There are very few films I remember going to see at the cinema before my teenage years. Do you remember the films you saw as a child? What were they?

There are only two films I remember seeing in theatres, but I'm sure there were more. I remember going to see the first Michael Keaton Batman movie, and my mom and I going to see The Land Before Time.
The first film I remember going to see is Babe when I was five. I was so bored by it, that I moved seats half a dozen times until my mum decided to take me out. It is the only film I have not stayed to watch the entire length on. It put me off going to the cinema for a long time, so much so that the next film I remember going to see is Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone When I was 11. The second one came out when I was twelve. The other films I remember seeing before turing Thirteen are the first two Lord of the Rings films, Lilo and Stitch, and Cats & Dogs, which was my favourite movie for many years.
I remember seeing Batman and Robin, Mighty Mouse, cartoons, and Superman, and things like Hopalong Cassidy -is this giving away my age?

That was a long time ago, and the movies are so different now.

James Bond with Roger Moore. LOL
I remember going to see 101 Dalmatians, Mulan and Barney. Mulan was the best cinema experience I had as a child. Despite dropping my choc top on the floor, the outing was a surprise.

When you say 101 Dalmatians, do you mean the live action version, since the animated one was in the sixties?
Yes, the live action version.

I remember going to see The Jungle Book really vividly. It wasn't when it originally came out, but they used to rerun Disney films in the 80s, before they all came out on video. I had to be carried from the cinema screaming because I was so upset when I thought Baloo had died (spoiler alert: he didn't, phew).
Mary Poppins, at the Saturday matinee. We lived in a country town and us kids were allowed to go to the cinema alone in the afternoon. I also rember Mum taking all of us kids to see Crocodile Dundee - my lord we laughed until we cried.
'Gigi', 'Fantasia', & 'Perri'.

When a teenager, went to the movies nearly every Saturday. The two I remember from those years were both Elvis, 'Viva Las Vegas' & 'Fun in Acapulco'. Loved them, still do, & have them both on DVD, the music was great!
Seeing Fantasia on the big screen must have been amazing.
Oh! Bryony......yes, when I didn't have my head inside my Father's coat lapel! The final segment, 'Night on Bald Mountain' had me scared witless, when I was very little! I cried for the Dinosaurs' dying.
But, of course, as I got older, appreciated it for the masterpiece it was. Last time I saw it on big screen was about 30 years' ago! Have it on DVD! Cheers!
