Your Memorable Double Features

What's some of your memorable double features at the theatre?


Our town had a 'second run', or late run, movie theatre, called Glenwood, that would show a double feature for, as I recall, $1. They were films that had just left the more expensive theatres, but wouldn't be out on VHS for quite some time. My folks would take us kids to see some cool films.

One great double feature was:

Poltergeist, and Firefox (a little remembered Clint Eastwood film were he steals the Soviet Union's new fighter plane).

But one time when my folks let us kids bring a friend, we had to walk out of the theatre at the beginning of the second feature cause it was...

Dragonslayer, and Body Heat

When we took the kids to the drive-in back in the day it would be double features but i just can't remember them. The drive-in had three screens and while you couldn't hear the other movies, you could see them. I remember seeing "Goonies".

I think double features were before my day. I still see ads for the rare double feature event at art theaters.

Hard to beat: A Fistful of Dollars and For A Few Dollars More.
Back when driver's licenses didn't have photographs on them I borrowed a friend's to go see:
Midnight Cowboy and Death Rides A Horse. Didn't think (and still don't) it was fair to pair an M-rated movie with an R-rated one. Wanted to hear Ennio Morricone's score to the Lee Van Cleef co-feature really really bad.

what'd ya think of Midnight cowboy? Probably not a movie a teen kid would be interested in. It's pretty weird, and probably a bit existential in the sense of how loose the plot is.

Wasn't my favorite movie but it was watchable. Enjoyed Dustin Hoffman's performance though.
