SCREENING

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Ongoing

Dir. Steven Spielberg. 1977, 137 mins. New 35mm print of the director’s cut. With Richard Dreyfuss, Teri Garr, Melinda Dillon, François Truffaut. This operatic tale of a group of humans (including Dreyfuss’s suburban everydad) preparing to make contact with mysterious outer-space visitors is an emotionally stirring, visually jaw-dropping journey. Featuring Oscar-winning cinematography by the great Vilmos Zsigmond, Spielberg’s first story about extraterrestrial life is out-of-this-world moviemaking. On the big screen, that’s one mother of a spaceship.
