I'll try calling AMC.
I just found out the Carlsbad Village only does: sports, inspirational documentaries and power point presentations for private parties only for using the screen. The previous owner who sold it to him was "very technically minded and wanted the best modern screen." He doesn't really care how great the screen is and therefore doesn't take full advantage of it.
Once a year though, he shows a Warren Miller film using a 70mm ~2,000 lumen xenon bulb film projector. This year it'll be on December 6th. He calls it the "ski spectacular." I'll have to see it. It's near my birthday.
Also, you say you didn't want to start an argument, but your very reply implies that those that don't take their kids to the theater don't love their kids.
How so? Can't it be a cultural thing?
In Africa it's indecent for a woman to show her knees and she'll be stoned, but perfectly alright if she goes topless. In America a woman can show her knees but can't show her nipples topless, or she'll go to jail. She won't get stoned, but still punished. Which country's right? Who's the pervert? Who's immoral?
So for my type of "love" my child comes with me everywhere. For yours, maybe not. But this isn't an ethics class. I did that garbage in my university over 10 years ago. In short, what's good for the goose isn't always good for the gander. You can be the goose and I'll stick to being the gander. Also I hate, "that's your opinion!", argument too and people point out you didn't preface it accordingly. Of course it is. Whether or not I state IMO/IMHO, it's still my opinion. We analyzed that in my university classes too. But it doesn't take a university class for someone to know, "Sushi is yucky, don't eat it.", is an opinion, while "don't eat puffer fish if you don't want to risk death from improper preparation.", is a fact.
