My family didn't watch that many movies. We saw a couple in the local drive in and apparently Bambi was too much for this five-year-old boy.

The first movie I saw in Japan was in the early 80s and was probably similar to US movie theaters in the 60s, although there were obvious differences.

People would just show up at random times. You would start watching the movie from that point, watch the next movie in the double feature and then the first was again, leaving when you got to the point where you had started. Smoking was allowed of course. It wasn't banned until much later than in the US.
