what movie was it, and what part of the experience do you vividly remember? as for me, the first movie i've ever watched was disney's beauty and the beast. i don't remember exactly how old i was...probably around 7 or 8 and i was sooo excited. my mom, my sister and i didn't come early, so by the time we got there, it was so crowded that we couldn't find seats anymore. i remember there was this really bossy lady and she was elbowing her way to the front. i don't know what came over me, but when she pushed pass me, i shoved her! i didn't shove her hard enough that she fell over, but she did lurch forward a bit. i remember how she turned around and yelled in our direction. i still can't believe i did it, but i think it was because it was dark inside and i was sure she wouldn't know it was me. if it was in broad daylight, i never would have done it! what about you?

I can hardly remember the first time I watched a movie. I think I was somewhere around 4-6 years old and it was some Santa Claus movie. I know the Father took us there. I will remember to stay away from you when I think you're in the theater with me. A good distance so as not to be shoved. Hahah.

the first movie I remember watching in a movie theatre was Ghost (Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore) I was only 6 yrs. old and it was R-18, way back then, movie theatres don't have restrictions on viwers' ages.. My mom and nanny wanted to watch the movie so badly and brought me with them coz there was actually a movie double or "free movie after" playing Cinderella, so it was worth the pay.. and then when I was 7, I watched The Little Mermaid, and when I was 8 or 9, Beauty and the Beast was a big hit.. I remember going to that same movie theatre and it was a very large crowd too.. there was a very long queue and I remember noticing that there are more adults mostly guys in the crowd which I eventually find it funny.. so my mom asked our family driver to get us tickets, he was so clever that he made it through the crowd without letting anyone noticed he was actually cutting in line by just merely being polite saying "excuse me.." as he passes each person waiting.. lol. I also remember another funny experience, movie theatres before also doesn't limit the number of viewers to get inside the cinema, and usually even with no more seats available, people still gets in coz when somebody leaves his/her seat, people will fight over it..lol. and for those who were not able to find a seat had no choice but to stand up watching, and I usually hear some people seated at their back yelling at them complaining they can't see..lol. it was a mayhem especially on movie premiers..

Hi! I'm not sure if it was my first time in a cinema...I think it is, when I was 6. It was quite a funny experience. Our family went to watch Jurassic Park. Because its rating was PG-7, my parents told me to lie and say I was 7. When we got to the ticket lady at the theater, she asked me how old I was. As I were told, I said 7. Luckily, we got through.

Well no, I don't remember precisely... because there's so many movie that I've watch in my entire life. Maybe it was comedy movie that I've watch with my classmates or may be a science fiction movie that one of my family ask me to watch with... Sorry I can't really remember.
