Close Encounters of the Third Kind 40th Anniversary

Fresh off what was dubbed an unforgettable event in honor of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the Alamo Drafthouse has yet another incredible screening experience planned, this time for a sci-fi classic that’s turning 40 this year.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind is celebrating its 40th anniversary, and while we already know Steven Spielberg’s film is returning to theaters in September for the milestone anniversary, we had no idea Alamo Drafthouse was going to do something like this again to celebrate their own 20th anniversary.

Partnering with SyFy for their 25th anniversary this year, Alamo Drafthouse has planned a 40th anniversary screening of Close Encounters of the Third Kind at the base of Devil’s Tower, the same natural, national monument that is an important piece of the film’s story. A similar event was planned as part of Alamo’s Rolling Roadshow many years ago, but this sounds even more epic.
