To refuse to take DD to the cinema to see this film

Because I don’t want to see it. DD is absolutely dying to see the new Matilda the Musical film but none of her friends also want to see and she doesn’t want to go alone so she’s begging me to go with her but I don’t really want to see the film to be honest. DD is 16. I know why she really wants to see it, because years ago she played Matilda in the west end musical show.
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

To me life with kids all about putting them first and doing what they want to do even if it wouldn’t be your choice! I had to sit through black panther with my 15 year old last weekend, I wasn’t really looking forward to it but I surprisingly enjoyed it and came home to watch the first one! See it as quality time with your teen!

I don't believe this is real. What kind of absolute misery wouldn't want to go to the movies with their kid? Is there a drip feed?
Wondering this too.
Besides it’s based on Matilda, one of the best children’s books ever written. Looking forward to the film myself having got the book as a child.
