As a child, we weren't able to go to the movie theater very often, and there was no such thing as a VCR, lol. Remember when you could actually only see a movie at the theater or on the rare occasion when it came on t.v.?

We lived for whatever movie was shown on "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights.

I wasn't really a child but my all time favorite is The Black Stallion and The Return of the Black (I think thats the name). We didn't go to the movies as a family when I was a child. When I was old enough to ride the bus we did go. At home we watched shows like Sonny & Cher, Glen Campbell (my first crush in sixth grade) and boxing (Bruno Samartino a local Pittsburgh guy)

We were not allowed to go to the theatre as children, the only two movies I ever saw before I was grown and Married was The Ten Commandments and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. It was a double feature and we begged to see ChittY after sitting through Commandments. Mom gave in. I was probably 8 or 9 years old. The next movie I saw was on my Honeymoon... James Bond and Some kind of Kung Fu...Since this time I have watched everything I can see. Love going to the movies, but now can't sit through one. Good thing video's do exist now.

I grew up on a farm and we never went to the movies either. For me my favorite day was Sunday. We would watch Disney World and Bonanza on a black and white tv. lol
And Austen yes I definitely remember a world without VCR's LOL

I loved all musicals - South Pacific, Oklahoma, The King and I, My Fair Lady, and then all the Disney ones: Mary Poppins, Sound of Music. I'd be singing "Some Enchanted Evening," around the house and my brother would stare daggers at me until I stopped.

I still do this, but my husband is a little more understanding - at least he doesn't object as much :) He HATES musicals, though!

My favorite was Sleeping Beauty--but I didn't see the movie until I was grown. When I was very tiny--2 or 3-- I had a book with pictures from the Disney movie and I loved it. I even memorized it because I had my mom read it so often. Diane
