I remember seeing Grease, Jaws 2, and Star Wars in the theater as a kid. Those are my earliest memories. I don't recall which was first.

1st movie I remember going to see was "2001 A Space Odyssey" at the drive in theater with my parents 1968 and I was 5 at the time. The 1st movies that I went to see with my friends were "Towering Inferno" and "Earthquake" in 1974 and they had the new surround sound at our theater.

The earliest drive-in movie I can remember, we saw "Poseiden Adventure", but I remember "White Lightening" too.

It was either Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid or 2001 A Space Odyssey. I think both are 1969... so not sure which was first.

Bambi with my siblings; older brother was in charge. Back then parents dropped us off and picked us up later.

The one that stands out is Die Monster Die. I watched a woman raise her dress at the urinal next to me and pee standing up. They called them cross -dressers back then.

My dad took me to’Guns of Navarone’ when I was 12.(1961)
Could’ve hit some drive-ins before that, but don’t remember the movies!

Jeez, I can't remember that far back. I do remember I wished they made a new Jerry Lewis comedy every day. When I was a real little kid at the theater they showed a preview for the movie "What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?" It scared the shit outta me.

The first I can remember seeing was The Black Hole, 1979. But I know for a fact I saw Star Wars in the theater.

I remember it well. It was in 1974. Herbie Rides Again. The first time at a real movie. We were poorer than dirt. I was able to go with our church. The owner of the local theatre invited all the congregations children to go for a free show. My sister and I had a great time. First time having that theatre popcorn too. Great Sunday afternoon. I think the next one I went to was the "The Breakfast Club" about 10 years later. All grown up then. I think I was 17 years old at the time. Times were tight back then. lol
