    I remember a few visits as a kid to see whatever Disney had re-released that year. I think pre-video times, a classic Disney was released at cinemas along with a new release
    first was Pinocchio , must have been about 5
    last movie went to the cinema to see was tomorrow never dies,

    My older brother used to take me to see films, whatever they all were I was too young then to remember a first. Two I do remember well are Damnation Alley, and Logan's Run (even with the bit of nudity), but I was a bit older for them. I also remember a peter sellers Shot In the Dark and some sort of Pink Panther Inspector Clouseau if they weren't one and the same, they would've been mostly over my head. Might've been a Carry On or something like it in there as well, ditto on over my head. It was mostly a function of him babysitting really at first.

    Love that one. Underwater football! And that line that the boy said that has connotations now that were perhaps okay at the time.

    My boarding school kind of had its own cinema so something like Quo Vadis or Bridge On The River Kwai. Or maybe The Yellow Rolls Royce with Rex Harrison.

    At a proper high street cinema maybe the first movie I saw was Every Which Way But Loose.

    Or perhaps it might have been one of the many Disney animations that kept getting reissued around that time... I've got very vague memories of watching Bambi in a cinema, but I'm not sure how old I would have been.

    I can certainly remember my first Bond film, though - The Spy Who Loved Me, again at the Scala. I saw so many great films there - Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, Flash Gordon, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, ET...

    I sure do feel my age all of a sudden!
    Yeah,nobody forgets there first Bond movie!.....Diamonds are forever 1971 at Manchesters deansgate odeon (now a supermarket i think)

    The first movie I watched on a cinema was The Wizard Of Oz when I was a kid. My parents brought me on a cinema trip for the first time and it was an unforgettable experience.

    Possibly some cartoon like the Care Bears circa 1984 - five or six at the time.

    The Vanishing in 1993. It was a 15 and I was 14 but my brother, aged 21 and his mate, 22, took me to see it. I enjoyed it. BTW it was the Hollywood version starring Kiefer Sutherland and Jeff Bridges.
