    Anyone remember?

    Off the top of my head, I'd guess Fight Club.

    Dances With Wolves DTS came out in Jan of '99. That was the first 2 disc DVD that I remember coming out. I still have it to this day.

    Fight Club came after Armageddon CC and A Bug's Life, as well.

    Armageddon CC was released on April 20th 1999. Like I said before Dances With Wolves is the first 2 disc DVD I remember.

    Jonathan, right, but that doesn't really count because the only reason it was 2 discs was because DTS takes up so much room. I'm saying the first one that matches the current form

    I know The Abyss came out before Fight Club which was released in June of 2000 if I recall correctly. This was Fox's first two disc. However, Armageddon was the first I remember coming to market.

    Hmm, well, there are 3 different answers I can give to this question. The first DVD I picked up that had more than 1 disc was Brazil CC with 3 discs. The first 2 disc set I bought was the Halloween: Limited Edition that had the extended TV version on disc 2. However, the first 2-disc set that had the movie on the first disc and the special features on the second was The Abyss. It took me 13 months of collecting before I picked up a multi-disc set, and that sure was an event! Nowdays, it seems like every DVD I buy has 2 discs.

    The oldest multi-DVD release in my collection is the From the Earth to the Moon box set, released 10 November 1998. That's not a "2-disc SE" per se, but it does contain a separate disc with extras (in addition to three discs of episodes).
    The next multi-disc release I have is The Ten Commandments, released 30 March 1999. It's one film split over two discs -- as opposed to a Special Edition -- but it still has the distinction of being the first DVD release I ever saw in a dual-Alpha case.
    After that, the Criterion Brazil and Armageddon, as mentioned by several other posters.

    I think the first was Patton. That's the first 2-disc DVD that I recall hearing about.

    Or maybe The Ten Commandments.

    The first 2-disc release I remember is Metallica's Cunning Stunts (which at the time made sense since they couldn't make DVD-18s yet.)

    Jeff, I was just talking about 2 disc in general. I believe you are right about Armageddon CC being the first 2 disc SE DVD set.
