Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (Re: 2017) Cert. PG Picture house at FACT

  • Running time147 minutes
  • GenreClassic

Director: Steven Spielberg. Starring: Richard Dreyfuss, Francois Truffaut, Teri Garr, Melinda Dillon. USA 1977. 137 mins.

For its 40th anniversary, Steven Spielberg’s genre-defining masterpiece returns to cinemas in a dazzling 4K restoration of the director’s cut to win over audiences all over again. This brilliantly paced tale follows two groups of people driven by the prospect that humans are not alone in the universe. The first is a team of scientists on a trail of mind-boggling evidence that leads them to the eventual landing site of alien visitors; the other a group of ordinary people who gravitate to the same spot, plagued by strange visions after close encounters with extra-terrestrial life. The opening sequences masterfully evoke a sense of foreboding, but as the film builds towards its stunning climax, fear gives way to wonder. It’s a tone shift that set Spielberg’s idealistic vision apart from all other big-screen alien encounters at the time, and raised the bar for every first-contact film that would follow.

Audiences will also be treated to a short about the making of the film, which
includes an all-new interview with Steven Spielberg.
