It was Disney's 1979 film The Black Hole that first got me interested in space and general relativity (and AI, incidentally).

At the age of seven, The Black Hole was the first film I was obsessed with. I had the novelization, the behind-the-scenes book, the sticker book, the soundtrack (on vinyl!), etc.

Unlike Interstellar, The Black Hole did NOT feature particularly realistic portrayals but there's no denying the huge impact it had on me.
