Over 100 years ago in 1878, "Sallie Gardner at a Gallop" was credited as being the first motion picture, and at the time consisted of only 24 black and white photographs lasting just over a minute. Since then, the film industry has transitioned to color then to three dimensional and now to four-dimensional movies. 

Today, there are hundreds of movies coming out every year, some of them like "The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and "The Justice League" with production budgets exceeding $300 million. And there are those like "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," "The Fate of the Furious" and "Beauty and the Beast," which break box office records and each makes over one billion dollars worldwide. 

Does your taste in movies give any clue as to how old you are? How would you plan your trip to the movies? Tell us everything from what you're planning on wearing to how much you're going to spend on a movie ticket to which snacks you're going to smuggle in, and we'll try to guess how old you are. When you're done, ask your friends and family to take it, to see if the quiz can get it right.
