    @xavier just talking about Jaws made me think of this...
    I was a baby! My parents had NO IDEA how fucked up this movie was, I sat in the lobby until it was over....I didn't even see it again until I was probably 30...

    That's fucking awesome.

    I have vague memories of seeing "Return of the Jedi" in the theater. Also watched "ET" at a Drive In. I'm guessing it's one of those. Not sure which came out first.

    Flipper, but it was a drive-in so probably a year after the theater release.

    The first movie I remember ever seeing was Herbie the Lovebug, at a drive-in with about 15 other kids.

    My two older brothers took me to see this when I was 8 years old. I was terrified of the shore for years afterwards.:shakey:

    I don't remember the first movie, but I remember my dad taking me to see "Red Dawn". I was a young girl in love with C. Thomas Howell and Patrick Swayze, so it was great for me. My dad told me later that he almost walked out because it was so bad. :giggle:

    I remember trying to read the exorcist.... Couldn't do it... Too scared. I think the first movie I saw was when my older brother snuck me into the midnight movie to see led Zeppelin song remains the same... It was hilarious for an 11 yr old. The place was nuts. Sold out, people even broke through the exit door halfway through the movie lol

    I don't remember the first movie but, it must have been a Disney movie of some type, Bambi or Dumbo or Song Of The South.

    Back in the 60s/early70s my folks used to go to the drive-in and make me go to sleep in the back seat after the Bugs Bunny cartoons went off.

    My cousin and mom took us four kids, in a VW bug, to a drive in to see Rosemary's Baby. My mother wasn't the best when it came to common sense!
    I was about 3 and have hazy memories about it.

    The first movie I remember seeing in a theater was Star Wars. My first drive-in was probably Alien, my father took me when I was 6 or 7.
