We've had a couple of interesting movie threads here lately, and this topic just sort of popped into my head. I don't know that I've ever done it back-to-back at a theater, maybe as a pre-teen watching some 70's karate or slasher movie with friends, but I've done it three times I can remember at home:

The Shawshank Redemption
The Sixth Sense (mainly to look for all the clues I missed)
The Usual Suspects (same sort of thing, but mostly just because I liked it so much)

Edit: Shortened title a little so it would all fit . . . I hate truncated wor

first time I saw Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid I was fairly young. Saw that movie, at the theatre, maybe 5 times that week and have been hooked on Westerns and all things western since.

O Brother Where Art Thou a few nights in a row after seeing it.

anything Clint in a western.

heck, most westerns I'll watch all day.

and Kill Bill made it to my all time list too.

This is where personal taste really factors in! "Masked and Anonymous" (Bob Dylan). I'm about the only one I know who even liked it! If your mind is in the right place, you can get something different out of it each time you watch eat. Each scene works almost as a separate movie or idea. Parables ... deeper meanings ... or are they deep at all? Not unlike a Dylan song!

The Matrix, must have watched it 5 times in theatres and each time found new stuff

Geronimo a american legend,finnally a Native American movie where the stars were Native American,and the story was very close to the truth.. Wes Studi should have gotten a Oscar..

Shawshank redemption simply brilliant

Interesting topic. I've done this several times but for different reasons. Lately it's because I saw a movie with one kid and then the other wanted to see it too. Examples include:

The Dark Knight (I actually enjoyed it more the second time!)
Kung Fu Panda (a wonderful movie)
Napoleon Dynamite (probably saw it 4 or 5 times and enjoy reciting dialog)
Toy Story 2 (saw it 6 times altogether)

There are two very memorable movies I went by myself and returned the very next night, both by Stanley Kubrick:

2001: A Space Odyssey
Clockwork Orange

2001 blew my mind and I went back to see if I could understand it better. Interestingly, I saw it in a Cinerama theater with an enormous screen both times. The first night I was in the balcony, but the second night I sat in the center near the front -- the screen literally wrapped around me!

Clockwork Orange so shocked me with the level of gratuitous violence (tame by today's standards) that I couldn't figure out the story. I went back the second night and was able to look past the violence to enjoy the plot.

I actually PAID to see Richard Gere in "Breathless" two nights in a row. I was 20 and totally in love with Gere. I can't remember if the movie was that good or if Gere was just that sexy, but I did feel compelled to see it again...

I'll always watch Pulp Fiction, Shawshank Redemption, Ghost and Dirty Dancing and any of the Godfathers when they're on...can never get enough of those classics...

The Dark Knight (I also liked it much more the second time around)
Pirates of the Caribbean
American Beauty

I also always feel compelled to watch Jaws, Halloween, Dirty Dancing, and Stand by Me anytime they're on television.

"The Blues Brothers" LOL I've watched it at least 20 times since it came out.

"Rush" Gregg is in it and he is that sexy. I have the DVD and watch it often. Sometimes I just skip to the Gregg parts. The other actors were great, Jennifer Jason Lee and Iforgothisname. But a really good movie.

Cool thread!

Shawshank Redemption
Goodfellas
Braveheart
Lord of the Rings Trilogy
Fargo
Saving Private Ryan
Jaws(Probably saw that four times in a row when it came out in theatres.)

All of the above I remember seeing in the theatre back to back and I'm sure I'm leaving a few out. As far as at home viewing I'm sure my list would grow much bigger. Most recently I watched 'Bridge On The River Kwai' and enjoyed it so much I watched it again the next night.

Hey Droog, another cool thread would be what movies you have seen many times and can still watch without being at all bored. I swear I must have seen the first 'Die Hard' movie 30 or more times and I still enjoy it big time every time I watch it. Also movies that are based on true stories like 'Apollo 13' or 'Thirteen Days' or 'Alive' usually get many watches through the years.

The quality of movies the last few years has been going down IMO and I find myself watching more old stuff then new and rarely go to the theatre anymore.

Can't off the top of my head think of any movie that I immediately watched over but there are hundreds that I've liked and watched multiple times. Shawshank Redemption mentioned here a few times. That is one that I actually bought on DVD (even thought it's shown frequently on TV) so that I could watch when I wanted...great movie!

Some really great movies noted...but never watched one 'immediately' after seeing it.
I have watched many of these listed 2, 3 & 4 times.
'Gone With the Wind' being one.
