This is nigh on impossible for me so...

It's hard enough for me to name the ones I have seen in the last month!!

That being said, one day I should sit down and think really hard and try and remember.

Well, since I've been seeing movies in the theater for about 40 years, this would be quite a long list.

Here is a very small sample of movies I saw in the the theater.  I chose to post these because they are not necessarily "big name" films . . . they are middle-of-the road, perhaps forgotten, possibly bad, often overlooked.  This list is definitely more interesting than if I started listing stuff like THE GODFATHER, STAR WARS, JAWS, and RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK.

* SASQUATCH (from Sunn Classics!)

* FUTUREWORLD

* THE THREE MUSKETEERS / THE FOUR MIUSKETEERS (double feature - - yup, the Michael York, Oliver Reed versions!)

* BLUE WATER, WHITE DEATH (a shark documentary that tried to capitalize on the success of JAWS)

* RACE WITH THE DEVIL / W.W. AND THE DIXIE DANCE KINGS (a rather odd double feature)

* LOGAN'S RUN

* THE CASSANDRA CROSSING

* DON'T GO IN THE HOUSE

* MOTHER'S DAY

* WILLARD (original)

* BEN

* THE OCTAGON (Chuck Norris!)

* OUTLAW BLUES (have you ever heard Peter Fonda sing country and western songs?)

* THE OSTERMAN WEEKEND

* THE CHEAP DETECTIVE

* DUCHESS AND THE DIRTWATER FOX

* MURDER BY DEATH

* OLD DRACULA

* THE MAIN EVENT (Ryan O'Neal and Barbra Streisand . . . in a romantic comedy about boxing????)

* HITLER: THE LAST TEN DAYS

* THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND OF CAPTAIN NEMO

* THE WONDERFUL LAND OF OZ (see my comments in the CHILDHOOD FAVORITES discussion)

* THE CHRISTMAS THAT ALMOST WASN'T

* MAKE THEM DIE SLOWLY (now on DVD as CANNIBAL FEROX)

* THE EVIL DEAD (I'm sort of proud of this one)

* THE TRIAL OF BILLY JACK

* XANADU

* UP IN SMOKE / THE WARRIORS (another odd double feature)

* THE LEGACY (with the infamous tracheotomy scene)

* THE ISLAND (the modern day pirate movie starring Michael Caine . . . why isn't this on DVD?)

* MEATBALLS

* HOOPER

* GATOR

* THE BAD NEWS BEARS (original)

* BASKET CASE

* CHALLENGE TO BE FREE

* THE CREATURE FROM BLACK LAKE

* KRULL

* HOUSE OF WAX (the original, in 3-D, during a re-release)

* FUN WITH DICK AND JANE (George Segal, Jane Fonda version)

* PETE 'N' TILLIE (Walter Matthau and Carol Burnett)

* MEL BROOKS SILENT MOVIE

* THE ADVENTURE OF SHERLOCK HOLMES SMARTER BROTHER

* KING FRAT (why isn't this cheap ANIMAL HOUSE rip-off on DVD?)

* HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS

* KING KONG (the Jeff Bridges, Jessica Lange fiasco)

And that's just a short list.

There are many more I'm sure, but as of now - thats all I could think of. There was another movie I've seen, I think it was an Italian King Kong rip-off about a giant Bigfoot. The title escapes me but I do remember one scene in particular with Bigfoot saving his love interest who is falling down a elevator shaft.
And another King Kong movie I've seen, of Asian origin I think, with Kong fighting a mechanical Kong. I don't remember the title either.

I did see Star Wars Episode 4-6 in the theater come to think of it, when it was re-released. 

I'll Jumanji, Men In Black and The Matrix to my list.

There's more I don't remember well enough to put a title to. Mostly westerns and WW2 movies from the 60s. I was a military brat back then and got to see many movies at the base theaters, cheap. Very popular ones would cycle through periodically, which is how I got to see 'Gone With the Wind' and 'Mary Poppins' after their initial theatrical runs.

Edit:
The movie  with Liz Taylor I erroneously listed as DEATH WATCH is called NIGHTWATCH(1973):

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070444/fullcredits

Being as no one caaught the error-it IS as obscure as you might think.
The one with Bob Newhart was FIRST FAMILY (1981)  Gilda Radner was in it too!
The Train Robber film with John Wayne was-duh-the TRAIN ROBBERS (1973).
