Detroit Film Theatre
Cinetopia Film Festival: Surprise Screening
Friday, June 06, 2014
On Friday, June 6th at 7:00 PM, the Cinetopia International Film Festival will present a special, one-time-only “surprise screening” in the Detroit Film Theatre. Though we’re bound to secrecy and can’t reveal the movie’s title, we can tell you that this classic and beloved blend of music and comedy – which had a profound impact on popular culture upon its original release - is celebrating a milestone anniversary this year. To commemorate the occasion, a sparkling new restoration from the original camera negative has been made under the personal supervision of the film’s director, and will be headed to the nation’s movie theaters in a little over a month. Additionally, the legendary soundtrack has been completely remastered, giving the entire experience a stunning new depth and a bright, rich new sonic clarity. Described by critic Roger Ebert as “one of the great life-affirming landmarks of the movies,” it will open in a nationwide re-release in July – but for one night only, Detroit-area movie and music lovers will have the chance to see it on the big screen a month in advance!
