    holy crap hellbilly, how can you possibly remember all of that? there's no way i can remember all the films i've seen in the theater. i'd need to look at a list of every single theatrically released film starting in about '87, and even then i'm sure i'd miss a lot.

    I can't do this, my parents brought me to the movies starting in 1979 or so, as a teenager me and my friends virtually lived in the theater.
    I would not know where to start and have probably forgotten more than I can remember.
    The first film I saw in a Drive-In was in Lake George, NY-Tentacles, that I can remember clearly. Went back to Lake George last summer and was glad to see a Drive-In theater has survived there.
    Sorry I can't participate more fully here.

    I always had fond memories of going to the theater so it wasn't that hard to remember the movies. I did add 5 or 6 new titles since yesterday though.

    I'm doped up on cold meds therefore I'm too lazy to list all the films I remember, but I definitely remember the first film I saw in theatres: Disney's "Song of the South", the much sought-after, politically incorrect, racist Disney film with Brare (sp?) Rabbit. It was re-released some time in the early-mid 80s.

    Same, me and my buddy used to see at least two films a week, sometimes more, so there's no way in hell I could do this. And it'd probably be embarrassing too, as a teenager I was rabid about getting out of the house on the weekends, so I'd see whatever the hell was playing just to get out for a while. Did I pay to see shit like Barb Wire and Twister? Yes, yes I did :p

    Even if I tried, I'm sure the list wouldn't be accurate. Plus when I was in college I used to go down to Chinatown (in NY) to watch double features of movies from Hong Kong. I'm sure I didn't know what half of them were called even then, let alone now...

    If I listed every single film I ever saw at a theater I'd have to start my own site.I have had years where I saw theatrical films in the triple digits.Even last year,which was a slow one for me as I had some health issues crop up,I still saw at least 70 movies in the theater.I grew up going to the movies,first with my parents,then friends,then dates.I know a lot of people who never go anymore for one reason or another but that's just not me.It can be a pain sometimes but I still find something about going to the theater to be kind of magical.

    Everything I've seen in the last 4 years can be found in my "track the films you watch" posts. They will be the ones followed by a red upper case T.

    I really wish I could recall what movies I paid for back in the day. For each film I listed before, all except 2 or 3 (where we got in without tickets at all, love that backdoor at the old State theater) included a ticket to something else, rated PG. I hope I never supported Whoopi. It would be fun to have that info, but it's lost.:cry:

    Oh yeah, Superman was with my cousin and uncle, they paid for Superman.
    Jaws 3D was with mum, we had glasses so she must've paid for it.:D

    I actually paid to see Bio-Dome(walked out though) and Ernest Scared Stupid, so you really have nothing to be ashamed of.
