Do you remember the very first film that you ever went to the movie theater and watched. I do. I remember my very first movie theater experience and it was Rocky III. I went with a babysitter who was watching my sister and I. It was an old cinema too, one that is currently being restored in our town.

What/If anything do you remeber about your first theater experience?

I remember standing in the line up for ET and The Empire Strikes Back, but that's about as far back as I go. I was born in 73' so I'm sure I would have seen some movies before then....but not really sure which ones....ahhhh, the good ol days.....when there was one theatre....and one movie playin' at a time......

My mom took me to Star Wars which would have been about 77? So I would have been arounf 4-5 years old. I really I could remember more of the 70's actually.

OMG I did see ET at the movies too, which was before Rocky III but I don't remember it. How in the world can that be??? Weird. I am going to have to search some memories for that one.

I think it was 1982....so it must have been either The Dark Crystal, E.T., or possibly The Toy. I did see all 3 in the theaters.

One of the first movies I remember seeing was "The Other Side of the Mountain". I remember me and my mom went to see it. That was 1975.

I remember seeing alot of the old Walt Disney movies at the theater when I was a kid...like Lady and the Tramp, 101 Dalmations, Snow White, Cinderella, Bambi, Dumbo, Old Yeller, and The Swiss Family Robinson.

I honestly think the Disney movies should still be played at the movie theaters...

I feel like it doesn't matter how many times you have seen a movie, to go see it in a theater, and the whole fun of making a night out of it, and eating movie theater popcorn...I don't think that stuff ever gets old. I think young kids today, would love to see that stuff.

Walt Disney use to play movies on Sunday nights...like : Charlie the Lonesome Cougar...he was always doing stuff with animals...I know that most kids have never heard of that stuff...it would be great if they would show that kind of stuff...like the original "The Incredible Journey".

One of the 1st PG movies I ever saw...was "Arthur". that's when I was in the 7th grade...other than Grease- which I had seen twice at the theater...my parents didn't allow us to watch PG stuff. But, then HBO came out, and changed all of that.

My first movie experience that I can remember was when I was five years old. It was 1964. The movie was Disney's "Mary Poppins".

I'm not big on that movie, but I love Arthur's Theme by Christopher Cross. I actually like alot of his music.

I don't remember exactly, but it had to have been a Disney movie. I think it was probably The Fox and the Hound in the summer of '81.

It was Mac and Me in December 1988, and 20 years later it still ranks as one of the worst theater experiences of my life--but luckily we got to leave early to go to a Christmas party.

Actually, I think it was Popeye in 1980. Thanks Devo, I forgot that I saw that in the theaters.

I think Popeye was one of the first movies that I saw advertised on the cover of the first HBO guide we got.

I love Christopher Cross
This is the flip side of Ride like the Wind- that is on a 45 record in my juke box...and I play it all the time:

The first movie I saw in theatres was one of the classic Disney cartoons that they re-released.
I think it was The Jungle Book.
All I know is that I was terrified, and It was too loud. =P

Minstrel Gigolo is a very nice song. I have Cross' 2 disk CD - Walking in Avalon and that song is on it. That song also features one of my favorite guitarists of all time, Eric Johnson, doing the solo. Cross also did back-up vocals on a few tunes from Johnson's CD - Venus Isle. This is one:

With my Parents : Doctor Doolittle (the original with Rex Harrison, not the abomination with Eddie ("I used to be funny, honest") Murphy.

On my own (with siblings): The Spy Who Loved Me - can't beat a bit of Bond on the big screen.

On my own (just me) : 10. The Dudley Moore / Bo Derek enjoyableness that despite my initial hopes turned out to be more funny than erotic (and was therefore an infinately better movie)

That's a tough one. I'm sitting here trying to remember. My earliest experience was a double-feature, if you can believe it, of Midway and The Search for the Holy Grail.
