This weekend, Scotty G and I will be sitting in a movie theatre, and believing that a man can fly, thanks to the now year-round Cineplex Flashback Film Series.
As per the series’ promo, “…for the past 9 years Cineplex has hosted an annual week-long festival of cult classic films called Flashback Film Series (prev. The Great Digital Film Fest). This year, because of the Festival’s mounting success, they decided to turn it into a year-round series screening in 22 theatres across Canada (including Toronto). The first ever series line-up, which was also announced yesterday, features Richard Donner’s Superman, Being John Malkovich *20th anniversary, Thelma & Louise, Spaceballs and The Matrix *also 20th anniversary!”
I’m psyched for a bunch of these films, though Superman is number one on my list. I’ve seen it so many times at home, but never on the big screen, so this is definitely going to be an experience. Check out more info below about the Flashback Film Series, along with the line-up for the recently announced Classic Film Series as well, and what films you might want to experience on the big screen.
This winter, movie-lovers will have a chance to rediscover an 80-year-old romance in Gone with the Wind; flashback to the 70s with Richard Donner’s Superman; set sail with Hollywood icons Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn in The African Queen; take a trip down the rabbit hole in celebration of the 20th anniversary of The Matrix; and more!
For only $6.99 per screening, movie-lovers from coast-to-coast are invited to cozy up this winter and rediscover timeless classics the way they were meant to be seen – with an audience, on the big screen.
