I loved that! At least your folks took you to kid flicks. For us it was just a chance to get out, but pajamas,  a bucket of KFC, maybe a rainy night and a drive-in! God i miss those days. I always thought they could bring drive-ins back in a big way, appeal to the younger crowd who wants to "hang out" and socialize. Make the sound boxes better..I think it could be lucrative if they revived it in a big way. They can market and sell anything these days. I know a few are still open around the country but it's still the old crappy screens I'm sure in small towns.

The place near us uses those boxes plus a FM transmitter. It is so cool, because now if you don't want to use those stupid boxes you can use your radio.

Yeah I heard some are using the FM which is a great idea, better if you have a good stereo system. I think a huge reason drive-ins began to decline in popularity had alot to do with the implimentation of "daylight savings" in the 70's. You gotta go at 9pm in the summer and some i guess work all week and are tired. Nobody wants to go in the winter because it's too damn cold to sit in a car for 2 hours unless your heater is running. They could have a parking space area so people could watch the movie from an inside temp controlled building or stands or something.

Plus most of them were like dirt roads and such. Can you imagine plowing the dirt roads? What a mess. But still the idea of a winter movie at the drive in is cool

>So what is the earliest one in your memory?

The earliest movie I recall my parents taking me to see at a drive in was Dumbo. It must have been a re-release because I wasn't around in 1941 when it first came out. After that I recall seeing The Bad News Bears, part of Paper Moon (I think it was a double feature with BNB because of Tatum O'Neil) and The Giant Spider Invasion, all around 1975 or so. I think the first movie I saw in a theater was Star Trek, The Motion Picture.

>Man all of you are some young pups
>I can remember seeing "The Land that Time Forgot"

 Me too. I remember begging my parents to take me to see it, then being disappointed that there was a huge downpour the night we supposed to go so we had to wait a week.

>I always thought they could bring drive-ins back in a big way,

 "This is Joe Bob Briggs reminding you that the drive in will never die!"

>that drive in in my home town burned down a few years ago...

 They built a theater on the lot where our only drive in was. Sucks because they used to hold a huge flea market there every weekend during the day.

Hard to remember that far back, but, I believe it was "Bambi." Not the original release, I may be old, but, I'm not that old, but the re-release. I will say that, that film and the other films my parents took me to see as a child, induced in me a life-long love of motion pictures. For that I thank them.

The first movie I can remember seeing all the way through in the theater was Disney's Oliver and Company, although my parents tell me that they took me to the drive-in to see This Is Spinal Tap when I was 18 months old, assuming I'd fall asleep, and I stayed awake through the whole thing.

Sad to say, but the drive-in in my town closed last year to be turned into a housing development. It had the sound on FM, which had its pros and cons-- sitting in the back of the lot, you got interference from other stations (I still remember the drama in Jurassic Park being undercut by a Pink Floyd marathon). Still, it was a great place; before the feature, it would show cartoons (including a Tracey Ullman Show-era Simpsons short), and in between features it had an old-school countdown, complete with cartoon mosquitos dying of asphyxiation. All is not lost, though; There's another drive-in about a half-hour away from me, but I have yet to try it out.

Here's this for a first movie, I just remembered the first movie I ever saw..or maybe didn't see..was "The Exorcist". My mother was pregnant with me. Also when she was pregnant with my brother she went to see Rosemary's baby, then later at dinner fell on her stomach. If there's any validity to in-utero influence..god help me

I'm sure my parents took me to see some Disney movie earlier, but first movie memories are going with my aunt to see OUTLAW BLUES starring Peter Fonda. A little later I can remember Mom taking me with her to see ORCA. No wonder I was a screwed up kid.

The oldest memory I have of a movie on TV is the 1 vs. 150 showdown between Henry Fonda and the Wild Bunch in MY NAME IS NOBODY. I didn't know the name, but always remembered the scene. I was so excited in high school when I rented it and found out what film it was from.

I was about four at the time of all of these memories.

By far one of the most obscene and ridiculous movies I've seen yet. I don't remember the entire film, just the scene where the unborn baby is extracted from the mother who is reeled in and boy that sent the male whale on a rampage..lol

What I learned from this movie:

Never p**s off a whale by killing it's unborn whale child

 But it did have Bo Derek getting her legs bitten off. No more running in slo-mo on the beach for her! :)
