Not as good as his other ones, yet Curious George continues to delight kids. In this one, the little creature goes to see a dinosaur movie with his yellow-hatted bff, but George gets into trouble (again!) when he somehow screws up the film projector! Watch, tho', when he does things right again! A very nice book.
The man in the yellow hat says, "Stay here and watch the movie and please stay out of trouble." I just roll my eyes... isn't this how all the Curious George stories go? You'd think this guy would have learned by now. I can't help but be aggravated by how a disruptive and destructive pet (also applies to a misbehaving child) receives applause at the end of the story as everything somehow works out for the best. In this case, for once, the damage done isn't entirely George's fault.

And then there's

We love Curious George and this adventure is just as great as all his others
The Curious George books were always some of my favorites. In this one George and The Man in the Yellow Hat go to see a movie. Of course George is curious little monkey and gets into some trouble.
Children love books where animals act like people. I know I loved Curious George as a kid and I think my class would as well.
..Georgia has became anxious once again. This time he is trying to figure out how the movie gets onthe screen in a movie theater.In the process he manages to knock the movie off but as usual he finds a clever way to entertain the movie crowd. I think its a great read for kids for entertainment purposes.
Curious George gets free popcorn because he messes up the movie projector and then "entertains" the audience with shadow puppets.

I really do like Curious George, but not this installment. I think they should stop writing spin-off books, because they're not getting any better.
Standard Curious George spin-off fare, although I do feel like George actually stumbles into trouble more than causing it this time...but WHEN will that Man in the Yellow Hat learn to stop leaving George alone?!

My husband and I remember this one from our childhood and it's just as good as ever. Movie houses have changes, but our girls enjoyed this story about the curious little monkey.
George once again manages to fix a sticky situation. When he causes the movie to stop playing he thinks of a clever way to keep the audience entertained.

Cute story about George and the Man in the Yellow Hat going to the movies and George learning how movies are projected. Shadow puppets ensue.
not every situation has to be bad. In this story, George is able to help fix the movie projector after it stops working.
I love Curious George! He's adorable and very mischievous. He always manages to stir up some trouble and then save the day. =)
My middle daughter loved Curios George and read everything she could find featuring this lovable little monkey.
Our son loves the adventures of this curious little monkey.
My kids LOVE all of the Curious George books!
The boys love George, and they love movies!
