Old term?

Meesie wanted to see a movie with her 'friend' Joe at 9pm on Saturday night. Now, normally this would be ok since she would be home by midnight but she had been very ill and missed two days of school that week. Chris and I felt that she should get some good sleep and maybe go to the matinee on Sunday before the Superbowl.

Matinee? She didn't know what that meant. We explained - she said - why didn't you just say the 2pm show? AJ even let us down - he thought it meant the midnight show.

Is that a term no longer in use? Are there just so many show times now that there isn't really a true matinee?

  1. Marty and I call any thing before the prices go up the matinee. I hear others use the term. Don't know about the younger generation.
