Which version are you talking about? There were at least two I know of (1976 and 2005).

Too bad this is not playing at a closer theater I frequent. It's at the Alamo theater in DTLA and I am not in the mood navigate through DTLA at the moment.

Shit! I missed it at the Frida Cinema in Santa Ana. I've been meaning to see something there, too.

Going to have to see if this is playing nearby. One of my favorite Carpenter films!
