Now Showing...

PapaBear and I were sitting here watching the state hockey tournament (his favorite TV 'event' of the year) and got to talking about seeing movies in the theater. My earliest memory of going to a movie was seeing Bambi. It's such a faint memory that I questioned whether it was a real memory. I did a quick search and sure enough - One of the times Bambi was in the theater was 1982. I was five.

The next movie I remember seeing in the theater was Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The other choice that night was Die Hard. I was in grade school so the rabbit movie was the obvious choice. The third movie I saw was Dick Tracy for Tasha's birthday party.

What was the first movie YOU saw in the theater?

I know I seen movies before this one, but the one that comes to mind was Forrest Gump.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. First one ever, but obviously not the first time it was in a theatre...seems how I was younger than 5 in 1982 ;o)

The first one I remember is Jungle Book. I went with my friend Lori after our last day of Bible School at her church. (St. Nicholas in Carver!) I also remember seeing the Aristocats with my mom on my 9th birthday. Fun memories!

The first movie I remember seeing in the theatres was "Snow White". I remember being SOOOOO afraid of that evil witch in the black hood that I turned around and stared at the back of the theatre... and realizing that I could still see her up there above on the projector glass. She was tinier though and less scarey! =0)

Some of us have to go WAY back! I think it would have been "Misty." I remember watching Jungle Book at a Drive-In but I'm certain "Misty" was before that.

The Aristocats...I still love that movie and so do my kids. We went to the city to see it with my cousins...we lived in the country. I can still remember the lady in the department store yelling at me for going up the down escelator...I was so scared because I became separted from my mom. Funny memories.
