Cinema chain to put kid-friendly playground inside theater

Playground inside movie theater

There's a new type of theater in the works that's geared towards kids.

But not everyone is excited.

These days theaters have gotten strict about distractions, but Cinépolis said it doesn't mind and is even inviting the sometimes noisiest guests.

The new theater features a full on play structure with a slide and everything. The seats are even kid-friendly with a few rows of bean bag chairs.

The company said they are trying to make families feel welcome, but not everyone is loving the idea.

"This is easily one of the top 10 worst ideas I have ever seen. Garbage on every level," Andrew Clark said on social media.

"Finally, a playscape as clean as a movie theater floor,” John Gholson tweeted.

The company plans to open the first playground theater this month in southern California. There is no word if they have any plans for a Texas location.
