One Father’s Timeline Of “One Direction: Where We Are”

One Direction Where We Are


AMC Theaters and Fathom Events hosted a special 3 day screening of the boy band concert film One Direction: Where We Are on October 12th 2014. In case you’re wondering, I’m not a fan at all of the group (because I’m a guy and a grown adult) but I do have a 14 year old daughter that loves the hell out of them so I did what any father would when asked “Dad, can you pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease take me?!”. I took her. What follows is an account of my experience and the only reason I’m sharing this is because it may prove useful to fathers now and in the future that may have to subject themselves to events like this because they love their children. 😀

12:44p.m – In the theater and the squeal and chatter of teen girls is deafening.

12:47p.m – I’m now thinking twice about being here. Maybe there’s still time to escape.

12:48p.m – Nope. I look over and see the excitement in my daughters face. Fine, i guess I’ll stay.

12:53p.m – Everyone is getting so loud now. What have i gotten myself into?
