I was about 6 when it came out and I'm sure I saw it the first or second weekend it came out. I loved every moment of it, a little surprised though because I was use to a more lighthearted bunch of turtles and the movie to me back then seemed quite dark. Now that I'm older I appreciate it a lot more for what they achieved.

I saw it when I was five. I was used to the cartoon, but the gritty realistic take didn't throw me off or anything. I enjoyed it. Till this day, the turtles vs. Shredder is one of the best fights I've seen.

I agree about the fight scene, that was awesome when they finally met face to face and who else thought the meditation scene was quite powerful?

Wow! I had cakes that featured the turtles on it, but never one with those kind of details. That must have been an awesome time!

We used to go to Pizza Hut every Friday night when I was a kid. I was there for Comin' Out of Their Shells. I played Street Fighter I there.

I saw TMNT The Movie in theaters. And I remember seeing things on Entertainment Tonight about it... including a clip of the campfire scene which made me freak the hell out because I thought that meant Splinter was dead. It was also my gateway into the Mirage comics. Up to that point it was all toys, cartoon and a couple Archie comics. When I picked up the Archie edition of the movie adaptation comic my mind was blown(much like Mikey's in the new show after tasting pizza for the first time). From then on I hunted down Mirage comics to the best of my ability. My first one was probably an issue of the Return to New York arc.

It's really fun for me to share those movies with my son and to watch the new show with him every week. We had just gotten into the 2003 series when the Nick series started... so we have tons of TMNT watching to do.

Awesome Re: Who saw the original movie in theaters?

I was 5 or 6 yo and I first saw it in Spanish& in Mexico while visiting relatives,I was used to seeing the cartoon in English so I felt weird going to see it in Spanish with English subtitles..But it was still an awesome experience and first thing I wanted to do when I got home in Texas was getting taken to go see it again.

I did. I was so excited to see it and I fell asleep due to boredom and woke up only to see the awful ending. Splinter taking down Shredder like that was embarassingly terrible.

I remembered seeing Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3 in theaters i saw the teaser to this movie and i was like "Wow, that looks awesome".

I saw it opening day when i lived in San Diego and WOW, what a movie. I saw it 4 times and loved it as i had and still own the CD soundtrack and had the cards, t-shirts, Burger King stuff and archie adaptation. I thought it was a great adaptation of the comics which i had read since i was 6 but fused it with the cartoon at the time.
I saw it opening weekend in San Diego as well LOL! It was on a Sunday and it was raining that afternoon. Boy was it packed, besides watching Robocop 2 in a crowded theater I feel the experience with the 1st TMNT movie was something to witness because it was very crowded with kids and parents, I can still picture the image in my head of a line wrapping around the theater with their umbrellas (it was raining) I was 7 at the time. Me and my family saw the flick at the now demolished Mann's Grove theater off of college station...saw a lot of great movies there. I remember my mother telling when I got home from school the Friday it came out we were gonna see it that Saturday but they were sold out. To this day, I still remember the smell and taste of nachos I had lol! I'll never forget the poster in the lobby (the one with all of them peeking from the manhole cover. The merchandise was crazy, I distinctly remember the Burger King tie-in's. Any-who, I saw the 2nd one in theaters when it released during spring break, my mom rented the 3rd one when it came out, I remember the kids in my class telling me it wasn't good because of the lack of shredder and foot soldiers.

I remember standing in line opening day to see it and I remember how packed the theater was. I was 8 at the time. To this day that was the longest line I've waited in for a movie. I wish I could go back to that day and know exactly what I felt watching it and feel the excitment again.

The 2nd time I saw it in theater wasn't as pleasent of a memory. My father was a bit of a drinker so from time to time mom and I would leave the house and go stay somewhere over night. Usually my grandma's or something but for some reason we went to town and got a hotel room. But before we did she took me to see TMNT again and when we left bought me a new TMNT coloring book and crayons to keep me something to do in the hotel room.

I also remember the day I saw it in a store to buy. We thought there was no way it could be out on VHS yet, thought it was a scam so we didn't get it, but then we got home (35 miles away from town) and told my Dad and he gave us the money to get get it and KFC chicken bucket meal which back then was like hitting jackpot for a 8 year old.
