    I did with 89's movie about 6 times in theaters when i was 8 and i had the merchandise such as t-shirts, comic adaptation, novel, action figures, CD soundtracks with Prince/Elfman (Still own them) and all that. I ate the cereal and i had the VHS film with NES game for christmas that year plus i watched/taped reruns of the 60's show and read/collected the comics especially Catwoman comics, Robin comics and Detective Comics.

    I saw Batman Returns 5 times in theaters at age 11 and had merchandise too including eating the cereal to watching/taping the animated show religiously.

    Who else had the same experiences like i did?

    I was 21 years old. I took my girlfriend to see the first showing on the Friday that it opened. She had zero interest in Batman, but was willing to indulge me. I imagine I took her to lunch afterwards. Maybe played some miniature golf. She always enjoyed kicking my ass on the miniature green. I did have a Batman T-shirt, but I don't believe it was directly tied in to the movie's merchandise. I would eventually add the soundtrack to my CD collection, but it wouldn't be until years later. I believe I only ever saw the movie that one time, in the theater. I own a copy on DVD

    Batman Returns was seen with a couple of pals. I remember being a little more immersed in the merchandising the second time around. Picked up two t-shirts, and a series of Slurpee cups from 7-11. Again, I'd add the soundtrack to my CD collection years later. I believe I only ever saw the sequel once, in theaters,as well. I also own a copy of it on DVD.

    Back then I was pretty heavy into Batman & Detective Comics. Never really followed any other Bat Family related titles.

    @Jakesully1981: How could you watch it if it was a 15 and you were 11?
