 Iv'e seen a couple emotional reactions in theatres...during Jaws when I was a kid...I admit...I was chewing my ticket stub like gum.
And my cousin Tina RAN down the aisle after Jack nailed the cook with the axe in the SHINING.

My Dad took me to see JAWS in 1975 I was only 8 years old at the time.
And I will never forget People standing and cheering and clapping at the end of that movie.
I Had seen nothing like it before or since and neither has my Dad. Thumbup

A couple people applauded a bit when Rocky started laying into Mason in Rocky Balboa. 

People yelled, laughed and squeeled throughout Freddy VS Jason. 

People applauded King Kong defeating the last T-rex. 

Probably the strongest reaction I've seen wasn't from a film at all, but from a trailer.  First time I saw the Pearl Harbor in a packed theatre, a lot of the older folks were getting wistful and misty eyed by the end.  The full-length trailer for that film is fantastic, one of the best I've ever seen.  Too bad the film isn't...

Jim H, could you give us your thought on ROCKY BALBOA. I'm thinking of catching this over the holiday.

I grew up in small-town Kilmarnock, Virginia.  One movie theatre for approximately 50miles in all directions.
One of the factors that gets people applauding at films is lack of other outlets, I think.
Anyway, the one film I attended several times wherein the audience spontaneously applauded -- at the race results, no less -- was . . . Walt Disney's "The Horse in The Grey Flannel Suit" --
I can't even remember the plot to this picture, but recall vividly how great it felt to be in a group of people all clapping because the underdog horse had won this sqeaky-close race.
And, of course, everyone screamed and yelled at Hammer's "The Reptile", but that's not applause.  We all used to hide behind the seats & otherwise hugely react during horror/science-fiction flicks.  Hell, people still do that here in Colorado.  But applause is a rare kettle of fish . . .

I'm still a bit muddled about it, actually.  I think I'd get a better opinion if I see it again, which probably won't happen til it hits DVD.

But some general thoughts...

The writing is mostly good.  There are a few clunkers and cheese bits here and there though.  Stallone and everyone else is excellent..  With the exception of the guy who plays his son.  He ranges from pretty good to (in a single scene) awful.  The 'villain' is given a bit of humanity early on, but then this is apparently totally forgotten, which bugged me a bit.  I'd have liked more time with him.

Stallone has a couple of longer speeches, which are pretty good.  The overall storyline is good, and more believable than you'd guess.  It seems like there is going to be a romantic subplot, but there isn't, which is great.  The cinematography is usually pretty, but I thought the hand held bits were too common.  Film is slow building, but does get where its going.  It feels slower than the original Rocky, actually, which is kind of amazing. 

The fight sequence at the end is very well done, though the MTV style in the middle gets to be a bit hectic.  Still, extremely well choreographed and shot.

Overall, as a serious movie, I'd say it is better than all of the other sequels, but it is not as good as the original film.  I don't think Stallone will ever top the original, it's pretty much his Citizen Kane. 

So yeah, Rocky Balboa gets my vote to see in theatres.  It would be especially worth it if you get with a crowd who really gets into it...  I suspect the early showings with huge Rocky fans were awesome.

* The original ROCKY - I saw it during its original theatrical run when I was 12 years old.  The theater was sold out and the entire audience was on it's feet clapping and cheering for Rocky during the final fight scene.  It was like being at a live boxing match.  When I saw ROCKY BALBOA on oipening night las week, it was a similar experience except that the audience didn't stand up . . . but they were clapping and cheering during the fight. 

* STAR WARS - When I saw this during its original theatrical run, the audience cheered during the attack on the Death Star and also during the closing credits.

* JAWS - The audience cheered when Roy Scheider killed the shark.

I kept considering the fact that "Rocky" must have been a good one in the theater.  You get to feel for Rocky, because he is someone given an extraordinary opportunity, someone who seems to have wasted a great deal of his life, but he reaches down deep to find a lot of strength and intensity.  The audience does not even know if he has enough to win, but they are going to applaud how far he came to try.

I saw "Rocky IV" in the theater and remember everyone clapping and cheering.  Of course, in that one you have a drug-enhanced Soviet monster as the enemy, along with Rocky outrunning KGB agents as he trains for the fight by pounding through deep snow.  Oh, and the DJ robot dancing around and coming on to Paulie.
