On its 40th anniversary, enjoy Steven Spielberg’s science fiction adventure in a new 4K digital print for the first time. Made in 1977, following the success of Jaws, Close Encounters Of The Third Kind is a compelling story about a group of people who try and contact alien intelligence.
In the midst of a series of unexplained events, electrical lineman Roy Neary encounters a UFO on a deserted road whilst investigating a large-scale power outage. Roy becomes increasingly obsessed with UFOs and subliminal messaging following his experience, distancing himself from his wife and children but drawing him closer towards parallel investigations being conducted by scientists, the military and other survivors of encounters who are attempting to communicate with the mysterious otherworldly presence. Audiences will also be treated to a short about the making of the film which includes an all new interview with Steven Spielberg.
This film replaces the advertised screening of Blade Runner: The Final Cut, which was cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control.
