  1. I went to the theater in 2010 to see a movie. The film was being featured in theater one. I was sitting very near the front with perhaps two or three rows of empty seats in front of me. The theater lights dimmed and started to roll the opening credits mostly just for upcoming films. All of a sudden I saw what looked to be a small child perhaps a little girl run through the row in front of me. There were no children or families seated in front of me at the time. I became concerned that someone had lost a small child and went to the concession stand to ask if anyone had lost their child. The person working the concession stand told me that no one had reported losing a child. This struck me as odd and I went back into the theater wondering what had I just seen. When most people report seeing apparitions they are like wispy shapes of people, this wasn’t the case. This was as solid as a living person. The light from the movie playing behind the apparition did not penetrate through at all and was enough to convince me that someone had lost a child. I had heard previously that the Welden was haunted but now I know it is.

  2. when I went to see the sponge bob square pants movie in the back at the top I felt something behind me and no one was there then I felt something touch me.
