Lauren is our hostess this week and her choice of topic is going to the movies.
Do you remember specific times you went to indoor movies or drive in theatres? Do you remember the first time for either? Do you remember going with friends and not parents?
I’ve never been to a drive in movie or theatre.
My Dad took me to see The Wizard of Oz as he felt every child should see it on the big screen. I was about 10 I think and it was just him and me. I loved it!
For years, Boxing Day would see us go as a family to the pictures on the bus to see the latest blockbuster. I can remember Digby, The Biggest Dog in the World, and Jaws.
I went to see the Sound of Music with a friend, and have actually seen it about 7 times, not once on TV though.
A neighbour and I went to see Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and were the only adults in the audience. I also went to see Dumbo and cried my heart out.
Lethal Weapon 3 has distinct memories as Hubby and I had a major disagreement once and he went out for hours. The following day I did the same, and it turned out we’d both gone to see the same film! We got a video copy to remind us.
I think the last movie we saw in the cinema was Terminator 3, Rise of The Machines. Hubby can’t sit through a long film now so we usually wait until it’s available to buy on DVD. These days though not very much appeals.
