    Got to thinking bout what was the very first encounter with the silver screen...and the earliest one I could come up with was Bambi. Man, I cried out my eyes on that one!

    Disney tried to smooth things out by the dad doing his monologue thing at the the end...but, I didn't buy it!

    So, thought to ask what was the earliest movie you could come up with that stuck with you though the years.

    Q

    The first movie I saw in a theatre was Johnny Tremaine.

    My older brother Ed took me.

    The first movie I remember seeing was Roger Corman's 'The Fall of the House of Usher' with my Mom and Dad at a local drive-in.

    I remember Bambi, I cried when the evil hunter kill his father. Don’t think I didn’t remember that when I was hunting deer myself. But I really remember the teasers for the horror movies that scared me so bad I crawled under the seats at the theater. Yes I was 8 years old in 1960 and I could do that. There is one in particular that terrified me. All I can remember is a black-n-white movie. It was at night, of course, a lady hears something comes out of her 2nd floor bedroom makes it to the head of the stairs looks down and screamed, I was under the seat .00005 of a second later. I sure wish I could figure out what movie that was because I would love to actually watch it. I vaguely remember the narrator intoning something about a brain eating monster.

    The Lion King is the first movie I remember watching in the theater. I came out and as we were walking to the car, I started sobbing. When my mom asked what was wrong, I said, "Is... Is my little brother going to throw me off a cliff?"

    The first and only movie I've ever seen in the theater was Milo And Otis. I was about 5 at the time.

    Memory's a bit fuzzy on it... Dad dragged me down to the art theater in downtown Cincy to see 2001 A Space Odyssey. My parents were weird; they weren't into sports at all (tough for a kid who was interested), but they'd let us watch damn near any adult-level movie.

    Earliest one I can remember from my crumb cruncher days was Jason & the Argonauts.
    My Mother always told the story of how I stood up at the end and gave the show a
    standing ovation.

    It was the only film to be shot in the widescreen Cinemiracle process, which came with a seven-track stereophonic soundtrack

    Saw it in Graumans Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

    It was either the Aristocats or Jungle Book. I can't remember which came first but I remember seeing both at about the same time.

    I really don't know for certain. I was fond of the Disney film The Jungle Book at a really young age, so I must have seen it in the theater when it came out (hence, too young to really remember it). I had the Disney record, though, and played it often.

    I could have sworn there was a sequel film called More Jungle Book, but I see now that it was just the record and read-along book to gauge interest in a follow-up movie. As it sold so poorly, any idea to turn it into a film was dropped. It also featured Phil Harris as Baloo and Louis Prima as King Louie, and it had a couple of cool songs on it.
