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.
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.
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
