Probably Jurassic Park or the Lion King, they were on penny theaters after their original run and my mom would take me there while she went shopping. Even without those I saw Jurassic Park 3D re-release 3 times plus at least one time the original run I saw it minimum 4 times.

There are many movies I saw 3 or 2 times, my logic was that if I really liked the movie I needed to see it as many times in theaters as I could. This started with Star Wars episode II I know I saw Batman Begins and Superman Returns at least twice.

The reason why anyone would want to watch a movie is you'll never see it with the same experience again, the big screen, sound etc. No matter how good your home theater is it just isn't the same.

I don't really watch movies more than once, I watched Episode VII twice and Jurassic World twice. I'll likely see Jurassic World 2 twice as well but that's about it.

I can't even be enticed to see movies I'm interested in while they're in theaters anymore, it's just such an annoying experience most of the time that it isn't worth it. In general I only watch about 5 hollywood films per year, if you count indie/international movies that number doubles.

It was probably the original Beauty and the Beast. I saw the IMAX re-release in 2002, the sing-along edition in 2010 and the 3D re-release twice in 2012. Plus, I briefly got to see it during its original release while my mom was in line getting snacks for us one day.

I'm pretty much the same way.

For me it was Attack of the Clones. I want to say 16 times(at least 12, but no more than 18 ). Really sad actually considering it's probably the worst of the franchise(after Phantom Menace). At the time though, I was super into Star Wars, with the EU playing no small part in that(which is also what ended up mostly driving me away from the franchise too).

I wasn't expecting this to be a difficult question, I'll be honest I don't really know. I don't think I've seen a movie in the theater more than 3 times.

I think I saw Trainspotting three times, but that's mostly because it was playing at a theater on campus and if you were a student you got in ridiculously cheap.

I've seen a bunch of movies in the theater twice.
Pacific Rim, Thor Ragnarok, surely the 1990 Turtle movie.
The first Avengers movie I know I saw at least twice in the theater.
