My usual movie going friend made the suggestion of attending Close Encounters of the Third Kind which the 40th Anniversary edition is being shown in theaters. We attended the Sunday (9/3/17) afternoon showing at the Ward Theater which was lightly attended.

It has been a long while since I have seen it and my friend mentioned that she never seen it on the big screen before.

The showing had no previews but there was a 15 minute presentation before the movie that had Steven Spielberg, JJ Abrams and a couple of other people talking about making Close Encounters of the Third Kind and its effects on movie making since then.

Another thing I noticed in the ending credits was the inclusion of Lance Henriksen. I didn't notice him in the movie.
