This would be an absolutely incredible event to take part in. Anyone who is a fan of movies, movie making and especially horror movies should get out to this. I'd love to see Frankenstein on the Big Screen.

All I know is that my local theater is showing The Birds on the big screen this month and Jaws. Those are well worth seeing on the big screen. I'm loving this idea of bringing these classics back to theaters.

That awesome. are you going to go see it?

darklordzor1539d ago

Oh Hell yes I'm going to. I'll be there with bells on, especially for the Jaws screening. I still consider Jaws to be one of the main films that influenced my decision to go into filmmaking.

I definitely wouldn't mind going to see Jaws on the big screen. That would be cool. Such a great movie. I really wish we had one of those theaters around here that was somewhat dedicated to just showing older films. Or at the very least had regular "events" doing that.
