  • The first movie I remember seeing in a movie theater

  • is Disney's 'The Fox and the Hound'.

  • Left me weeping and, uncontrollably actually.

  • I think it must have been Walt Disney.

  • Small town in Ohio, with only one movie theater and I think it was probably 'Pinocchio' or

  • 'Snow White'.

  • 'The Rescuers'.

  • That Disney film.

  • About, sort of chipmunk people who go and save people in hot-air balloons and stuff.

  • Swiftly followed by 'Beauty and the Beast'.

  • Oh, my Gosh.

  • 'Beauty and Beast'.

  • Probably was a Disney film, it was probably maybe 'Beauty and the Beast'?

  • Or something like that?

  • And I remember they had someone dressed as Belle and someone dressed as The Beast at

  • the premiere and I was terrified of The Beast.

  • I mean, I was like crying in my Mom and Dad's arms, but I loved the film.

  • I found it incredibly sad that the fox and the hound couldn't be friends forever.

  • But it's been - that balance has been redressed with 'Zootopia', where foxes and rabbits can

  • live in the same place.

  • That's how far we've come.

  • It's either 'The Little Mermaid' or 'Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves'.

  • 'All Dogs Go To Heaven'.

  • That was my first one.

  • I also, growing up in Ireland, our town did not have a movie theater so we had to travel

  • to go see that.

  • 'Them!'

  • It was a science fiction movie where ants became giant here in Los Angeles.

  • So, the first movie I remember seeing in a movie theater, and you're probably not gonna

  • believe me when I say that I remember this, was 'E.T.'

  • My father woke me and my brother up, we were wearing pajamas, and took us to see

  • 'Return of the Jedi'.

  • And it was unbelievable.

  • I remember vividly my Mom taking me to see 'Lawrence of Arabia' in the movie theater.

  • I remember everything about the place, especially about her and how into the movie she was and

  • I was too.

  • The first movie I saw in a movie theater that really impressed me was 'Starman'.

  • And I got to tell Jeff Bridges that recently, which was cool.

  • Yeah, I have memories of this.

  • I do.

  • And...

  • Let me crash this interview because she was sitting on my lap.

  • And I wondered if she could actually follow a movie, I wasn't 100% sure but I loved 'E.T.'

  • so much.

  • And she literally, as the boys were flying across the moon and John Williams' music was

  • playing she said "ET fly!"

  • And it was the first time that I ever knew that she could actually follow

  • the story of a movie.

  • 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'?

  • Was that it?

  • Yeah, really excited about it.

  • Went home and immediately started re-enacting all the different scenes.

  • Really, uh, really quite dangerous actually.

  • Shouldn't have done that.
