Throwback Thursday: What was the first movie you at the theatre? #TBT

It's Thursday!

giphy

Alright good folk, can you remember? I believe the first movie I saw at the movie theatre was Star Wars, back in 1977.

My older brothers attended the University of Iceland and it had a huge lecture hall that doubled as a movie theatre in the evenings. They would get student discounts and took me to see Star Wars (episode IV). I was seven 😊

How about you? Can you remember how old you were, where you saw it at, and with whom?

Have a great Thursday!

WOW - that was a LONG time ago. I don't remember the first one but would have been back in the early 70's. It might have been Gone With The Wind as I remember seeing that in the theater. Not the original showing, of course. ;-)

Time flies, doesn't it @John Funk hahaha. To be honest, I do not remember much from going. I remember parts of the movie, of course, but hardly anything surrounding the event :) 

But was it the 1939 version of Gone With The Wind that you saw?  That sucker is long!

Yes, it was the original! And something like 3 hours or so. I remember there being an intermission.  :-)

@Kristjan Geir Mathiesen - Servado I don't know for sure.  But the earliest one I can remember seeing was the original "Land before time".

@Jimmy Seddon  yeah it is hard to think that far back :) Unless it was some major experience. This is a good one!

@Kristjan Geir Mathiesen - Servado I should have also pointed out that 1997 was the first time I saw a Star Wars movie in theatres when they re-released them for the 30th anniversary.  My Dad took me to see a Episode IV - New Hope!

I don't remember exactly when (better off this way... it's been a long time), but for sure, my first one was The NeverEnding Story.

To this day, I still don't think I have every watched this movie in it's entirety.

Now that you mention it @Jimmy Seddon  I don't think I have either. But I have seen most of it few times :)

I remember watching it a few times. To me, one of those movies that bring lots of good memories.

I loved this movie as a child (actually I still do!).  I watched the VHS so many times there was a point where I could quote every single line in the movie word for word.

ET was the first movie I remember.  I think I even got a little scared.

I do not remember exactly.  I do remember Dad taking me to see Star Wars: A New Hope and 2001: A Space Odyssey when the Granby Theatre at Cemetary Junction in Reading was running Sci-Fi season (and that was before we saw ET in New York on its first release, I remember queuing around the block for that)

The inexactitude is that I have a feeling my grandparents took me to see a couple of Disney's before that.

As far as I remember, "Jurassic Park" was my first Hollywood movie that I saw in a theater in my hometown in India. I as 9 at that time, and it was a special "Movie Event" organized by our school and was a fun experience watching this amazing movie as a kid with all my school friends and class teachers.

Jurrasic Park was my first one as well.

That is an excellent movie with great cast!

Same as @Gokce Gursel _Snapbytes_ ... Lion King. I was about 6 years old and our dad took us to the theatre. It was amazing. I remember it was recorded with Czech subtitles. I probably could not read so fast but I remember the music... it was the best part. I still listen to this soundtrack.
There is also great musical (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewOAsUWQJvo), sorry I had to share :)

Yes, awesome music in that movie!

Mine was Annie! Great songs, iconic cast, still holds up today. Does anyone else remember the fireworks spelling out "A-n-n-i-e"? For years I thought those were real and was disappointed every fourth of July when the fireworks didn't spell anything.

Awesome movie for sure, @Monique vdB  !

I'm not sure what movies I saw at the theatre as a child but the first movie I went to with friends without a parent/grandparent/relative was:

The Incredible Shrinking Woman (Universal, 1981). One Sheet (27" X | Lot  #26170 | Heritage Auctions

I remember this as the first "scary" movie I ever saw in the theater -- as a young child, I was terrified when the shrinking woman fell down the garbage disposal!! The humor was definitely lost on me... 😆
