            Ha! Snow White in 83 for me! I was 3 or 4 so all I truly remember is the gold textured background of the opening credits:

              In my case, it was Return of the Jedi (or so I think). I was about 5 and since then Star Wars changed my life.

              I also have vague memories of things like "The Gods must be Crazy" and other movies I did see in a theater when they were new. Goonies, The Never Ending Story, Ghost Busters (I really liked that one, I had to sit on the floor cause the theater was so full).

              I saw ET a few years later after it was released, in a auto cinema (hahahah kinda miss those).

              Good times...


              I think mine was Return Of The Jedi too but for me it wasn't the original release it was brought back to theatres. Wow....lol how old are you??? Anyway I was born in 86 so this was prob around 95? It was 3D....lol not 3D 2012 but 3D with half Red and half Blue cardboard glasses. It was a single theatre lol remember those? thats all we had in our town and the line to get into the movie was literally a street long, I remember having to show up an hour and a half early to see a movie. aaaw I miss that

                For me, it was either "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" or "The Little Mermaid". Both movies came out the exact same year (1989).

                  Ghostbusters 2 at a drive in. I just checked the release date and it was in 89, so I was about 2 and a half years old. Surprised I remember!

                    Mine was The Nightmare Before Christmas, and I was about the same age. It's one of my earliest memories, too.

                    The next ones I remember were The Lion King (1994), Toy Story (1995), Hercules (1997), and The Rugrats Movie (1998), followed by The Phantom Menace, South Park, Pokemon, and Toy Story 2 all in 1999. Pretty sure I saw more, like at least one of the Star Wars re-releases in 1997, but I don't remember anything else at all before Y2K.

                                Star Trek: The Motion Picture (first Star Trek movie 1979). Theaters back then would show a Disney cartoon before the main attraction, and I remember liking the cartoon much more than the movie. That first Star Trek was awful!
                                I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

                                          What would make you think that *eyes glow red* I don't think my mom taking her unborn son to such a movie would effect any thing *demonic voice* Do you?
