My girls have been going to the movies since about 18months. It's raining here today and hubby is away so I'm taking all 4 of them, this'll be the first time other then the drive ins for our 16month old.

We took DS to see Madagascar 3 at the cinema when he was 2.5 years old and he was awesome! He sat through the entire movie and was so well behaved.

My DS has been going to the movies since he was about 1. Both children and grown up movies. I normally wait until the movie has been out a few weeks then go to the first session of the day. There us normally only one or two other people in there. I am always prepared to leave if he gets antsy (hasn't happened yet) and make sure I take toys for him. I get down on the floor and play with him and more or less see the movie!

4 is when I take my boys to the movies. I have attempted younger but it was a massive fail. My boys are very active and have a hard time sitting still for that long.

He was about 13 months and it wasn't successful. But it was good when he was 2.5+

As babies, I haven't had a problem.
But taking a 1½yo-3yo for the first time, I often had to take them out halfway through.
I think if it is something they are used to, then there wont be a problem, but an unfamiliar toddler is likely to find it too long to cope with.

I took mine as babies so i could feed them, never had an issue..
At 2 they would sit and watch a movie, if they liked it. Took all mine to see Despicable Me 2 on the weekend, they were great.

I think 5 for DS1. DS2 was taken to the drive ins from about 3 but didn't go to the actual cinema until almost 5.

Thanks all for the replies. Sounds like at 3 he should be ok. He'll sit through a movie at home (well almost), so we might wait till its been our for a couple of weeks and take him as a treat (maybe after school holidays).
