    I'm surprised that more people don't want to undertake this. It forced me to trace through my entire life.

    What a novel exercise in nostalgia and trawling through your own personal Bond history.

    DN - TLD: On telly in various villages in Staffordshire and on my uncle's newfangled VHS player in Birmingham. Can even remember my first ever Bond memory and thanks to this (https://www.mi6-hq.com/sections/articles/history_bond_on_tv.php3?id=02822) can pinpoint it to TMWTGG 25th Dec 1980. Although this is just a fleeting memory of the title sequence. I would class properly losing my Bond virginity as TSWLM 28th March 1982.

    LTK & GE: Odeon Stafford

    TND: Odeon Leicester Sq (Premiere)

    DAD: Cineworld Telford

    CR: Star City Vue Birmingham

    QOS: Odeon Leicester Sq

    SF: Royal Albert Hall (Premiere)

    SP: Whiteleys Odeon Bayswater, Screen 4 (and I cant let this go without saying this has to be the worst screen in London. The screen is tiny and unlike every cinema in history the seats dont slope down towards the screen so you cant see over the head of the guy in front. Were still happy to charge me an extra 3 quid for 'premier seating' though. If the missus hadnt literally held me back I would have walked out before the film started and had waited a week or two. Beyond belief that a company like Odeon could pass this off as acceptable for what was the first showing of the film at 19.30 on opening night).

    In Toronto, Canada.
  • You all have had more interesting lives than me. I've seen them all in Dallas, TX with the exception of Skyfall, which I saw in Kansas (Salina? I think)

    I did have a cool experience seeing a double feature of DN and FRWL at an old theatre in Austin, but that wasn't the first time.
