Halloween 4, 5 and original movies return to theaters and drive-ins worldwide

CineLife Entertainment, a division of Spotlight Cinema Networks, has announced that it is teaming up with Trancas International Films and Compass International Pictures to bring John Carpenter’s 1978 classic Halloween and the sequels Halloween 4: Michael Myers Returns and Halloween 5 back to movie theaters and drive-ins. They’ve done it before, they’re doing it again… and this time the re-release will be worldwide! More information can be found at THIS LINKwhere you can also buy tickets or even book the event.

The original “Halloween,” which premiered in October. 25, 1978, was directed and written by John Carpenter. It follows serial killer Michael Myers as he stalks and kills teenage babysitters on Halloween night. The film begins with six-year-old Michael killing his teenage sister on Halloween in 1963; he escapes 15 years later from a sanitarium and stalks Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her friends as they babysit.

The fourth Halloween film, also known as “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers”, was released in 1988 and centered on Michael Myers escaping from the sanitarium and trying to kill Laurie Strode’s daughter, portrayed by Danielle Harris. “Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers” focused on Myers waking up a year after being left for dead and again trying to kill his niece, again portrayed by Harris.

Bernadette McCabe, CineLife Entertainment’s Executive Vice President, made the following statement: “We are ecstatic to once again showcase the legendary Halloween franchise in cinemas and continue our strong partnership with Trancas International Films and Compass International Pictures. Halloween fans across the country have shown their unwavering appreciation for the iconic series over the years, and we’re beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to bring back such a well-received tradition.

Ryan Freimann, SVP of Trancas and Compass, added: “The overwhelmingly positive response from old and new fans who each year have the opportunity to see this iconic film on the big screen with an audience, coupled with the upcoming October release of director David Gordon Green’s new sequel, Halloween endsmakes us even more excited to continue screenings of this legendary franchise that elevates the Halloween spirit and brings fans together.

A great as it is that the first Halloween keeps coming back to theaters, I think it’s even cooler than that Halloween 4 and Halloween 5 keep going out with it. I wish I could catch one of these triple features one day, but chances are I’ll miss out again this year. If you’re in the same boat, the original Halloween can be seen at THIS LINK, Halloween 4 is HEREand Halloween 5 is HERE.
