Movies released into US theatres during 1980

Movies in order of release from January to December 1980 in US theatres. Specific movies and release date info listed across multiple websites sometimes don't match up so some positions in this list are best guesses. I'm going to try to watch them all. Why? I don't know. I like 80s movies and it sounds like a fun challenge. So starting with the year 1980...
