About the first adult movie that made an impression on me was an Alfred Hitchcock movie, The Trouble With Harry.

It was Shirley MacLaine's first movie.

I'm sure I went to movies before this, but the earliest movie experience I recall was a double feature at the drive-in of Aristocats and Mary Poppins.

Going to the drive-in as a child. I have vague memories of "Song of the South", and "Deliverance", of all films. I remember falling asleep at the drive-in, being a little kid and all.

My mother grew up in Atlanta GA area and one of her best friends from childhood was the manager of an Atlanta movie house...my grandfather owned the Hapeville Cab company in the 50s. As a child--and I mean like 5-6 yrs old because we moved back to Texas when I was 7-- I could get a cab to take me to the movie and Joyce, my mom's friend, let me into the movie for free with free concessions...
I remember one time going to a movie and a man came and set beside me...I moved...
he followed...and tried to touch my leg...I got up and went to the usher...there were ushers at back of theaters back then and they made the guy leave...

People were really very trusting back then...

Not my earliest memory but as older child...maybe 12 or so in late 50s/early 60s--
can remember going to movie in small town in TX where we lived and sitting upstairs in the "colored" zone...
Manager came up and made us move

Still love the movies...go every weekend at least...
Took our kids when they were babies and nursed them...
our kids never misbehaved in movies and our son especially still loves to go...
Looking back I should have been a movie critic...
Being paid to watch movies is dream job...

Earliest movie experience..watching Snoopy Come Home. The place was packed !! Sometime afterward my cousin and I did return to the same theater to see the movie BEN about the little boy and rats. We were the only ones in the theater. Don't remember much about the movie itself but walking out of the theater and passing by the snack bar I do remember seeing a big black rat on the counter eating popcorn. My cousin and I walked outside and saw the staff standing around smoking. I do remember my cousin telling them about the rat in the snack bar and we were told that was Ben as he was taking a break from the movie before the next showing and I being a stupid kid believed them !! The next day at school I actually had bragged to my friends that I had seen a big movie star the night before. BEN THE RAT !! Years later I was told that the theater had a problem with rodents getting inside thanks to a massive amount of construction going on in the area at the time.

First movie I ever saw in a theatre was Walt Disney's Sword in the Stone. I was a toddler and it was the 1980s. I also remember seeing several other Walt Disney films in the 1980s that were re-releases of classics that my parents had seen when they were my age.

Lots of bad, live action Disney films. Some of them starring Kurt Russell as Dexter o' Reilly boy genius (The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes). Then there were others like The Shaggy DA, The North Avenue Irregulars, and both of the Apple Dumpling Gang movies.

The 70's were certainly a low point for the Disney dream factory.

The school holidays when the local Strand Theater would have an afternoon of cartoons.

But the weirdest memory took place later. It was 1960, and my grandmother had taken me to "the big city" and its spectacular movie house (at leased compared to our local Strand) to see "It Started In Naples" starring Clark Gable and Sophia Loren. When we walked out of the theater, a newsstand was hawking the Rochester Times-Union newspaper with the headline that Clark Gable had just died from a heart attack.
