Valerie sent in this heartfelt query as a response to a past post, and I'd like to put it to the group. What would you do?
What do you do when you encounter a small child who disrupts an age-inappropriate movie showing time? We attended an 8:00 p.m. showing of The Golden Compass on Saturday night. After we were seated, our row was entered by a family of three - a husband and wife who had brought their four-year old. He behaved as you'd expect from a tired four-year-old. In order to leave the theater during the movie, I would have had to tromp across several people, including this family. I asked them to keep it down during the movie, complained to management afterwards, and was fobbed off with future passes. My boyfriend said that my going to management was embarrassing to him because it accomplished nothing policy-wise. By the way, I'm not a MN native. Are there better options?
