    Yeah even as a kid I was more disgusted by that scene than laughing at it.

    Because it was R-rated and we were underage, we tried to convince my buddy's uncle to take us. We convinced him to go after telling him there was supposed to be a lot of T&A in the movie.

    Joysticks (1983)
    Another T&A R-rated movie my buddy and I wanted to see. Before his mom would let the theater know it was OK for us to see it, she asked what the movie was about. We told her it was about video games.

    Lone Wolf McQuade (1983)
    Platoon (1986)
    Police Academy (1984)

    Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment (1985)
    Was in high school and we snuck beer into the theater. Every time one of us finished a beer, we rolled the empty can down under the seats. All through the movie was the sound of cans rolling about 10 rows.

    Porky's (1982)
    Saw this in 7th grade with my mom, her boyfriend and my sister.

    Raging Bull (1980)
    Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
    Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985)
    Red Dawn (1984)

    Revenge of the Nerds (1984)
    Group of us got permission from our parents to see this movie except for one person. Because he recently hurt his ankle and was on crutches, his parents wouldn't let him leave the house. They went out on Saturday night, so he came to the theater with us. Since he didn't have permission to get into the R-rated movie, we had him wait outside the back entrance and then let him in after entering the theater. When the movie was over, we raced back to his house before his parents returned home.

    Sixteen Candles (1984)

    This story could be its own 80s movie.

    Your parents took you to see R rated movies as a kid? I remember being 7-8 and my babysitter took me to see "True Lies" in theaters and my parents were pissed over it..yet they always let me rent whichever horror movies from the 80's I wanted. There is a movie out there somewhere where a monster/demon eats a girls boob off..it's my life goal to find out which movie that was.

    Depends on how old you define a "kid" to be.

    The first movie I saw in a theater without adult supervision was Star Tek: The Motion Picture.
    Otherwise I probably saw most of the movies in the 80's either with my mother or with friends.

    Unfortunately I wasn't born when any of the original Star Wars films were in theaters. Granted they were eventually re-released, but I don't think they quite had the same magic. I'm not saying that because I'm one of those people who hate the changes GL made(I've never seen the originals in their true form), but rather simply because SW's had already been firmly cemented in pop culture by then. Oddly enough I didn't get heavily into Star Wars until about 10-11 years ago when I was 16.

    I'll admit when I saw the movie a few years I thought to myself "they didn't need to make him look like a monster since a normal Howie Mandel coming out from under your bed would be utterly terrifying".

    Mine did, sure. They even used to get pleasure from my fear of horror movies (before I "toughened up"). Plus the times I saw R-rated movies without them. I really cannot ever remember being carded at the theatre. I was 13-ish when I started going to midnight shows of Rocky Horror alone.

    I guess I should include 1982 movies (I was 16-17 at that point):
    48 Hours
    Airplane II: The Sequel
    Amityville II: The Possession
    Android
    Annie
    The Atomic Cafe
    The Beastmaster
    The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas
    Blade Runner
    Cat People
    Conan the Barbarian
    Creepshow
    The Dark Crystal
    Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid
    Death Wish II
    Diner
    E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
    Fast Times at Ridgemont High
    First Blood
    Friday the 13th Part III
    Halloween III: Season of the Witch
    Hanky Panky
    The Last Unicorn
    Megaforce
    An Officer and a Gentleman
    Pink Floyd The Wall
    The Pirate Movie
    Poltergeist
    Porky's
    Rocky III
    The Secret of NIMH
    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
    Swamp Thing
    The Sword and the Sorcerer
    The Thing
    Things Are Tough All Over
    Tootsie
    Tron
    The World According to Garp
    The Year of Living Dangerously
    Young Doctors in Love
    Zapped!

    Fast Times, Porky's, The Wall, and Zapped... such a perfect time to be 16-17.

    My family didn't have alot of money in the 80s so going to the movies was rare. It was a big event for us kids however.

    I saw-

    Care bears movie-School field trip. Hey i was a little kid.
    ET (plus the rerelease years later for my little sister)
    Gremlins
    Tarzan legend of greystoke (i think thats what it was called. The 80s tarzan movie.)
    Supergirl (at the drive in!)
    Neverending story
    Ghostbusters 2

    We were going to see he-man secret of the sword and the first ghostbusters but didn't get to go.

    Greystoke was my favourite film as a kid. It was on UK Channel 5 last Sunday evening.

    Just as enjoyable with a bottle of wine and some beef olives as opposed to ki-ora and gummy bears.
