  • Jaws 3-D
  • The Man Who Wasn't There

  • nice list. I saw Jaws 3 in 3D theatrically. Only thing I remember was being stupidly excited, but I was only 13.

  • I got to see Friday The 13th 3D at a Southwestern Ohio drive-in for a Halloween horror marathon several years ago and it made me way happier than it should have. I wish the Drafthouse would screen that sometime. I would love to see it properly projected in a dark theater.

  • I went to see Jaws 3D with a neighborhood friend at the Cardinal Theatre at North Hills in Raleigh, NC. I was just 8 years old, the film started, a giant 3D fish head floated by, I got scared and started crying, my friend called his mom, she picked us up, we went home. Hahaha. Great memory.

  • what about Freddy's Dead. Sure it was a few days later and it's only 3d at the end but still

  • Silent Madness (1984) was also in 3-D. And Emmanuelle IV (1985) played in 3-D in Europe (the US release was shown flat).
