First is speculative; both Snow White and Bambi were re-released in 1975, and I'm pretty sure I saw them both before there next re-release. Bambi came out in June; Snow White in December so probably Bambi. I was very young.

ROTJ is the first memory I have of a theater experience. I'm sure my parents took me to other ones, but I don't recall them.

These are the same for me.

My first movie going memory is my mom leaning over and reading Jabbaís subtitles to me from RotJ. I was 3 years old.

Last: Rise of Skywalker. Somehow I donít think Iíll remember my RoS experience in 37 years...

Re: First/Last movie at the theater?

First (that I can remember): American Tail
Last (so far!): Tenet

I've been told I was taken to ET, but have no memories of it.

Re: First/Last movie at the theater?

Me and devilshalo are about the same age.


Was a big fan of Star Wars, but can not remember which theater we watched it at.
And my family did two big moves around the late 70's,but do not remember what I saw in Auburn,ca.

Maybe not the first, but the earliest I remember.
First: Superman 1978
Last: avengers infinity war

This is exactly what I came here to post - Jedi first, Rise last.

And my experience with Jedi sounds similar as well. I wouldíve been 3 when it came out, and Iím sure that wasnít my first time in a theater, but itís my first memory of being in one.

Re: First/Last movie at the theater?

My first was, I believe, a 1957 re-release of Disney's CINDERELLA (1950).

My last was Greta Gerwig's LITTLE WOMEN (2019) on the last day of last year.

Re: First/Last movie at the theater?

I know for a fact that I saw ET, but I don't remember it. No idea if there were any others I don't remember. The first I remember is Return of the Jedi.

Last was Tenet.

Wow, 3 of us with the same exact movies. That's kinda wild.

I was 7 when I saw Jedi. Super memorable because my sister was an infant. I remember my mom having to leave the theater to change her, right at the throne room scene. Helluva time to explode there, sis.

Re: First/Last movie at the theater?

Neither I, nor my Mother, remember my first movie. The earliest one I can remember is the animated film Oliver & Company. I was either 4 or 5. The last one I saw was A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984), which I saw last night. Tonight I'll be seeing What We Do In The Shadows, at the same theatre.
