Default Movie ticket needed for a 2 year old?

Are movie tickets really needed for a 2 year old? I got charged twice for taking my kid at Festival City Grand Cinemas but remember not being charged at movie halls in Deira City center or MOE.

So which one is it? Charge or not be Charged?

As per Reel Cinemas, all children below the height of 1.1M need to have a ticket purchased. Toddlers can enter for free but won't be entitled to a seat for themselves.
If it's a kid's movie, they will charge your kid. If you can sneak into the cinema with your 2 year old for an adult movie, you're lucky but then again, kids shouldn't really be in the cinema hall unless it's a G rated movie made specially for them.

You should read this book called, Go the F#!k to Sleep. Hit me up on PM and I can send it to you and also the audio version which is read by Samuel L. Jackson... that book is awesome....

Looks like someone identifies with the above mentioned book even if he/she hasn't read it.

Yeah, I have a kid who used to take up to 2 hours to sleep so I can relate

Even so...and to each his own....a toddler should not be in a movie hall after 7pm. It's just plain annoying when people bring their little kids to the cinema and they start screaming and howling and causing a general nuisance. The general public should not pay the price because a parent is willing to sacrifice a kid's comfort so they can watch a movie.

But then they would be breaking the law that requires parents to take their children to Carre Four at 11 pm and fill them with drinks featuring ingredients banned in 36 other countries.
