Bambi and Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
The first “adult” films i remember seeing were A Patch of Blue and Wait Until Dark.
Saturday Night Fever re-run, empty theater. :)
I think it might have been Bedknobs and Broomsticks, not 100% sure though.
i think it was dumbo :D
DUMBO for me as well
I don’t recall, but according to the parents, The Land Before Time.
Fievel: AmeRicaN tail. 1986. was a two-year-old little dude . MADE ME fall in love with animation and don bluth. the theatre no longer exists.
Alice in Wonderland
The Addams Family
The Lion King
The King of Hill
The Lion King, and like chanandre I was a two year-old baby when I first went to the movies.
Some vague Disney cartoon.
But my first childhood cinema experience is watching a 1985 local/Indonesian movie called ‘Ari Hanggara’, based on a true story about parents abusing their son to death.
CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG, THE LOVE BUG, THE PARENT TRAP (Hayley Mills version)
I also saw CHISUM when I was pretty young. That must’a been the first non-Disney I saw.
I don’t really remember the first one, actually. But I remember that my parents used to leave me every sunday afternoon at the local cinema where they usually showed disney movies, and that would be Pinocchio and Snow White.
But at home, my father had a small collection of vhs (mostly films with charles bronson, i never understood the fascination…) that were quite violent for a little child, but it was just a matter of time for me to know how to use the vhs recorder and I remember quite well the first movie I watched alone, hiding from my parents. It was Ken Russell’s Tommy, and it changed my life!
The first film that I remember seeing that I actually also was critiquing (not just mindlessly watching) was the 1939 b&w version of The Man in the Iron Mask (dir. by James Whale). I was intrigued by its phtotography, action, and the creepy iron mask itself. I gave the film top marks. My friend I was watching it with fell asleep (on tv late night), but I was spellbound. I was about 6. Day that I started to become a cinephile.
Electra Glide in Blue or Dirty Harry.
it was a Disney cartoon: Bambi. But the first movie with actors i saw was Superman II, when i was 5 or six years old. Curiously, when i saw “Teorema” 20 years later, the face of the leading actor was familiar in my mind…General Zod (aka Terence Stamp).
At the theatre, Snow White and Seven Dwarfs and on TV Death Takes a Holiday.
I recently rewatched The Man in the Iron Mask and found it stood up very well to my early memories of it. Good one.
I think the first I can remember was the Disney animated Christmas special Kalle Anka och hans vänner önskar God Jul (From All of Us to All of You).
Jurassic Park 2 :(
The NeverEnding Story
I probably watched it at least a dozen times when I was a kid.
I went to see George of the Jungle when I was four. I’m not proud of it. At the time, however, I thought going to the movies was the best thing ever. Not much has changed on that front. I was always very quiet in the movie theater because I was mesmerized by the whole experience. I would actually try to shush other people who were talking.
The Big Blue
Sam Peckinpah’s “Convoy”. I was around 8.
My earliest recollections are of Sink the Bismarck, Houdini, Old Yeller, An American Tail and The Incredible Mr. Limpet. That is, of course, excluding the usual Disney animations that seem issued to all children at birth. I wish I could remember more.
Hmmm, probably Disney’s Robin Hood
