    The purpose of this awkwardly titled thread is for you to list/discuss the most number of times you've been to the cinema to see a film. Over the last year, I've seen several films more than once at the cinema.
    Recently:
    Minority Report. 4 times. At least 2 more times to come.
    Attack of the Clones. 3 times.
    Previously title holder:
    Fight Club. 5 times.
    Amelie. 3 times.
    The Phantom Menace. 5 times. 4 times in the 3 days I went to New York to see it opening weekend. Once two months later when it came out here.

    If my memory serves correct over the past year I've only been to the movies once, which was Attack of the Clones.

    Let's see..
    Attack of the Clones: 3 so far (at least one more to come)
    The Phantom Menace: 6 (hey, I liked it!)
    AI: twice
    The original SW trilogy: at least 10 for each (17 times for Jedi [​IMG]), including the SEs, and a special all-three back-to-back screening during college
    Jurassic Park: 4
    And those are just off the top of my head...

    Lord of the Rings was the last film I saw more than once, 3 times.
    I rarely see the same film more than once at the cinema now, but when I was a teen I would regularly see the same movie again and again, I must have seen Jaws and Enter the Dragon more than a dozen times each.

    The Sixth Sense
    Saw it 5 times during its theatrical release.
    The most obsessed I have been with a movie was Under Siege (6 times in the first 7 days - all after-hour showings while working at the theater).

    The Matrix: 3 times
    Fellowship of the Rings: 2 times
    Attack of the Clones: 2 times
    Now that DVDs are coming out soon after theatrical release I don't bother to see them as much if at all. I would have gone to FotR and AotC a few more times if I known I would have had to wait 2 years to get them on DVD. Luckily I don't [​IMG]

    I've seen many movies a dozen times since I work in a movie theater. [​IMG]
    I saw each Star Wars movie in the theater twice, except for Attack of the Clones. I'll get the DVD.

    As of yesterday, I have seen 2001: A Space Odyssey 62 times in commercial theaters (saw a 35mm print yesterday). Coming in second is Zardoz at 56 screenings in commercial cinemas.

    Have no idea how many times total I've seen both films. I used to have joint ownership of a 16mm CinemaScope MGM lab print of 2001 back in the 1970s, and I don't know how many times I screened that print.
