20 minutes away, for me. Same theater I got to see STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN at, last year. Iíve read comments online from some people who live quite far away from participating theaters, but will be making the trip regardless. Itís not even a question for them of whether or not to go!

There is a theater about 10 minutes from my house that hosts Fathom Events, but not ALL Fathom Events. So, they'll beam live opera and some sports, even new specialty stuff (they carried RETURN OF THE CAPED CRUSADERS, the Adam West/Burt Ward animated release). But they don't usually do the classic movies. It's irksome. The next closest theaters that do are about 60 miles out. 

So, I may have to sit this SUPERMAN release out. We'll see. I was lucky enough to see it when it was originally released in theaters.

Same with BATMAN: MOTP.  But I would love to see both again.

And, of course, neither will be at the local theater.

I usually go to these re-releases on my own, but my 11-year old daughter, quite out of the blue, suddenly expressed interest in wanting to finally see SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE.  Even though I already own the DVD and the "extended editions" Blu-ray, she wants to wait and tag along with me when I see it in November.

Yay!

Just got my ticket.

I would have traveled all the way to Otisburg to see this on the big screen again!

I wonder if this will be the original original, replete with those occasional moments when Supermanís costume turns green!

If they really are remastering the movie for 4K, then there's a chance it'll be the original.

I believe that nearly all of the prior DVDs and Blu-Rays are based upon the digitally color-corrected master made for the 2000 home video release.


However, extended TV cut Blu-Ray from last year is completely authentic in its color-timing, right down to the turquoise suit used in the bluescreen shots. And I think that that transfer represents the best the movie has looked on home video. I'm not a fan of revisionist color-grading or excessive grain removal for older films.

I'm sure others on this Forum must have posted this link in the past, but the "Caped Wonder" website is a staggering, stupendous and invaluable resource, for anyone who wants to revisit the hype-machine that was in full force--before, during & after the Dec. 1978 premiere.


Truly wonderful stuff, many images and products I distinctly remember from back in the day (when I would have only been 6 years old!).
