Hawaii Mom Blog: Birthday Party at the Movies

Birthday Party at the Movies

My son, Cade, loves dinosaurs so when we found out Disney and Pixar would be releasing The Good Dinosaur on his birthday, it was like the birthday party gods had given us a gift.

When you throw a birthday party at the movies, you have a lot of different options.  Luckily, at the Mililani Consolidated Theatres there is a party room that you can rent which was perfect for us. 

It's a bit of a gamble as there is no guarantee the theatre will be showing a children's movie the weekend of your party.  You also don't find out the showtime of the movie until the Tuesday before.  For this reason, I decided to include coloring and activity sheets in the goodie bags in case there was a long wait. 

Turns out there wasn't!  We had set up for the party the night before and arrived at the theatre in the morning.  Fifteen minutes later they were escorting us to our seats and passing out the kids' popcorn meals we ordered with the party package.  They called the birthday boy to the front of the theatre and we sang Happy Birthday.  They then let Cade give the projection room orders to start the show!  So much fun! 

After the movie, we went back to the party room where we had lunch and cupcakes.  The kids had lots of space to play.  When you rent the room you are responsible for putting the tables and chairs back, but that's it! 

We loved having a birthday party at the movies!  The staff was excellent and made our party a huge success!
