Spiderman (the first maguire one)
It was a 12A and we were 10
My mate shouted out when the green goblin got killed cause he was a top UK lad


#3

I honestly can’t remember, this is disappointing to me.

It would have been at Ashford Cineworld though:

Which is not derelict/demolished but was directly next to what used to be a club called M20 (because it was situated in a retail park off the M20) which was a complete fucking shithole.


#4

At the original Colchester Odeon (it moved shortly after, and 15 years later it’s never been reopened as anything new :frowning: )


#5

It was Brendan Fraser’s first Mummy film, and I found parts of it to be utterly terrifying.

It was at this place:


#6

Airplane 2
(I am serious)


#7

Space Jam - a true gem of celluloid. March 1997

At the Belle Vue, Edgware.

Its now flats, of course


#8

I honestly can’t remember.


#9

Kingpin. Went with my mate Mark. Choice was that or Cable Guy.

Still no idea whether we made the right choice. Was shit, but… Jim Carrey? Ugh.

The first film I saw that I was too young to see was Fever Pitch #lad

#15

Did you go Mandy’s Nut House?


#16

To confirm: I don’t think I ever had the pleasure


#17

can’t remember but would have been here:

which shut down ages ago and was a strip club for a while (with a creche in it, grim) but now looks like this:


#18

Went to watch Cool Runnings with Daniel Just at the Cannon in Watford in.

Went again the following week with James Pearce to watch the same film.

Had a bag of Maltesers on both occasions.

Now it’s Ikky’s Barbershop


#19

Absolutely no idea. Maybe Titanic? But that seems way too late.

Would have been the Picturedrome, Newport, IoW which is now a Yates:


#20

Who the hell can remember things like this?
