Over the past few years, I've been making it a habit to check out at least one or two theatrical re-releases of classic films, usually sponsored by Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies, along with participating Cinemark theaters... in the recent past, I finally got to see the likes of JAWS, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY and SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE the way they were meant to be seen.
So now their 2019 schedule is up, and for anyone interested (at least in the States), you might want to check these out in the next 12 months (the ones in bold are either my faves, or ones I might take my kids to see):
Jan: THE WIZARD OF OZ
Feb: MY FAIR LADY
Mar: TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
May: TRUE GRIT and STEEL MAGNOLIAS
June: FIELD OF DREAMS
Aug: HELLO, DOLLY!
Sept: LAWRENCE OF ARABIA and THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION
Oct: ALIEN (hell yeah!!!)
Nov: THE GODFATHER, PART II
Dec: WHEN HARRY MET SALLY...
Nothing against the ones not highlighted in bold, but to me, they don't exactly scream-out to be seen outside the home (most seem--I don't know--too intimate, maybe?).
Really excited about the ALIEN 40th Anniversary release... my final holy grail of '70s film favorites that I missed in their initial run (in ALIEN's case, I was only 6 at the time!). Here's the link for more info:
Anything of interest for anyone else?
