Movie you remember seeing in a movie theater?

For me that would be the original Star Wars (A New Hope) in 1977. I distinctly remember seeing it in the summer so I wasn't quite 5 years old yet but I have several vivid memories of that evening. I remember arguing with my mom because I told her they were putting "gasoline" inside the X-Wing fighters before the final assault on the Death Star and my mom said they weren't really putting anything inside of them and then I replied "duh, yeah they are a pretending. I know!". I also remember some guy sitting behind me saying in Spanish "usa la espada estupido". This was during the scene in the Death Star trash compactor when Luke gets dragged under the water by the Dionaga.

'Fantasia', but not when it was first released in 1940, probably about 1955 aged 5. At a cinema in Bethnal Green, East London

I think it was Disney's Pinocchio, but not on its first run (probably obviously). I was probably 4 or 5, so around 1967 or 1968, and got dropped off at the theater with two of my older siblings.

Godzilla, the black and white version. They use to play movies such as this at the matinee, when I was a kid. Probably 1974 or so. Godzilla vs Mothra was a memorable one as well.

A lot of those classic films were re-released in theaters in the 50's and 60's so I know you're not that old!

As best as I can remember... Thunderball. I don't think I saw the three earlier James Bond movies in the theater.

I would say 'Jungle Book'. (The original of course).

Very vague memory of Bambi.

But the first I have real recall of is The Blue Max

Now OG has mentioned Bambi I think that was more probable. I didn't watch this one on release though! Probably mid 60's.

BD-123 it was at The Scala if you remember that?

What was the one eyed monster that Godzilla fought ? I remember the highlight being its eye getting popped. Black and white I believe. I can't find it for the life of me.

MASH 1970, I was supposed to fall asleep.
I saw a couple of movies like that when I was around 4 or 5. Mom and Dad got a big laugh for years after that.

Death Race 2000 1975 when I was 7 or 8. I remember we got kicked out of the house because my mom was hosting a baby shower so my dad took us to go see it at a drive in. In the movie I remember hospital staff pushing out patients in wheel chairs for a driver to up his score but he detoured and plowed through the staff instead.
