This is such a good idea. Instead of cranking out cheap remakes of classic movies, studios could just allow audiences to experience them on the big screen again (or for the first time depending on when they were made) It was kinda like when the original Star Wars trilogy was released a few years back. Being too young to have seen them in the cinema I could finally have that experience albeit with more CG and an added dance number)

There are several posts already about this on various forum pages.

Definitly want to see The Thing at the cinema. And if the studios are listening...

ALIENS!!!

Would love to see this become a commonplace practice - any ideas if it's something that'll be happening in the majority of cinemas or just a very few selected cinemas?

I love this idea - went to see From Russia with Love in the cinema last week, was fantastic!! I agree with miketang99, why make great films shit when you can just rerelease the originals and open them to a new generation. I doff my cap to Universal, take note other distributers out there.

The classic film, Batman '89 is celebrating its 20th Anniversary next month and should definitely be back in enough theatres as celebration for the millions of fans out there. I know of several theatres in various states showing it around the 23rd of next month, marking its release date 20 years ago. It should definitely be in more though. This is one of the best treats you can see on the big screen.

Animal House is fun but surely there are films from any studio that are more deserving of being seen on a big screen:The Collector/65/Kiss Me, Deadly/56/The Magniificent Ambersoms/44/Point Blank/67/Prince of the City/81/Straight Time/77/They Shoot Horses, Don't They?/69/Medium Cool/69/The General/27/Diary of a Mad Housewife/70/...

All these movies have one thing in common - They were all distributed by Universal Studios.
So why are they not re-releasing the best film they ever made?

JAWS

I saw it again a few years ago at Cineworld in Newport and the print they showed was in dire condition, in fact it broke at one point. But it needs to be seen on the big screen.
A wasted opportunity, and as good as it is, I really don't see Animal House being as big a crowd puller.
