Because when I think of Summer, I think of these films.

Alamo Drafthouse has a better shtick going with their "Summer of '82" series that's going on.

I already own all of these but The Exorcist, but I may be willing to pay to see a few of them on the big screen - especially if I can get a few of my friends to come with me.

Wow. Shocked that my city is actually participating in this. I can see myself trying to make it to a couple of those.

Not every place has an Alamo Drafthouse or any theater that shows older movies for that matter. This is the only chance for many people to see titles like this on a big screen.

I don't think the title of the series is meant the way you think.

It's Classic movies being shown in the Summer, not Classic Summer movies.

Amazon Local/Fandango is doing a $12 voucher for only $6 right now. I think there is about a day left in the deal.

I was able to get tickets to both The Exorcist and North By Northwest screenings for $12 total.

8 films? I'm glad I have this in town for the summer. All in 35 or 70mm. And the Draftouse Summer of '82 series. Anyone else have summer film series in their town?

That makes a bit more sense. Digital, I assume?

I'd like to see a road show of classic Summer films play across the country. I'll bet the right titles would do great business.

According to the press release, yes.

Theaters showing older films in the Bay Area has gone up and down over the last couple years. We have an amazing amount of theaters catering to all tastes, but lately the screenings of older films has sort of gone down.

Years ago I remember Landmark Theaters ran something called 'Landmark After Dark'. A couple of theaters in the Bay Area participated in this and they screened everything from Escape From New York and old Bond films to Cannibal Holocaust (new 35mm print) and Suspiria. Not really sure what happened to but it's been long gone.

There are still places like the Castro Theatre that do Double Features and run a lot of older films, but places like that are far and few between now outside of specialized Film Festivals in the Bay Area. Santa Cruz has it a little better since one of their theaters (The Del Mar) does special Midnight showing for Cult Classics and so on.

I would prefer the original version of The Exorcist, though.

Too bad the local theater is in an area known as The Plaza; Very trendy and crowded so parking is a pain.

Wasn't mentioned in the press release, but I really hope it's the Theatrical Version and not the Extended.

When i saw the Godfather in XD a few months ago at the cinemark in Arundel Mills, i was SHOCKED at how full the theater was. Id say it was 95% full with a theater room that can hold near 400 people

I support any theatre chain that does this. Looking back is forward thinking.I agree. Our local Movie Tavern was showing Poltergeist last Tuesday. I had never been there before and figured this would be the perfect opportunity. The projection was digital and the screen was not the correct ratio, so there were black bars on the top and bottom. Still, it was great to see it on the big screen. Only seven people besides my group showed up.

By the way, Movie Tavern is a terrible concept if you're seeing a film for the first time. The waitress didn't even show up to take our orders until a half hour into the movie. I thought the meal would be served before the lights went down, so this was terribly distracting. She brought the food out right as Robbie was being swallowed by the giant tree. :doh:

We were basically eating in the dark because the table lighting was not working. Add in some dirty floors, stale sandwiches and having to fumble for loose change in the dark -- it's not an experience I would recommend.

Just got back from the North By Northwest screening.

First off it was heart-warming to see so many people (of all ages) show up to the screening at my local theater. There was so much chatter while people were walking out and so many smiles!

The digital print was beautiful! I haven't seen the transfer on the Blu-Ray, but there were some spots that looked uneven. Either way it was beautiful!

Saw Bridge on the River Kwai a few weeks ago, and was a little annoyed by how dark the print/projection was. Still, I'll probably at least go back to see The Great Escape and The Sting since it's been a long time since I watched either and because I overall enjoyed the experience of seeing them in a theater (though I was the youngest person in the audience by a considerable margin.) I'm also going to see the Frankenstein/Bride of Frankenstein double feature they're having in a few weeks.

I'm very curious in seeing how the DCP of 'Mary Poppins' will look, but since '20,000 Leagues' had a full on 4K restoration, and it's a wide 2.55 AR film, this should look amazing on the XD screen!

speaking of which, Landmark threw 'Cleopatra' onto their small screen 1 over at Bethesda (this afternoon and tonight) - um, no thanks.

I'm going to have to try to take the boy to see E.T. It's one of his favorite movies right now and he'll probably get a kick out of seeing it on the big screen.

in the DC area the Angelika over in Merrifield Virginia is doing a Spielberg mini-retrospect too:

"Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" this week (6-14 and 15)

"E.T" (6-21 and 22)

"Close Encounters of the Third Kind" (director's cut) 35mm print (6-28 and 29)

Jaws was last week - sorry...

Yeah, Cinemark is doing a Spielberg series. (wednesdays and sundays)

What I saw had Schindler's List as the 4th film instead of Close Encounters.

yeah, I was digressing and speaking of another chain the Angelika here in the DC area that is also doing a weekly Spielberg screenings. Cinemark's fourth film is indeed 'Schindler's List'

Yeah, but getting the opportunity to see anything more than three months old on a big screen is getting rarer and rarer, so I'm taking what I can get these days.

in the DC area the Angelika over in Merrifield Virginia is doing a Spielberg mini-retrospect too:

"Close Encounters of the Third Kind" (director's cut) 35mm print (6-28 and 29)

God, it's sad that 35mm is becoming such a special event, the death of a film is a sad thing, you don't know what you have till it's gone, as they say. But working the job I do and seldom having time off doesn't help either :p, nor does living in the burbs.

Alan Smithee
06-11-13, 01:34 AM
Also sad that in 35mm's last years, many theaters didn't employ people who knew how to show it properly. Digital has been an improvement at most theaters for that very reason (no damaged prints or mis-framing- don't miss the changeover cues either as those took me out of the movie and reminded me of how long it had been running.)

I saw Cleopatra during that one day only thing at a Regal theater. I was the only one in the theater.

Won passes to Jaws at the Angelica but wasn't able to make it. Hope to check out the other Spielberg stuff, and maybe find a Cinemark in the area.
