Close Encounters of the Third Kind

NOVA ICONIC! Encounter Steven Spielberg's beloved sci-fi classic as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of a film that helped shape modern cinema as we know it. Fully restored and presented in high definition digital. Featuring a special 7-minute introduction to play before the film, including a brand-new interview with Steven Spielberg.

As a group of international scientists begin to recognise that a series of inexplicable occurences are linked, everyman Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) has a 'close encounter' with an unidentified flying object that leaves him a changed man. Suddenly haunted by a vision of a place he has never been, so begins an obsession to discover who - or what - is the source of his newfound infatuation. Co-starring Francois Truffaut and Teri Garr, Spielberg's Oscar-winning avant-garde epic is a must-see for any dedicated fan of cinema.
