IMDb recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, and it asked various celebrities the burning question we’ve all been dying to know the answer to: What’s your first movie in a movie theatre? Mine was Home Alone (1990), which I watched at the Grand single-screen movie theatre in Springfield, MA (it’s now a church). I was 9 (no wonder it’s my favorite number) and my life was forever changed. I’ve been tracking every movie I’ve seen in a theatre ever since. Twenty-five years later, I’m up to 772 films.
See what celebrities like Chris Pratt, Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence, Keira Knightley, Christopher Nolan, Ryan Gosling, Matthew McConaughey, Amy Poehler, Jake Gyllenhaal, and others had to say here.
