Loc: It's all about the location.
Micah's thread about preferring his HT to the cinema(don't we all!) got me thinking about not only the last time I saw a movie at the local Odeon, but also the first movie I recall seeing at the cinema.

What was the first movie you remember seeing at the Cinema? mine was "Fantastic Voyage" with Raquel Welch \:\) in the late 60's, when me and my brother were little tots. I think it cost either $.50 or $.75! I remember being creeped out a bit by the special effects of that movie \:D . Also remember seeing "Planet of the Apes" in the early 70's.

If memory serves me correctly, it was either Bambi or Grizzly Adams in the early 70's.

I remember Planet of the Apes at the drive in.

I think my first actual theater experience (outside of "kid movies" and some Disney stuff, was "Midway" in Sensurround. My mom let me see it by myself at eight because everyone else wanted to see a different movie.

I'm still waiting for that one to come out in some special edition Blu-Ray with "added subwoofer effects" to let me feel each explosion the way I remember feeling them that day.

For me, it was either a re-release of Fantasia or ET.

The first recollection I can think of now is Logan's Run at the drive-in. It was a double feature with, I think, Rollerball. Must have been some movies before then, though. Of course, there were kids' movies before then, but I'm excluding those.

The first one that I "remember" seeing was "The Blob". I had to keep my feet in the seat because I was too scared to put my feet down near the floor where the blob might get me.

Funny how kids think.

The earliest non-kid movie I can remember was Midway as well. I am sure there were a few others before but Midway is the only one I can remember.

First I saw was a kid's movie like Jungle Book (I think that was it). Don't remember though. First one I remember seeing...

Star Wars. It was at a drive in though (remember those?). Don't know if that still counts.

That's hilarious! I envy you for having seen such an iconic movie like that, when it was released.

The first I can remember is Return of the Jedi, but I'm sure the first I actually saw was a Disney movie.
