John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN is Getting a Theatrical Re-Release
If you’ve never seen John Carpenter’s classic horror film Halloween on the big screen before, your opportunity to do that is coming! The film is getting a theatrical re-release on September 27th and will pop up on over 1,000 screens for one night only.
This is three weeks before the David Gordon Green-directed sequel is released in theaters. That movie has been met with a lot of positive reviews and a few negative ones. But I’ve been hearing a lot more good things than bad.
It seems appropriate that fans would get the opportunity to see the original Halloween movie on the big screen before they see the upcoming sequel. I’ve seen Halloween on the big screen once before and I saw it with an awesome audience so it was an extremely fun movie going experience. I plan on catching it this time around as well.
I should also mention that the film has been digitally restored and remastered under the supervision of original cinematographer Dean Cundey. Carpenter had this to say in a statement:
“I’m thrilled to have the original make its way back into theaters, as we prepare for the release of the sequel. Having both back in theaters this fall is remarkable.”
The announcement of the re-release came from CineLife Entertainment, the event cinema division of Spotlight Cinema Networks, which has teamed up with Compass International Pictures and Trancas International Films.
