As it always does around this time of the year, John Carpenter‘s classic Halloween is returning to select theaters for the spooky season. The fun kicks off nationwide on September 27.
CineLife Entertainment®, the event cinema division of Spotlight Cinema Networks, teams up with Compass International Pictures to bring the seminal 1978 original classic John Carpenter’s Halloween back to select theaters across North America.
In the film, Michael Myers has spent the last 15 years locked away inside a sanitarium under the care of child psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis after brutally murdering his sister when he was 6-years old. On October 30, 1978, Myers escapes and makes his way back home to Haddonfield, Illinois, turning a night of tricks and treats into something much more sinister for the locals, including Laurie Strode, the star-making role for Jamie Lee Curtis.
“I’m thrilled to have the original make its way back into theaters,” says director John Carpenter.
Fans will be treated to view big screen presentations of the restored and remastered digital print, created under the supervision of the world-renowned cinematographer, Dean Cundey.
