SCREENING

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Saturday, Sep 30, 2017

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Steven Spielberg. 1977, 137 mins. New 4K digital restoration 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. This new digital restoration of the director’s cut was issued on the occasion of the film’s 40th anniversary.
