Interstellar in IMAX. What a incredible experience that would be!

Pretty sure I did see all of those at the cinema.

 

I cannot actually think of anything I did not see that I wanted to see. Probably says more about my memory than my cinema going.

 

 

 

My greatest screen memory is seeing the original Star Wars in Leicester Square with my father in 1977, I have to say!

I didn't count those because I eventually saw the re-released versions of them on the big screen in 1997. I did see RotJ on the big screen back in 1983.

Avatar would be mine. The cinema choices where I live are limited and I don't get out much.

Avatar was a brain bender in the cinema in 3D.  It was the best example of 3D at the time, and the opening sequence where the main character comes out of his pod in the ship showed a depth in the image that I'd never experienced before.  Felt like you were in the ship with him.  Most 3D I'd seen up to that point was all about stuff coming out of the screen at you.  This was about enhancing the depth of the image instead.

Yup, the gold standard in 3D until relatively recently I have to say.
