Wellington FL FREE Movie Night: Thumbs Up or Down?

Last night was the first time my family and I attended Wellington Florida's FREE Movie Night, which was held at the new Wellington Amphitheater.

Wellington FL FREE Movie Night Wellington Florida

We went with a group of friends who always attend FREE movie night and have a blast. Since it was our first time we didn't know how crowded it would be, so we arrived 30 minutes early to get good seats, which honestly I don't think there was a bad seat in the house. The crowd was surprisingly minimal with maybe 50-60 people.

Wellington FL FREE Movie Night Wellington FLThey had a little candy stand set up, which of course my boys wanted to buy every thing available.

So far I was giving Wellington FL FREE Movie Night two thumbs up! Hanging with friends, great seats, minimal people, FREE movie. What more could we ask for?

Unfortunately my two thumbs started to turn down when the "family friendly" movie started, which was Date Night. In my opinion this movie was far from "family friendly" and I question who gave the final approval to show it.  Although as a parent I shouldn't have trusted another persons judgement on what's "family friendly."  Next time I'll have to watch the movie before taking my family to see it, ask around or read up on it.

I think if a more appropriate movie was chosen for this family crowd both of my thumbs would still be up. Hopefully the next FREE movie night will be a complete success with the PG movie Marmaduke.

Hhmmm, I wouldn't consider a PG-13 family friendly.  What a shame!  I hope they do a better job selecting a more appropriate movie next times because, like you, I think it is a GREAT idea!

Sounds like they should have advertised what movie, what ratings, and if it was public, maybe nothing more than G rated would have been appropriate.

Leesa - Me neither and I expected the "13" to be for action and maybe a few words my children know not to use.  All in all I think this movie should have been rated "R," not PG-13

Joan - I knew yesterday what movie it was and the rating, but never expected them to show a movie like this.

Are you kidding me that they showed "Date Night"?  WOW!  Sorry your expectations went down the toilet when the movie began!

Renee - The movie was very funny for adults, I can't believe it wasn't rated R.
