      The earliest movie I remember seeing in theaters was "Song of the South" when Disney re-released it in 1986...before Disney got all politically correct and barred the movie from ever being released in North America again.

        Maybe one of the reasons I love the 80's so much... I was lucky enough to see a BUNCH of animated movies in theaters when I was little, many of them with my friends too.

        The Care Bears Movie (1985) (think I was almost 4)
        Care Bears Movie II (1986)
        My Little Pony: The Movie (1986)
        Rainbow Brite & the Star Stealer
        Bambi
        Cinderella
        Alice in Wonderland
        Lady & the Tramp
        101 Dalmatians
        An American Tail
        The Chipmunk Adventure (1987)
        The Land Before Time
        Oliver & Company
        Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)
        All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989)

        are the ones I remember seeing for sure. A lot of the Disney ones were from a kids summer film festival the theater was having in '86. I still remember it very well... holding on to the ticket book and looking at what each day's movie or double feature was going to be while waiting for the movie to start, and my friends there with me. They are good memories. : )

          First clear memory of seeing a movie in a cinema, Star Wars. I was maybe 4 or 5 and the light saber battle stuck in my mind. I was so lucky to be a kid when I was.

                I think my first movie in the theater was Mortal Kombat in 1995. I would have been 5 years old. I'm not 100% sure if it's the first one but I can't think of any earlier than that. We played the games on SNES since they were released so we were super pumped to see it. Me, my Dad, my brother, and my cousin all went and I loved it.

                  I was told by my mother that my first movie in theaters was ET. My first remembered movie is Heathcliffe the movie. I swear I saw that in theaters or either Oliver and Company or American Tale. I remember seeing these in the theaters, but for hte life of me can't get an idea as to what year each film was.

                        The Lion King (1994) I remember I fell asleep and grandpa had to take me home. He had a soccer match to watch, so he didn't complain, lol.

                          Lion King I remember and I also remember the Flintstones. The Flintstones more so because it was one of my first experiences with some real jerks, talking and screaming at various parts of the movie.

                            The first movie I saw in theatres was Toy Story 2.
                            I can't think of anything worth putting as a signature.

                                As for the first (and perhaps only) time I saw a movie in a drive-in theatre, I would say 1996, when I was nine years old. My cousin Tracy (yes, the same one who took me to see Aladdin at the Regal Cinema Seven, now known as the University of Northwestern Ohio Event Center, four years earlier - see the first post I've made in this thread) took us to a drive-in theatre in Kenton, about a few miles northeast of Lima to see Twister and Independence Day, in that exact order. I remember there being a couple of vintage drive-in ads in between the two movies, and I remember going into the concession building with my older sister, remembering they had a couple of video-game machines in there. I even remember us entering the drive-in about three quarters into Twister, and leaving there about halfway (I think) into Independence Day.

                                  I know that there were others, but the only one that I can absolutely remember was when my mom took me to the mall to see Masters Of The Universe in 1987. I don't care what anyone says. It's a good movie. Sure, it's cheesy, but I seriously doubt that it was made to win a bunch of awards.
                                  Don't pay any attention to the evil spirited and dead of heart. They're not worth your time.

                                      I knew ET was 1982. I was only curious about my first "remembered" movie. I don't remember seeing ET given my age when I saw it. I wasn't even a full year old yet, but it is my first movie in the theater.

                                      So, based on that list, I guess my first remembered movie would be Heathcliffe: The Movie.

                                        I don't know exactly which movie was my first, but I'm going to guess that it was Pinocchio's re-issue in 1985. From about this time through the 1990s, my mom took me to see all those Disney re-releases. I used to think back then as a kid that Disney was an old movie company that no longer made movies. Of course if you think about it, all those movies were re-released in those years with little or no new stuff.

                                        Re-issues I remember seeing were:
                                        Pinocchio
                                        Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
                                        Cinderella
                                        Peter Pan
                                        Bambi
                                        Sleeping Beauty
                                        101 Dalmatians

                                        From researching all the 1980s re-releases on imdb, looks like it probably was Pinocchio.

                                          I remember going to the movies as a preschooler and spending the entire time hyperactively jumping all over the seats, I have no idea what movie that was though. The first movie that I actually sat all the way through was Milo and Otis, which is a movie I still love!!
