I'd have to give it to 'Heat'. First time I've seen an audience give a scene a standing ovation (the shootout with the LAPD).

Honorable mention goes to 'The Matrix'--we saw it on opening night, no one knew what the actual Matrix was. When it was revealed in the film, EVERYONE'S mind was blown.

As a kid I was dropped off at the theatre to see 'Herbie Goes Bananas' (about the car), and was blown away to see a theatre full of crying adults for 'Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan' (the death of Spock).

Too MANY!
The first StarTrek..Raiders of the Lost Arc.
As a child, 'The Greatest Story Ever Told' and Blubber.

But sitting in a crowd for ''Somewhere In Time'', the 80s...you could hear in the silence
the hearts breaking and rolling to the front of the theater.
Same with 'Robin and Marion', '76...not a dry eye in the place, Audrey Hepburn's last movie.

My favorite movie experience was a 2 am showing of Austin Powers on the strip in Vegas. Full of drunks laughing our heads off till my side hurt.

It's Jaws. I saw a man jump completely out of his seat.

The thread title is 'Best movie you have watched in a movie theater' - no mention of a specific time period.

"Star Wars", May 1977
