CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND Returns To Theaters September 1st!

Wow, this is cool!

In honor of the 40th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s classic feature CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, Sony Pictures has recently done a 4K restoration and is planning on re-releasing the film in theaters on September 1st.

I have to tell you, I hadn’t seen this movie since I was really, really young, and I actually just revisited it with friends. It holds up pretty well, has some spooky moments & imagery, and quite frankly, there’s no other movie quite like it, especially coming out of Hollywood, back then or now!

Have a look at the trailer to celebrate the upcoming theatrical re-release!

The new Blu-Ray and 4K Ultra HD arrives on September 19th.

Side-note: for our readers in the Los Angeles area, if you want to see Spielberg’s other alien classic, E.T. is playing at the New Beverly Cinema on August 19th and 20th as part of their weekend kiddie matinees! Details here!
