It can be old or new, depending. And it has to be a huge hollywood blockbuster theatrical release.
Charlottes Web. Where The Red Fern Grows. 1776. The Parent Trap (whole school gym rental). The others were theatrical.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Charlottes Web, 1776, The Worlds Greatest Dad, Sounder
Big Red, Pollyanna, The Sound of Music.
I don't recall the names, but they all seemed to be 16mm films that starred Clifton Fadiman.
My Junior High went to see 1776 once. I didn't pay much attention to it at the time but several years later i checked the Broadway Cast Album out of the library and fell in love with it.
No blockbusters (although I know you want Blockbusters).
We saw the same 16mm science series films that were highlighted
in the movie GREMLINS.
Also, Winter of the Witch
Since our little upstate-NY small-town school was a three-block walk from the local theater (one screen), we got to see 1776 as a fifth-grade lesson too, and worked out so well, we went back a year later to see the Sherman Bros. "Huckleberry Finn". 1776 was better, though.

As a special treat, our choir group went to see "Toy Story" on a Friday arvo, just a few days after it first opened in Australia. Went back the next day with my younger brother.
And our entire Year 10 class went to see Baz Luhrmann's "Romeo + Juliet", because we were studying it. It was supposedly meant to be an exclusive-only screening but the cinema received complaints from a few regular patrons who somehow managed to get in as well, about the 'unruly behaviour' of several students. I recall there was a fair bit of popcorn throwing and wolf-whistling going on.
No, it was a live-action science film with a scientist who appeared
in several different 16mm episodes.
I remember they showed it in Gremlins during the scene where a
Gremlin gets loose in the classroom.
I saw the March Of The Penguins, it wasn't the film though, it was real penguins at Edinburgh Zoo. ( late seventies )
I don't recall ever getting taken to the cinema to see a film by the schools here.
I do remember going to the Edinburgh UCI cinema in 1997 and buying tickets for Romeo and Juliet and Star Wars Episode V - Special Edition, now i was booked to watch Romeo and Juliet first and then straight onto The Empire Strikes Back, unfortunately a school had booked for Romeo and Juliet and were running late to see it, the cinema delayed it, i basically missed the final ten minutes of Romeo and Juliet and the first fifteen minutes of The Empire Strikes Back thanks to that school delaying things, i was not a happy bunny but i was only 27 and didn't get into complaining about things until i reached my mid thirties.
For some reason the only film I remember seeing on a school trip or at school was Andromeda Strain. Why this film was shown to us, I really don't know.
I owe you an apology.
It was Frank Capra's Wonders of Life.
Didn't recognize it from the box art, but when I referenced it
on YouTube, I immediately recognized the scientist in the film.
Thanks for obtaining the name of that title.
Do you mean It's A Wonderful Life. ?
Nope. See link in post #8
I'm confused, that link goes to some other films, also IMDB says Capra never made a film called that.
This was a Frank Capra produced education film. There are two
of them, to be exact.
Back in the 70s, they were shown in our classroom on a 16mm projector.
Seems like a lot of people saw those same films as teens in their school.
So much so, that Joe Dante used a clip from it in Gremlins.
Okay gotcha, i was thinking he directed it but couldn't find that info anywhere.
Our school never took us to a theater but we sure had a lot of 16mm films shown in the gym. I particularly remember "The Love Bug" and "The Jungle Book", and of course the Disney nature films.
I'm dating myself, but my high school class took a trip to New York City to see Lawrence of Arabia.
