Culture Shock

The family went to see “Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa” tonight.  This was the first time we have taken both kids to a movie together so it has been quite a while since I’ve been to a theater.  Man, did I get some culture shock. 

I found out retrospectively that tonight was the premier of “Twilight“.  A highly anticpated movie based on a series of books about a girl who falls in love with a vampire.  Needless to say the theater was jammed packed with teenagers.  They were standing in line more than an hour before show time.  And it was being shown on more than 1 screen.

So 90% of the theater was filled with either “cool” teenagers (seeing Twilight) or children (seeing Madagascar) running around everywhere.  Yes, I felt old.  I guess in about 10 more years my kids will be the ones standing in line to see the next teen movie.
