Summer Movie Fun

We've been going to a local theater for their Summer Movie program. It really is a great idea. You get 11 movies for $8 and while they are slightly older movies, they are worth it. I love taking Abby to a movie every week. This week was Disney Nature's African Cats.

I was nervous about this for a couple reasons.

  • I am not a huge fan of lions. I used to have really bad nightmares about being chased and stalked by them. Yeah. Make of that what you will.
  • I didn't know what they would show in terms of gore and any procreation activity. Ahem.
  • It's not a cartoon.
Abby swears she loved it but she had her head buried in my arm for most of the movie. It wasn't as bad as I feared but it definitely had some stuff she hadn't seen before. The cats would chase prey and it would show them eating. I mean, it wasn't the Discovery channel by any means but maybe more than a four almost five year old needs to see.

So, I am wondering if I should take her to the next Disney Nature one. Chimpanzees. Surely it's got to be less violent than African Cats, right?
