Saw it with a garbed crew in Nashville last week.   We had a great time!  We all really liked it and agreed that the animation is absolutely beautiful!!

Wife and I went to the Weds matinee and really enjoyed it. Agree with everyone that the animaton was very realistic. Reminded me of some real portions of Scotland I've been to in the northern coast, and very much made me wish to be back.

Can't believe we didn't even think to kilt up...... :-[

We saw it yesterday morning....though we had to sit through 40 minutes of kiddie previews. Not a knock on the movie; but the published start time was 11:40 but they didn't finish previews until 12:20. I don't think we'll try any more Wednesday matinee showings.
   I read on one of those '10 things you don't know' blogs that you really shouldn't worry about being late for a movie anymore.   Now days, the 'start times' are designed to get everybody in their seats for the commercials (many of which you've already seen on TV) as well as the previews. You actually have about 15-20 minutes before the feature starts.
    We use it to hit the concessions, rather than getting snacks before sitting down.  Getting there early for a good seat is really not an issue unless you are going to the opening day or two of a popular flick, or you are attending with a huge tribe of folks who want to sit together.

Funny thing about movies these days... We don't watch television anymore because of the poor programming for one, and stupid, inane commercials for another.  I'm not going to pay to watch commercials. It's very rare that we go to the theater for movies anymore, usually only when my son is visiting, because he is a huge movie goer.  I saw my first (new generation) 3D last week.

I guess y'all are going to AMC or Cinemark theaters a lot, since they both sell advertising in front of their shows. I love previews, but I too find the ads annoying, and I always think it's funny that they pimp TV shows at the movies! But I guess their option would be to charge you even more and let you stare at a blank wall...
 While the rule of thumb is that the showtimes mean the start of previews, AMC is frequently cited for having the latest 'start times' for their shows, part of that is based on one of their long standing guidelines that shows should not start till everyone is seated, but it generally has more to do with running a multi theater complex with the minimum amount of staff.

for the record, I went to see brave for $7 at the Alamo Drafthouse, they sell booze- so no kids, and they generally tailor a preshow to the feature, so for Brave it was a lot of clips of stuff like Braveheart parodies and Billy Connely's standup shows.

   Now that sounds like fun! 
  Yeah, the Marcus 16 theater is AMC-They just recently (this year) started showing TV show and product commercials, all of which are already on TV, and don't translate well to the big screen. 
   We rarely go with children, I wish they had something like this in our area.
  They do have $2.00 popcorn/soda combos on Thursdays for the matinee.

I've read about some theaters in Australia that serve meals and drinks...THAT'S what I would like.

Several theatres do - Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, I think there are some in the DFW as well. Heck, we even have a few out here in NC...

You can get beer (including Guiness) at the AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring, MD  :)

On topic though, can't wait to finally be able to sit down and watch this movie!

We went to see Brave at the Aloma Cinema Grill, which, oddly enough considering the name is similar to the Aloma Drafthouse, is in Orlando, Florida. They serve food and drinks, including beers and wine. Tickets are normally only $7.50, but we went as a group and got in for $5.50.
