Best Movie Memory
« on: January 12, 2012, 03:35:35 am »
Now I'm not neccessarily talking about the best part of a film here, although that is good too. I'm really talking about the best memory of going to the movies. Something that happened to make that particular trip stick in your mind.

For example:-
I remember going to watch Titanic with some friends. The best part was as we were leaving-we saw a young teenage girl in floods of tears crying 'I didn't know that it sank and everyone died!'. I couldn't walk, I was laughing so hard.

*laughs*
I didn't thought it was a spoiler that the ship sank... :confused:

Too funny.

I don't know...

There are a few... when we went to see the second Shrek and Puss in Boots started to cough up the hairball, you could point out all the cat owners in the room, because they got hysterical with laughter.

And when I was a teeny weeny little witchling, my mom took me to see Star Wars. The first movie. The real first movie. (I don't acknowledge the three trainwrecks Lucas produced in the last years!)

I was deeply impressed with the movie. Movie and story magic. *sigh*

Seeing Jaws for the first time. It just blew me away at about the age of 5 and I have been in love with sharks since that time.

I took my son to see Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" when he was little (about three, if memory serves).  During the beast's transformation back into a man with long, flowing blond hair, my son yelled "Michael Bolton!"  Every adult in the theater cracked up.

Well, an experience that sticks in my mind was a time when Return of the Jedi was being shown at the theater on base, and my two cousins and my sister and I went to see it (again).

During the speeder bike chase, when Luke cuts off the front of the stormtrooper's bike, and he starts spinning, my cousin shouted out "Auntie Em, Auntie Em! It's a twister! It' a twister!"

I about died right there of embarrassment.

Well my grandmother and aunt took my little cousin and I to see When a Stranger Calls when it first came out when I was 11-ish. It was the first time I had been to a movie theatre in my memory and I was more impressed by the décor of the building then I was with the movie. I laughed through the movie and looked over to see my cousin almost in tears because he was so scared!
His mom had to take him out of the theatre :P Proudest moment of my life.

the rippling layer of back lit clouds in the stormy sky as my dad carried me on his hip leaving the theatre from gremlins.
watching the messenger on the ginormous theatre screen for my birthday with all my friends and my mom.
thinking we were all alone as we tossed popcorn all over the place from the front row seats in the rescuers down under
watching starship troopers with a really loud rowdy crowd cheering all the bug hits and telling the soldiers when to duck!
my teenage brother bash fully asking if I would go see the movie babe with him,because he read the book and wanted to see how the movie was
the 'cool' kid laughing at his friends when they were scared by the cheap thrills in Jurassic park jumping himself when the raptor exhaled loudly into the kitchen windowpane,then shrink in his seat as we all laughed at him
taking my friends six yr old to Horton hears a who and being told to to shush after telling him how much I liked Katie....again.

I saw Alien on opening night in 1979, in one of the few theaters in town with a full Cinemascope screen. It was nearly a religious experience. Rarely has an audience been so in tune, so one with itself and so free with its emotions. When that chestburster first appeared I swear the whole place levitated.

It was amazing and terrifying and euphoric.

When my parents took me to see ET at a drive-in theatre.  I was in my Strawberry Shortcake sleeping bag in the very back of their station wagon (my 6 year old brother beside me in his Star Wars sleeping bag), surrounded by hardened, melted crayola crayons adhered to the carpeted floor.  With those drive in speakers you'd hang on the window to hear the movie... wow.  I don't think I saw the whole movie, since I was only like 4 years old, and it was dark out.  Pretty sure I fell asleep.  But that's still a very vivid memory for me.

Better than when they took me to the same drive in to see the Dark Crystal.  I ended up screaming when the Emperor Skeksi died and crumbled into dust - we had to leave the theatre, I was so upset.

Going to the first Alien with my psychotic sister (some here will remember me talking about her years ago).  I didn't want her there, but my mother asked me to - I was 20 and she would have been 17 I think.  Absolutely full theater.  Just as the lights went out she asked "is this a scary movie?"  Everyone around us laughed, and I straight faced asked her "didn't you know that?"  I knew she was only going to see it because it was popular (her main movie criteria).  She left her seat part way through the movie and didn't show up again until it was almost over.  Made my enjoyment all the sweeter...  :dwink:
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

It's why I always try to ride the roller coaster with a "screamer".  Amplifies the fun by, like, 200%.

I have no idea what we were watching, but I was really young.  4 or 5ish.  But when we came out of a theater, a transformer flew overhead.  I was convinced of this for several years, and to this day, I don't know if it was a dream or a really low-flying plane.

Another memory is fairly recent.  The cinema closest to my Grandmother's house isn't very popular, so there's never many people.  Once, we got there just as the previews were ending.  Or they would have been, if they'd started the movie.  Which they hadn't because nobody had shown up.  They decided they show for us, so we got a private screening.
There is no inherent meaning to life.  Stop looking and give your life meaning.
