I was having panic attacks through the summer of 1998, and being in a movie theater was one of the things that brought them on. It sucked, because I was always going to movies.

I think the first one was when I went to see Armageddon (7/98). It was so shit-awful that I had a panic attack. At the time, I had to be at work at 4AM, so in my mind, I had to be in bed by 8PM or I would die. So I walked out about 10 minutes before the end.

I had another one during "Knock Off" with Jean-Claude Van Damme, but again, it's partly because the movie was such a turd.

I walked out of "The Parent Trap" but came back in; I was with my family, and was too embarassed to explain why I couldn't come back in.

After a few months, I was able to enjoy movies again (what few there were to enjoy). The first one I sat all the way through was "Antz" (premiered 10/98). I think conquering that fear helped me get over the panic disorder eventually.

I wish I could have walked out on "Date Movie" but I was with some people. I just bitched very loudly about it afterwards.
