My first movie seen in the cinema was :


It came out in 1974 but I get the feeling that I must have seen a reissue in 1976 as Star Wars was my second film.
My uncle Ray’s girlfriend Rose took me and we came in half way through and watched the beginning after the end.
I was a bit dissappointed because somehow I got it into my head that Cinema was like television but on all four walls.
I had a red apple which was given to me on the bus there rather than any cinema bought snacks.

I can’t remember what movie I first saw in the cinema. I’ll bet it was some sort of kids movie. Maybe one the Disney full length animated movies.

My dad took me to Star Trek The Motion Picture during one of it’s re-releases. Probably around 1982 for Wrath of Khan I’m guessing. That was the first movie I ever saw in the theater. I saw every Star Trek opening night with him (except for Kahn) up until Nemesis, which neither of us gave a shit about. I lived in Japan during '09 and Into Darkness, but we caught Beyond at the theater before it left.

Predator was the first R-Rated movie I got to watch thanks to my friend’s dad renting it on VHS way back when.

The earliest movies I remember catching on TV:

  • The Care Bears Movie
  • The Changeling
  • Ernest Scared Stupid
  • FernGully: The Last Rainforest
  • Ghostbusters 2
  • Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes
  • One Million Years B.C.
  • Superman
  • Superman III

I believe the original, theatrical versions of SW & TESB are great films. Beyond that, I have little in common with the typical
Star Wars fan here. Just a heads-up so you aren’t too taken aback when I say I prefer Dark Empire over Return of the Jedi.

My screenplay index.

I got to go to a local theatre when bout I was 7ish with the rest of my kindergarten class to watch the water babies. I haven’t a clue as to what it was about, then my parents took me to funky town to watch Herbie Goes Bannanas in the cinema, didn’t have a clue what it was on about. Then by dad bought a Betamax player, the first film we rented was Airplane.

Can you now see why I’m disfuntual now?

I can’t remember what the first film I ever saw was, but the first film I saw in the theatres was Cars at the age of four (I hadn’t had my birthday yet). I got real bored during it.

The above post horrifies me. I thought I was young.

It’s pretty strange, there are posters here with children and posters who are roughly the same age as those children. Wide range. Also does this mean Ric2 isn’t the youngest one here anymore?

I don’t think he’s been the youngest one around here for two years or so.

I should just put my age in my signature so people stop being horrified that they have a 15 year old in the midst.

Isn’t your age already in your handle?

My son is 22, almost ten years older than some of the posters we’ve had. (I wish his English was as good as Ric2 or Ziggy’s).

I think the first movie I actually saw at a theater was Star Wars (at a drive-in during the movie’s original release). I must have been two or three at the time.

Then there was my first date, when I went to see Cinderella at the theater with a girl from my kindergarten class. That was around 1981. Which is the same year I saw Excalibur and Dragonslayer at the theater. Then I saw Dark Crystal in the theater in 1982.

Looking back at all these great movies I was seeing at such a young age, all I have to say is, “Man, my momma was raisin’ me right!”
