Close Encounters of the Third Kind is heading back to the big screen starting September 1st and will be playing for one week to celebrate the film becoming 40 years old! Return to the classic story of making first contact. Steven Spielberg wrote and directed this classic sci-fi epic that tells the story of a blue-collar worker whose life is changed after coming into contact with an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO).
Close Encounters was supposed to be released during the summer of 1977 but due to some production issues, the film hit theaters in November as a limited release and went wide in December. On a budget of $20 million, the film was a massive box office success grossing $337 million and earning critical acclaim. The film was inducted to the National Film Registry for preservation in 2007.
Grab your tickets and witness the three encounters: sighting of a UFO, physical evidence, and first contact. Don’t miss your chance!
