    What's the first film you can remember going to the cinema to watch?

    Mines is Batman and Robin, the one with George Clooney.

    I remember going when I was five or six and thinking it was awesome. After watching the Chris Nolan and Tim Burton films I realise how wrong I was and that it isn't really that good. It still better than Batman Forever at least

    I remember seeing Hook in the cinema when I was very young. I found it scary and ended up crying :o:

    I can't remember the first film I went to the cinema to watch :-(
    My earliest memory of watching a film at home was watching The Lion King and crying my eyes out at it!

    crikey erm......

    I went to see the Little Mermaid about 5 times at the cinema when it came out. I was obsessed. Begged my mam to take me over and over and over. I'd have been 5 I guess as it was a 1989 film.

    Also I went to see The Land Before Time at the cinema. That was a 1988 film but dunno if it was released in the UK then, or in 1989. Anyway it would have been one of the earliest I saw.
    I distinctly remember going to school on Monday and the teacher asking us all what we had done over the weekend, and I said I had been to see the land before time, and the teacher kept saying "the LAMB before time? I've never heard of that." I had to bellow LAAAANNNDDDD at her about 12 times before she understood me, and even then she just looked blank.
    Deaf teacher!
    My 4 year old son is obsessed with that film now. I think I've seen it 5 times in the past week lol.

    I don't remember first one but first I think of whenever asked about films is Dirty Harry. If it was to be only film I ever watched I'd be ok with it.

    I loved that film!

    I don't remember going to the cinema when I was that young... I remember going to see a play, sooty and sweep go to space or something. Just checked and that was 1988 - 1995- so I was at the most 6. I was very impressed!

    I remember seeing Thumbelina when I was very young, apparently that came out in 1994 so I was 2 years old...after that probably the Disney cartoon version of Hercules which is 1997. I definitely remember that one because we played the game of it at primary school after it came out!

    cant remenber the first one in a cinema, think it could have been batman and robin, it was one of the first ones anyway, watched it when i was on holiday with my mum and my sister, and mum only took us cos she fancies george clooney and it was raining.

    the first film i ever watched was the bfg, which terrified me - the bloodbottler is scary when youre 2 years old, but i watched it pretty much every week as i loved it and still have the original video it was recorded on (with the snowman on the end, which i found boring, and when adverts were actually pretty good), its still my fave film as its got huge sentimental value to it. the second film i remember watching was fantasia, my dad loved it and put a huge film poster from it on my bedroom wall (think thats where my love of elephants came from, that and dumbos pink elephants).
