I am a huge movie buff. I love, love, LOVE going to the movies. I think it probably started back when I was a kid. In the small town I grew up in we had a drive-in movie theater. Sometimes my parents would take us there to see the latest movie. We would all sit on top of the car and watch the movie. It was awesome.
It was not unusual though for people (including us) to park outside the drive-in and watch movies too. The fence was low so it was easy to do. I miss going to the drive-in and all the fascinating things that often went on there. Sadly, there are very few left.

When I got to be about 10-12 years old. My Mom would let me go to the local theatre to see movies. I remember going to see Benji there. When my Mom picked me up I was boo-hooing about something that happened to him. (I was such a sensitive child.)
|My first date movie|
Later when we moved to where I live now, I went to movies all the time as a teen. My first date ever (I was 15 for the record) was to the movies and we saw Empire Strikes Back. My date back then paid for our movie, bought me popcorn and held my hand. He even wore a tie! *chuckles* We continued seeing movies every week throughout our six years together.
|A special favorite|
A few years later, my life consisted of Disney movies on VHS. My kids loved to watch them over and over. One of our favorites was Christmas On Sesame Street. Believe it or not, we still watch this one every year at Christmas time.
Of course wouldn't you know, when I flew out to meet Tamirisc (my hubby) in 2008, we fell in love over the movie The Dark Knight. I know, weird but true.
|An all time favorite|
Today I have a vast collection of DVDs some favorites and some new. I have always liked old movies especially with Fred Astaire or Jimmy Stewart in them, so they are also in my collection as well. Tamirisc and I still go to the theatre once in awhile too. If you want to see what we have seen lately, check out the list to the left. The most recent was The Hunger Games.
Yes, I do have a love of movies and I think after all these years, it is most likely to stick with me. Don't you think?
Do you have a favorite movie(s)? Tell me about them.
PS>There is drive-in movie theatre located about an hour from here. The owners revamped it last year and will be open for business in May. I think we will be going! :)
