My mother took me to a little theater somewhere in middle NE in about 1950 and we saw a Tarzan flick featuring a gigantic spider w web. From the same period was one about a women's prison or maybe sanitarium where a kitten was killed.
Pretty scary stuff for a kid but I surely have remembered it for a long time.

My earliest memory is going to the Warner Theater with my mom to see Pinocchio; I was probably about 3.

I remember Bambi.

There were 2 movies, the main movie and a second movie. There were newsreels and cartoons. They collected money for the Will Rogers Institute. There was no stadium seating.

My earliest memory is the movie I did not see. The entire family went to see Ben Hur but said it was too long and I would fall asleep.

The earliest I remember seeing a film in theaters is Beauty and the Beast and that was in a real theater that only had like one screen. Man was that a great film. Still my favorite animated movie to this day.

I remember my dad carrying me out the theater after watching ET... I don't exactly remember anything about the movie.

I also remember being in a classy theater for a movie that had an intermission break. It was during the 80s, I can't think of a popular movie from that time with intermission-- Gandhi maybe? Needless to say I slept through all of it.

Die Hard (I was 7 or 8) was the first movie I remember actually understanding and paying attention to from start to finish.

Sitting on my Dad's lap watching "Shaft". We lived in NYC so I recognized all of the locations. Its one of my earliest memories. I was about 3 at the time.
