A brand new 4k restoration of Stephen Spielberg’s 1977 sci-fi adventure, experience it back on the big screen for the 40th Anniversary.

In the midst of a series of unexplained events, electrical lineman Roy Neary encounters a UFO on a deserted road whilst investigating a large-scale power outage. Roy becomes increasingly obsessed with UFOs and subliminal messaging following his experience, distancing himself from his wife and children but drawing him closer towards parallel investigations being conducted by scientists, the military and other survivors of encounters who are attempting to communicate with the mysterious otherworldly presence.

“What the film is ‘about’, in a way, is its own illusionism, the process by which it creates a world we are invited to share.”– Sight and Sound
