Your One in a MINION Guide

Today is the day that every child and adult (come on, you are excited too!) has been waiting for … the arrival of the Minion Movie!!

One of our favorite movies has been Despicable Me and we have watched it way more times, then I can count! Monte even went as a Minion last Halloween!

Here are some things to think about before leaving for the movie, showtimes, and some free printables!

There are four different decisions to make before you head to the theaters!

  1. What theater are you going to? A lot of things determine this. Maybe you want to go to the closest theater to your home, because it will be a late night. If you go to the Flix Brewhouse you can enjoy dinner and a few adult beverages during the movie! Or if you go to Century Jordan Creek you can do a little shopping before or after the movie.
  2. Do you want to see it in 3D or Standard? This decision depends on the individual and family. Some families LOVE 3D, but some kids get annoyed by wearing the glasses the whole time. Make sure you decide beforehand since 3D showings are at different times.
  3. What date and showing will you go to? If you have younger kids, going to a morning showing may be your best bet. The later the showings, the more likely you will have older kids.
  4. Buy tickets online? Buy your tickets online! You can use Fandango, MovieTickets.com, etc. This guarantees you have a seat! Arrive early to get the perfect seat.
