If you could only see 1 movie, in a theater, in your entire life...which would it be?

Now, this doesn't have to be your favorite movie of all time, it doesn't even have to have been released yet or ever (something you would die to be released, from a book perhaps). A movie that perhaps you saw in the theater, but don't even remember seeing (something that you could only enjoy now, again, as if it were the first time).

Basically, a movie that can only be thoroughly enjoyed to its fullest in the big screen, enveloping surround sound format of a movie theater!

For me, even though I saw it in the theater, I was too young to remember, but if I could only see 1 movie in a theater in my entire life it would be the original, unedited, 1977 release of...

..."Star Wars"

Jurassic Park

(2nd would be The Matrix since for some reason I never saw it in a good theater, just the $2 really crappy theater in my college town and the sound was terrible, they got it opening night so I saw it there twice and never in a good sounding theater)

I would want to see any Sergio Leone flick. If I had to choose, it would most definately be The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

For me, it'd probably be either Lawrence of Arabia (70mm) or The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
