    Default First film you remember seeing and where.

    I thought I would start this thread to discuss memorable films and old cinemas.
    There are a few films I remember seeing around 1971 when I was about 5 years old. Of those the one which really impressed me was "Where Eagles dare". I've watched it many times over and still love it. Its good old wartime adventure from start to end. The cinema I went to see it at was called the "Godiva" in Canley in Coventry. I now live in tile hill just down the road and pass the "Godiva" every day which is now a Casino. I must go in the old place sometime to see how its changed. I'd love to hear from others who have fond cinema going memories.
    Please share the nostalgia.

    First film I went to see was The Addams Family back in 1991 at an Odeon cinema in Liverpool. For some reason I remember being a bit nervous which sounds a bit daft and the sweet smell of popcorn throughout the place. I don't remember it being a particularly clean place but I guess it had its charm. I ended up loving the whole experience and was eager for my mum and dad to take me again as soon as possible. The place isn't there anymore, I keep meaning to get myself back there to see what now stands there but it is away from the city centre and a little awkward to get to.

    I was taken to see Star Wars when I was seven years old. Life would never be the same again.

    The first film I went to without an adult was ghostbusters. It was the only film bring shown that week at that cinema. I remember buying a full colour programme and other souvenirs in the foyer. Kind of like the theatre. Even the popcorn came in a ghostbusters themed bag. I still have the programme.

    First was probably one of the Disney films but not sure, the first memorable one would be Planet of the Apes.

    First movie I saw at the cinema was E.T. at Monkseaton pictures (no longer exists). First film I went to see without an adult was 'An American Tale' at Whitley Bay Play House. The Play House still exists but has been revamped a few times over the years and I don't think it shows films any more. It's reverted to a place that actually shows plays and has live music etc.

    First one I saw was Bedknobs and Broomsticks in 1976 or 1977 at the Classic Cinema in Durham followed by Star Wars in 1977 with my friend and his mother.

    I like the look of the Classic/Robins Cinema.

    It's not been a cinema for a long time, it closed in the 90s and has been a pub and failed music venue as well as standing empty since then. Fine building though.
