Post What Movie(s) Have You Watched The Most Times In Theaters?


I believe there is a thread here on this topic, but meh, who knows how many pages back it is and who wants to search for that...

For me,

Titanic: Probably close to a dozen times as I tagged along with various family members and family friends. Everyone was going to see this movie around me.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace and Pokémon: The First Movie are probably second. Maybe not up to a dozen times, but I kept going back to these as a kid while they were in theaters. I'm guessing seven or eight times.

The How to Train Your Dragon Trilogy. I saw the first one at least four or five times in theaters, and I know I saw both sequels five times each. I consider this the greatest film trilogy, my favorite at least.

Frozen I believe we saw four times. I enjoyed it, sure, but the husband really, really loved it, so we saw it a lot.

Next would probably go to Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and 3. I saw them three or four times in theaters.

After all these... there are many films I watched at least three times in theaters: Pokémon 3, Sweeney Todd, Hercules, Shrek 2, Star Wars 3, and Harry Potter's 4 and 7-2 are all three times I think. I'm sure there are a few more older films, too. Can't think of anything more recent. Generally don't see a movie more than twice in theaters anymore.

The most times I've seen a film in theaters is 3 times, for two films.

Casino Royale (2006) and Terminator Salvation.

And same, twice still happens rather frequently, but have not had the urge / time / commitment to see a film more. Caveat, the last +10 years I've lived in China, with a limited offering of (good) films.

Titanic — 5

Phantom Menace — 4
Matrix Reloaded — 4
Fellowship of the Ring — 4
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone — 4

Finding Nemo — 3
Space Jam — 3
Spider-man — 3
Attack of the Clones — 3
The Two Towers — 3
Avatar — 3
For Richer or Poorer — 3

I think there’s probably a few more in the “3” range that I don’t remember.

I never see a movie more than once anymore. I think the most recent second viewing was Arrival in 2016. Or maybe The Last Jedi? Pretty sure I saw that twice.

I would like to see Everything Everywhere All At Once again in theaters.

I doubt I will ever see another film at the cinema more than three times, but I did see The Expendables seven times back in 2010. To elaborate on stuffp's China point, the dearth of foreign releases in China means that when a good film does come out (and particularly if it's a Stallone one!) all bets are off and I'm a regular at the cinema. I saw it six times while in a third-tier Chinese city, and I asked the staff for the posters, which was a first for them. I even think some money exchanged hands.

Anyway, I also saw The Expendables 2 six times, The Expendables 3 and Escape Plan both four times. My three-time movies are La La Land, Avatar, and The Great Wall, and there's a bunch of double-viewings, but most recently Wrath of Man.

When I first started going to movies I used to sneak into a second show just about every time I went to the theater. Sometimes even a third! So any movie I like from that era ended up with several watches. Scooby-Doo is tops with 6 and Two Towers had 5. Pretty sure I even went to Eight Legged Freaks a few times.


In the years since, only Avatar and Endgame have earned three trips to the theater.

Promising Young Woman - 6
Call Me By Your Name - 6
Love, Simon - 5
Black Swan - 4
Baby Driver - 4
The Heat - 4
A Quiet Place - 4

I might be forgetting something else I've seen 4 times. I've seen many many many movies 3 times. That's usually the magic number for me.

Yeah I never stopped going to the movies during the pandemic. Theaters were relatively empty so it felt very low-risk. Like my friend and I saw Freaky opening night and there were 4 other people in a big auditorium. It was similar other times I went. Promising Young Woman did have more people though. It was in a smaller theater and the first 3 times I went it was basically full. Seats were far enough apart though so I still didn't feel like it was a huge deal. Masks were required until you were in your seat too. If Promising Young Woman hadn't left I wouldn't have stopped going. I wasn't even tired of it by that last viewing and most movies I would be. I brought 16 people with me over the course of those 6 viewings. A big part of it was wanting to support theaters because they were struggling. But I was also legitimately obsessed with the movie and wanted to support it. I am a big fan of the movie theater experience. It's so much better than watching movies at home IMO.

Interesting. I saw Tenet in theaters as well as Wonder Woman but there were relatively few movies I was interested at the time otherwise I would have gone more

Wow - didn't realize people went so many times to the same film. I don't think I've ever seen a film more than twice in a theatre.

The one's I've seen twice:

FOTR
ROTK
The Dark Knight (both times in IMAX)
Casino Royale
Oceans Eleven
Senna
Mystic River
Forrest Gump
The Lion King (a decade apart)

The only ones I could one day potentially make x3 are FOTR/ROTK.

So I just went to see a film 4 times in the theater for the first time, it's the one you probably expect, Maverick. Just a great experience seeing it on the big screen, though I enjoyed my second viewing, which was on a smaller screen than the others, the best. The second time I was looking forward to it more than the first time wanting to live all over again what I loved the first time, also that was the only time without intermission. The 3rd and 4th times were more about appreciating the art of certain parts and it as a whole.

This would be the only one that I want to see again in a theatre.

Did you have intermissions on your screenings?
