I guess for me it would be "You Only Live Twice"...Sean Connery as James Bond (June of 1967). I was bearly nine years old and seeing it with my parents at the drive-in theater.
The next after that...and not only one that I remember explicitly...but one that I went to see on my own with my brother. "2001: A Space Odyssey" (April 1968). This time in a movie theater in Nanuet, NY that (at the time) had a state of the art "multi-channel" sound system with huge woofers.
Close behind that is "Yellow Submarine" (November 1968) that I also saw in a movie theater as a Saturday afternoon matinee.
Hehe....Well... Non Disney...
All memories are around the late '70s.
For theater with the family, I remember going to see "Saturday Night Fever" with my parents as they were all into the disco craze and would have these disco parties at the house back then (now that I think about it, my parents had more fun in their 20's and 30's than me and my wife...with all the house parties...hehe).
I do remember going with a family member to see "Jaws, "Grease", "Star Wars" and also "Superman". But the largest number of family I remember going out to the movies including my grandparents (which was the only time) was watching "Poltergeist".
My dad and mom used to take me and my brother to the drive-in when we were young. Granted, I don't know what they were doing in the front seat (nor do I want to think about it) but I remember we would sleep and when I woke up, seeing nude women on the screen - the movie was "Stripes" and I think we actually went to the drive-in to see "Porky's"....maybe even "Fast Times at Ridgemont High"...hehe... I don't remember too much of these drive-in days..as my parents made sure we were dead tired and fell asleep.
But probably my most favorite experience at the theater when I was young was watching "Rocky IV" and seeing the crowd all up in their feet and really getting into that final boxing match and screaming and rooting for Rocky. That was an unreal moment.

My grandmother took me to the movie actually had a stroke and lost her eyesight in her left eye permenantly DURING the early part of the movie. I never did get the see most of the film until video years later. Believe it or not she liked the first Back to the Future film but flatout refused to ever watch Part 2 afterwards because she thought it was cursed and didn't want to lose her other eye. :ohnoes:
Whoah! Sorry to hear that man... That sucks!

Well, I don't think you are the only one. I've read of people who purchased with coupons on Tuesday and then were charged the price without coupons and other situations. Anyway, I hope you get everything squared away but truthfully, you get more mileage from calling to get your order squared away:
International customers should call 201-559-3882201-438-1475.
