First film?

Post  Hinch on Sat Apr 05, 2014 9:49 am

What was the first film you ever saw? One of my first was 'Tom Thumb' circa 1958 at the old Victory cinema - Now Worldwide Cash & Carry. I just watched this clip with the wonderful Russ Tamblyn. No CGI. Just great acting, dancing and cinematography.

I can't remember. It may have been Mary Poppins but was definitely in the cinema aty the top of Drake Street. It closed down not long after.
First non U or A film was National Lampoons Animal House at the ABC. I was by myself. We were all suppose to meet inside but my mate got his date of birth wrong and him and everyone else with him ended up watching Pete's Dragon.

Kids under 12 were not allowed in cinemas in my day without a parent. Unless of course it was matinee which was Satuday afternoons (later changed to Saturday mornings). The first major film I saw was at nine years old taken with my mother to see - wait for it - Dial 'M' for Murder. Classification 'A' - kids allowed with an adult. It scared me sh******. I could do without bodies in baths at that age let me tell you. So what does that say about my mother? Can I take her to the cops for mental abuse? The film was showing at the Palace. The matinees at the Ceylon and Pavillion. Go on - top that - Wink Razz
