  • Помню, помню "Бой с тенью". Там ещё начало прикольное было, где мужик говорит "Выиграешь бой я тебе свою машину отдам", прикольный фильм... ))

  • Wow.  I know I probably saw some before this, but the movie I remember seeing pretty vividly is Pocahantas and Toy Story.  They both came out the same year.   1995.  That seems so long ago now.  So hard to believe it's 2011 now.  

    The Last Movie I saw in theaters:  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.   With Rei :)  
    Next Movie I'm going to see in theaters:  Tentatively Red Riding Hood on March 11 with the girls from the Writers Studio. 

    Last Movie I watched:  Blades of Glory and You've Got Mail.   

  • Snow White. I was about 5 years old and Dad took me to the Kings Cinema in Bega. This place used to get 4-5 people going to each movie, and for years and years they have been trying to reopen it, because it's just sitting there empty, but that hasn't happened and probably never will. Anyhow, the witch scared the fuck out of me, I was really young, but even still, it's pretty ridiculous to think about. Anyhow, I yelled and I screamed and I kicked because I didn't like it. I don't think I had seen very much tv, and this was my first movie so everything was so BIG, and I was scared. So maybe this is why I don't really like going to watch movies...
  • It was, as far back as I can remember, the fox and the hound.

  • I believe the first movie I saw in a movie theater was The Little Mermaid. After that I had mum record Under the Sea off the radio (though the Swedish version, of course). I saw it with a childhood friend whom I no longer talk to (or even particularly like!) and I remember very little of the actual movie. I probably thought Ariel was unbelievably stupid for taking the witch's offer. Google says Beauty and the Beast came out after that and I'm fairly sure I saw that in the theater. Dad was still going abroad for work a lot at that point, often to the US, so he picked up the soundtrack for me and one of those knockoff movies on VHS. The movie wouldn't work (of course, being NTSC and NTSC-compatible TVs and VCRs being relatively rare here back then), but I adored that soundtrack. I think I saw more movies in the theatre between '89 and '93, but the next one I remember that I saw in the theater was Jurassic Park, when I was just old enough to be allowed into it in my dad's company. I liked the triceratops, and whatever her face is was my hero for being worried about it. (In my kid logic brain, she somehow knew the park was dangerous and thus knowingly risked her life for its sake. I doubt this is the case, but that's what I thought, so in my eyes she was so brave.) For a while my family did every Disney movie in the theaters, and I was pretty good at getting my mum to buy me tickets by offering to take my kid brother, but now it's been a while since I went. Not much good on anyway. I think the last movie I saw in theaters was No Reservations, which our former tenant treated me to when she was moving out. -Alexandra

  • Hm, good question! That was quite some time ago... no doubt it was one of the Chaplin comedies, or perhaps a primitive newsreel about the adventures of our esteemed President Taft in the Philippines. No, seriously... I think it would be Silent Running (check out IMDB.com, 1972). I can also barely recall seeing a Marx Bros film (NOT in the original release, no!) with my folks, shown at a local college... and The Point (ibid, 1971 although I'm sure I saw it on a theater screenat the college) as well. I can also recall seeing Star Wars when it first came out (I was ten by then). My folks and I got in early, the lines were so long that we were just standing in the back of the theater waiting for the previous group of viewers to go. We got in so early in fact that we got to see the Deathstar battle near the end of the film, my eyes must have been wide as saucers to walk in "unprepared" like that. :)
  • The first movie I can recall seeing at the Cinema was ET: The Extra Terrestrial when I was a wee nipper. I can recall being one of the few that didnt cry when he died, but when we got out of the theatre, I broke down - parents took ages to consoul me that he was alright :P
