Forums - Movies Discussion - What was the First Movie You Saw in Theaters?

Tagged games:

Earliest movie I remember seeing in a theatre was The Empire Strikes back.  I was 5.  I couldn't fully follow the story, but I remember really being into every scene with Yoda in it.

Probably a Disney animated movie in the christmas week.

My parents used to go to the drive in all the time. I recall going to see movies like Honey I Shrunk The Kids and looking in the rearview and seeing hardcore porn playing on the second screen behind us.

My mom would say "Don't look back there" but... titties. I probably missed half the movies we went to see. And there were a few times I remember hiding in the trunk so I could see the movie for free!

I recall seeing RotJ, Honey I Shrunk The Kids, Who's That Girl, Roadhouse, Evil Dead 2, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Innerspace, Masters of the Universe, and maybe a few more at that drive-in. Great memories.

I should call my mom and thank her for making such great memories. 🤗

I don’t remember the very first movie I saw but the earliest one I remember was in 2001. We saw Kiss of the Dragon and after it was finished we snuck into Scary Movie 2.

Ha least first movie I remember.  Kindergarten birthday party movie and dinner.

Probably one I can't remember. The earliest one I do remember was Mighty Joe Young in 1998 (I was 7).

I haven't the slightest clue. I was born in 1980, but the oldest movies I definitely remember seeing in theaters were Predator and RoboCop, both in 1987 (yes, my parents were lax when it came to what kind of movies I was allowed to watch). I remember various other trips to the theater in the late 80s as well. However, they almost certainly brought me with them to see other, earlier movies. Supposedly, I did see Return of the Jedi. My mother also told me that she took me to see The Last Unicorn the year prior, which supposedly made me cry.

The actual first? I’m honestly not sure. The first movie I distinctly remember seeing at the theater was Lion King in 1994 when I was 5, but I definitely saw others before that, I just don’t remember what they were. I remember alot of movies that I watched as a kid and know several that released before Lion King, but I don't know if I watched them in theater or on VHS or TV later on.
