There was a ABC\Cannon cinema at the top of my road i have seen too many films to mention. It was 50p a weekday screening.
I saw nearly every PG rated movie between 1985 and 1989 unless it was a chick flick or a disney movie.

Kudos D.

We used to get a travelling cinema in the mid to late eighties. Their door policy was ... flexible cough. Which meant kids running round whilst trying to watch Predator, Nightmare on Elm Street 4 etc. Luckily House and Heartbreak Ridge were bairn free

One memory I haven't shared on here is when we as a family moved back to the States in 68 my dad took us to a local drive-in twice as I remember, The Jungle Book played to a packed car park and was great fun with a speaker perched on the rolled down window and the second was the Hammer She, I remember being frightened by the fire at the end (I was only 8) but all thru the 70s I would catch films like Mash, The Moore Bond films and many other mainstream Hollywood fare, but the most memorable cinema experience was undoubtedly being scared s%@tless at the age of 13 getting in and watching the Exorcist with pals, as a horror buff already I had no idea just how traumatic it would be in a darkened cinema (lights were left on that night) didn't put me off horror tho...

I have a slightly X-rated Terminator story, when it first came out it was shown in a local ABC fleapit,one of those cinemas that had three pretty small screens. I goes in, takes my seat, about ten minutes into the film, some old bloke, dirty mack an all that, starts touching my knee, since I don't do nothing for free, I made my excuses and legged it....

Easily my most uncomfortable viewing experience was Mother! ... I just could not relax 'into it' as such. Divisive for sure, but after missing out on seeing The Fountain I was champing at the bit to see one of his all proper like. Still haven't watched the BD. Keep repeating ... It's only a movie

I also was fairly squirmy during Dark Water (remake). But that was because it is pond scum after all.

At the old (now demolished) cinema my sister took me to see
Honey I shrunk The Kids
(one woman sat behind us chain smoking)

Ghostbusters 2
(My sister's friend just about crapped herself with the bathtub scene)

Police Academy 6
(was due to see Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade but was told i was too young to see it by the cashier)

Jurassic Park
(on holiday in Blackpool, folks wanted to see it, sat next to a complete stranger who enjoyed holding my arm and digging her nails in, got a apology and bruises.

Ace Ventura Pet Detective
(went on a School trip and teacher felt embarrassed with the bedroom part)

The Naked Gun 33/3
(nobody heard the film for some loudmouth people laughing)

Stargate
(my brother and his ex girlfriend took me to see that, they must have found it boring as they were getting a bit too frisky)

Batman and Robin
(youth club i was in , organizers decided it was a choice of that film or One Fine Day..i should have faked sickness).

A Clockwork Orange
(re-release took my dad to see it and he fell asleep and started to snore)

The Green Mile
(nearly everyone came out of the screen crying)

The Exorcist
(re release of it this time i took my sister, same thing as the Jurassic Park screening only this time almost went deaf)

Hot Fuzz
(took my ex wife, we were the only ones in that screen pure bliss)

Mr Bean's Holiday
(ex wife again, bunch of kids running around, put a complaint in and got free tickets decided to see Hitman)

Mirrors
(never seen so much popcorn go up in the air)

Saw V
(two girls sat in front of us looked younger than 18 held onto each other in the first 3 mins of the movie starting)

Indian Jones and The Crystal Skull
(Dad being a Indie Fan took him to see it, his words are best not repeated when we came out of the cinema)

Fast and Furious 4
(One couple broke up, he was no Vin Diesel and he wished his girl had a nice ass like Michelle Rodriguez.)

The Dark Knight
(free tickets and complimentary pizza, what more can you ask for)
