How young is too young to enjoy a movie in the theater? How do we handle choosing movies that aren’t too loud, scary, or overwhelming when viewed on the silver screen? And what, most importantly, does our 11-year-old co-host think are the best movie snacks and treats? Episode 8 is all about the experience of seeing movies in the theater, from toddler to tween and as a whole family. Join us!
