I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Cine Grand Middlebrook

We were given free movie tickets for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own based on our experience.
Me - Cine Grand Middlebrook, wow! This is a nice movie theater.  The snacks are good. The popcorn does not always have that burnt taste that it does in most movie theaters. The seats are not as comfortable as your living room, but they are more comfortable than most movie theaters. The seats seemed to be in good condition, and I didn't see any broken ones like in some movie theaters. The movie theater was very clean. The employees were very nice. They responded very quickly to any problems. The first time we went to a movie at Cine Grand Middlebrook, there was a problem with the sound, and it was immediately taken care of. Overall, Cine Grand Middlebrook is a very enjoyable place to watch movie. 
Mom-  Cine Grand has a great web-site. It is easy to find information about any movie that is playing. There is even a chart with all the information about all the movies currently playing including language, rating running time, and all playing times. It is nice not having to look up each movie separately especially if you are not really sure what you want to see. Another nice thing about Cine Grand is that they while they have the popular movies playing, they also often have a movie or two that you can not find anywhere else around or that you can no longer find anywhere else around. For instance, at Oscar time, it was the only movie theater in our area where Birdman, which ended up winning the best picture, was still playing. It was also the only place in our area where you could see Still Alice, another Oscar winning movie. Cine Grand is also a good sized movie theater it is not a tiny one movie theater, but  it is not huge multiplex either. The nice thing about that is that it is neither as crowded nor as expensive as a huge multiplex. To see an evening regular 2D movie at our local multiplex is $11.01 for adults and $8.55 for children, and there is no senior discount. At Cine Grand the most expensive evening tickets are $8.75 and there is a senior citizen discount. All in all, there is a lot to like about Cine Grand.

And that's our view. What is important to you when you go to the movies?
