As a kid I wanted so bad to go to Willie Wonka's chocolate factory I remember begging my mom to buy Wonka bars in hopes of getting a golden ticket

By childhood I'm thinking under 10 yes? Back then (early 50 mid 60s) people just didn't go to the movies like they do now.
The movies I actually saw at the theater were
Flipper - reinforced by the TV show
Mary Poppins - I liked Flipper better
One of the Godzilla movies but I don't remember it that much.

But the movies that I feel defined my childhood would be Sunday Disney Movie of the week. Whether it was outside playing all summer and running home to catch the show or winter, skating all day, home and getting warm and maybe one of those box Chef BoyArdee pizza kits as a treat - always watched the Disney Sunday Movie, often with my friend from across the street. It was like a big treat. The opening sequence with the castle and fireworks, the music. The movie I remember best (I think they reran it alot) was the 3 lives of Tomisina. Old Yeller about killed me I cried so hard.
Kids today have so much they don't look forward to anything.

LOL, I hope my post makes sense.
OH MY GOD!!!! I LOVE that movie! I was trying to think of one & you got it! When they walk into the bar in slow motion & head straight for the bathroom to check themselves out. The huge bottle of Aqua Rock (Net, lol), the slouch purse, flirting w/the bartender. Perfect.
