More often than not, we go to a movie screening and either lose or discard the ticket stub. I used to do that myself, but one day I decided to keep them all(good film or bad) as a sort of a nastalgic keepsake that will certainly NEVER be re-printed or re-issued.

I've posted this in the memorabilia section because I feel it's just that---memorabilia(despite the fact there's no market for selling old movie ticket stubs unlike the market for concert ticket stubs).

I'll start the pics off with my H4 ticket stub from November 5,1988.

That's a nice keepsake, Josh. I remember you showing it to us on the UHMB. You're lucky to have held on to that momento for so long. Makes me wish I kept my ticket stub for H20 and H:R. Do you remember the H4 theater experience well? My mom saw H1-3 and recalls little - she should've known that her future son would be interested to know these things :p

Man, I wish I still had mine from the Halloween II and Dead and Buried double feature.

I had it for awhile.

Tossed it when I turned 18 and split from home.

Nice to know I'm not the only one who keeps his ticket stubs now. I started late, 2001, but still got Res. (I think) and an original Halloween stub when they showed it in my town on Oct. 2001. Seeing the original on the big screen is a whole new experience. Amazing. Funny you mention 4, since that was the first Halloween I was old enough to see in theatres. By then I was well versed in 1-3 off VHS & cable, and thinking how 3 sucked w/o Michael in it (hey, I was a teenager, now I know better) and was sooo ready for it. Memories.....

LOL

We're lucky here, there's still a theater in town that only costs, coincidentally, $3.50 (a whopping $4.00 if you want to sit in the last 6 rows of rocker chairs).

It's clean, with cheap snacks, and has been there since 1946 and holds 650 people. 3 flicks, 6 showings, back-to-back-to-back everyday. Usually they're movies that are at the end of their theater run.

I take the family there once a month or so.

Around last Halloween, saw Saw II there, and maybe someday I'll rent it for a late showing of Halloween and Halloween II back-to-back during a Halloween weekend.

Thanks Scott :)

I can't believe that the Maine Mall/ General Cinemas is now a Church! I saw such great films as Empire Strikes Back, Return Of The Jedi, H4, and Back To The Future in that theater.

Very cool, Josh. I started doing what you did after the remake of Dawn of The Dead came out. It's kind of sad, though, to look at, because it shows I haven't been to the movies as much as I would like to.

As you have passed that habit onto me. I am glad you think of these things cause it saved my ass for the star wars midnight showing and all movies to follow. I keep them all and make sure they are safe. It has become a hobbie to me. Thanks again Josh for a brilliant idea. YOU ARE THE BEST COLLECTOR OUT THERE AND KEEP COLLECTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D I will always be proud to have known you!!!

I've been collecting and saving my ticket stubs since '98 I believe. I know they go as far back as The Mask of Zorro and The Matrix.

I'd show you my pristine Resurrection stub but I'm sure you guys can do without.:p

i find it funny as hell really what some of the places here in maine and i am sure everywhere have turned into now. rumford went down hill so bad after i left and funny enough they are starting to rebuild now but seeing what is put into some buildings like you said a cinema now a church and so on makes ya laugh. if they only knew some of what was shown in that theater they might not have put a church there lol
