Things I love Thursday: IMAX Fun & An Angel To Boot

8/6/09


Mom BlogsI love movies! So when I saw that Five Minutes for Mom was hosting a giveaway for free IMAX tickets a few months ago, I jumped at the chance. We haven't been able to see a movie at the theater in quite a while because it is so expensive. I was super excited when I found out that I won two IMAX tickets!


We waited a bit to use them because we wanted to take my son with us. I expected to pay for an additional ticket when we got in line. But then, a sweet woman came up to my husband and asked if he wanted an extra ticket. She said that one of the people in her group canceled and she had an extra ticket to give away. So off my husband went and came back with a ticket for our son! It was such a sweet gesture and meant so much to us since money has been very tight lately!

We loved seeing the IMAX movie. The IMAX sound was awesome and the screen quality was just crazy. The first bit of the movie was in 3D, so all of us laughed at the goofy looking 3D glasses. My son & I especially looked funny because we had to put them on top of our regular glasses. But it was well worth it! There's nothing like the 3D experience!



Thank you Five Minutes for Mom for helping my family have a fun time at the IMAX movie! And thank you to the angel who donated an extra ticket too!

How about you? What are you enjoying this week?

We haven't taken the boys to an Imax movie yet- but I know they would love it. Thanks for the idea!

Imax is the BEST! I'll always catch a flick on the big screen! :)

That was awfully sweet of her to give you the extra ticket. I can't watch IMAX movies. They make me nauseous for some reason.

Wow that's great. It's always fun to win free stuff. I too have not been to the movies in a while. I only see movies that "you have to see" on the big screen. the last movie i saw was Transformers 2 and I probably won't see another in the theater till Eclipse comes out in NOvember. Whoot can't wait.

I haven't been to the IMAX in a long time. I am glad you all had a good time.

How wonderful! What did you see? We go to the movies once or twice a year, so it is always a treat.
