Just wondering if anyone else shows their passion with a similar collection. I have been collecting them since around 1985 or at least that is how far back I can remember starting and I have not missed one stub since...not one! I have around 400 in the 20 years collecting. It comes to about 2 movies a month every month for 20 years.

So what do you think?

If I were you I would hang them all on my wall and make a "wallpaper" out of them.

I'm pretty sure we've had a similar thread like this before....but that search button is so heavy (and it had been a while).

I have all my stubs since September 97.
And in that time I already have more stubs than 400. I've averaged anywhere from 1 to 1.5 movies a week in that time (depending on the year).

I've been collecting my movie stubs since about 1993. The plan is to put them all into some kind of an album, but right now they're all in envelopes. I figure that a book of stubs will look kinda boring, so I've also been clipping out the movie ad from the paper, to include with the corresponding stub.

Be a good project for the old folk's home.

I've been collecting movie stubs since 1993. I think Speed is my first stub. I have never counted them. Lately, I haven't gotten to the theater as often as I'd like, but a few years ago I added all the admission prices up and it came to a pretty hefty number.

I've been collecting stubs since '85 or '86 myself. I have them all in a little box that holds ALL my tickets (concerts, ballgames etc.). I never thought about why or what I would do with them, I just did it. Alot of the '80's stubs I have were from a theater (called the Interboro, I believe it was a UA theater) that used cheap ticket paper and those are all faded now - can't even make out what half of those movies were. Every few years I'll go through the box and look through all the stubs and try and remember what that day was like, who I was with, etc. Then I try to find something better to do, like watch paint dry or something.

I've currently only have mine from the past year, but I've got 96 since April of last year.

Which comes out to be 8 per month.

(I do have more from the years in which two friends and I had a small club together, the TMC (Tuesday Movie Club). Every Tuesday after school, we'd go see a movie, and then one or two on the weekend. Every week for nearly three years we'd go, until the one member moved to Oklahoma. Kinda drifted apart after that...)

I've kept my ticket stubs for movies, concerts and sports events since at least the late 70's. Long time ago, they didn't even print the name of the movie on the stub, so I would write it in pen on the small little half-stub.

I have every movie stub from probably 1994-on. I have over 600. I see movies like crazy. My all time highs are:

Spider-man 1/2: 15 times
Star Wars (releases, EP1 and 2): 25 times

From 1989 to 1990 or so, I had a notebook where I would paste both my ticket stub and the opening day ad from the Newspaper...finally gave up on this and got a life - but I still do have the notebook, which includes such releases as INDIANA JONES & THE LAST CRUSADE, BATMAN, GHOSTBUSTERS II, LICENCE TO KILL, STAR TREK V and KARATE KID III.

I got a bunch from the past three years or so.

The theater in my small hometown didn't start printing the name of the movie on the ticket until 1996, about a year after I left for college.

I try to save all of my Star Wars, LOTR, and comic book related stubs.

I wasn't even alive in '85, so no

But I rarely go to theatres and never even thought of saving stubs.

I'll fess up to seeing Godzilla at the theater. I saw it again last year on a bus, and maybe it was the boredom but I found myself thinking 'Hey, this thing isn't half bad'. I'm mostly charmed by the way Harry Shearer uses his Kent Brockman voice for the anchorman.

Oh man, you reminded me of how sweet movie going was back in 1994. I was living in Ontario, and it was $4.25 to go to the multiplex. Then one day, me and my friend were at the supermarket, and they were having a clearance on PopTarts, 99 cents a box. Then my friend pointed out to me that on the back of the box was a coupon for $2 off a movie ticket at Cineplex Odeon. We each bought an armload of PopTarts and it was $2.25 per movie for the rest of year. And then if you snuck into another movie after the first, it came to about $1.12 a film. I saw everything.

Ofcourse, now that I can afford to go to the movies anytime I want I never have the time.
