place we sat last time we previewed a movie and will likely be the same spot the next time.)
Once our seats were selected I took Nathan to pick up popcorn and snacks (junior mints for N and reeces pieces for C). I forgot how expensive candy and popcorn are, yikes!

We had to wait for almost 45 minutes for the movie to start since we had an early arrival time, thankfully Cameron has his coloring page to work on . We chatted with a couple fellow bloggers and waited for the show to start.

The movie started with a short that was really unique, it even caught the boys' attention. Check out the clip below for "The Blue Umbrella"

After the short, the movie started right in. I have to tell you it was some of the best animation and adaptation my husband has ever experienced. He talked about how real things appeared most of the night on the way home and even after we got the boys to bed. He was impressed.
The boys loved the story and even talked about the story line on the way home.
This mom loved the underlying morality of the story line.
The movie has a lot of action, awesome animation, fun music, adorable monsters, a even teaches some consequences for your actions in the end.  I love the idea that even the unnoticed, unloved, underdog  characters come out on top. (opps was the a spoiler???)
You can check out a clip or better yet , just go check it out in the theaters. It opened today (June 21st) in theaters just about everywhere. It is a great family friendly film.
