Return of the Jedi was the first movie I ever saw at a theater. I was only five (almost six), but I remember the experience fairly well. My mom took me to Burger King after the movie, and I got a Burger King RotJ glass, the one with Luke standing next to the Sarlacc Pit.
Gremlins is the first movie I can remember seeing at the local drive-in. I was six. I distinctly remember really, really wanting to see it - and then being very frightened when I did, particularly when the gremlin kills Mr. Hanson, and my dad telling me to deal with it because I'd wanted to see it so much. :b
I remember seeing The Dark Crystal and The Muppets Take Manhattan in the mid-80s at Virginia Cinema, a small local theater that showed older movies. And I have sooooo many fragmented memories of many, many, many movies from HBO in the 80s. :b
So - what are your earliest movie memories?

Raiders of the Lost Ark is the first movie I actually vividly remember seeing as a wee little kid (think I was almost 4). Cinderella, Star Wars ('82 re-release), Peter Pan, Tron, Annie, Empire Strikes Back ('82 re-release), ET and Star Trek II TWOK are other movies that I saw when I was only about 4 and can actually remember seeing in the theater.
According to my Mom the first movie she ever took me to see was Popeye the movie. But I was barely 2 so I have no recollection of it at all.
Speaking of ROTJ, my aunt worked for Fox at the time so I got to see it before it came out on the Fox lot at a preview screening. I remember being really scared of the Rancor and really liking Jabba the Hutt.

I remember seeing Star Wars in both the theater and drive in
I also remember seeing Raiders at the drive in and having a sound issue with the little metal box that use to mount to your window
and my dad getting pissed and then leaving (us at the drive in)

i've been told the 1st movie i was taken to was ROTJ when i was about 4. i don't remember it at all. in fact, the 1st movies i have a concrete memory of going to see in the theater were Batman and Predator, both of which would have been when i was 9 or 10. weird.
edit --- well, i just looked them up, and it would seem Predator came out 2 years before Batman, so I guess Predator is the first. would have been summer/fall of '87, so i was 8.
