    Pretty sure it was Home Alone in the Adelphi in Dundalk. The earliest one I definitely remember is Aladdin in 1992.

    Is this thread is making anyone else feel old?

    It'd be The Jungle Book for me in the Wexford cinema in 1984 followed the next year by The Black Cauldron. My mother still delights in telling people how I jumped into her lap when Shere Khan roared for the first time. In my defence, I was only 3 or 4 years old!

    Santa Claus the movie in December 1985.

    Not a big cinema goer. I thing the last James Bond film was the last time I went.

    Mrs Doubtfire... :-D The day after my communion as a treat!

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,584 PandaX9

    Same as some earlier poster here, Space Jam! So awesome. but as I type this, I am getting weird flashbacks of the Rugrats movie where dill was born and they had a cart in a jungle with that "oo ee oo ah ah tin tang walla walla bing bang" song on.. Might've been my second movie

    Lethal Weapon 3 in Mosney :pac:

    Only scene I remember from it in the cinema was when Gibson was acting like a dog to the big ol' mean guard dog.

    Best film I saw in the cinema was definitely Jurassic Park, the hype around then was insane and hearing everyone go "oooooh" and "aaaaaah" when the dinosaurs appeared added to it.

    They used to re-release Star Wars, before it became TV fodder, long before the '97 rebirth of the franchise via the Special Editions.

    I remember one of my first films being Star Wars and Superman.

    Not all cool though,

    I also remember The Cat from Outer Space and Bedknobs and Broomsticks.. :(

    First movie I went to sans parents was Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan, with some friends, in '82, they say I whimpered a little at Spocks death.... I refute this!

    Diamonds are Forever in The Classic (then The Kenilworth) in 1971. Hooked for life...

    Home Alone was my first film I remember.

    Still holds good nostalgic value to this day. :D

    Shrek back in 2001. The only part I remember seeing in the cinema is when he roars at the start :P

  • Registered Users Posts: 989 ✭✭✭ SuperGrover

    It was either Pete's Dragon or Bugsy Malone

    Bugsy Malone was way better but not sure which I saw first

  • Registered Users Posts: 866 ✭✭✭ LuckyFinigan

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris

    Lion King

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,654 ✭✭✭✭ B.A._Baracus

    best, eh?

    Has to be I now pronounce of Larry and Chuck.
    Oh, not because the movie itself was great. But see, you must remember at one point the camera directly focuses on jessica biel in underwear.

    Now imagine the above on a big 40ft screen. But excuse me people, I must go and fap now.

    Can't remember specifically what the first movie was - I remember my uncle taking me to see a movie when he visited London when I was a child but for the life of me I can't remember what that film was.

    I do remember going to see Independance Day, probably before my Mother took me to see Jurassic Park 2 (We saw the first at home when it came out on video, unfortunately, would have been a golden moment to see that first in the cinema).
