Close Encounter of the Third Kind – 40th Anniversary

November 17, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - December 9, 2017 @ 10:00 pm UTC+11


We are thrilled to be showcasing the 4K 40th Anniversary edition of CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND. Audiences will also be treated to a short about the making of the film which includes an all new interview with Steven Spielberg. Tickets on sale now.

Coupling grand scale storytelling with humane drama, and famed for its epic Vilmos Zsigmond visuals and bold John Williams score, Close Encounters of the Third Kind is a prototypical modern blockbuster and a highlight in the filmography of the director who first mastered the form.

40 years after its release, its look, sound and tone continue to resonate throughout the sci-fi genre and beyond. Close Encounters of the Third Kind remains a nostalgic touchstone for audiences raised on the cinema of Steven Spielberg and a high benchmark for fellow filmmakers following in his footsteps.

Produced by Sony Pictures Entertainment to mark the film's 40th anniversary, this new 4K digital print returns all of the original majesty and magic to Spielberg's beloved creation.
