Although fans have to wait until next year to witness the return of Michael Myers in Halloween Kills, fans will still be able to enjoy the return of the original Halloween film as well as classic sequels Halloween 4 and Halloween 5 at drive-in theaters this fall. It’s been revealed that Trancas International Films and Compass International Pictures are working alongside CineLife Entertainment to bring the three Halloween films to drive-in theaters as a safe way for fans to enjoy the classic slasher films on the big screen through October 31.
It’ll certainly be a great way to watch the films as well, because this copy of Halloween will be a restored and remastered digital print which was created under the supervision of the film’s cinematographer, Dean Cundey. The additions of Halloween 4 and Halloween 5 at drive-in theaters is simply icing on the cake.
As explained in a statement by Bernadette McCabe, CineLife Entertainment’s Executive Vice President:
“We are proud to partner with Trancas International Films and Compass International Pictures to bring this fan-favorite horror film to theaters worldwide. For generations of horror film fans who weren’t able to experience the original classic franchise in theaters, and even for those who remember when the films first premiered, we hope to capture the same thrilling and hair-raising atmosphere for all viewers to enjoy this quintessential Halloween experience.”
Ryan Freimann, SVP of Trancas and Compass had this to say:
“We are so excited to be bringing these films back, especially to drive-ins across the country where this iconic franchise launched. Now, with the fall season growing closer, the drive-in format is helping keep both Halloween spirit and the cinema experience alive in these unprecedented times.”
This is definitely a nice announcement during what could be a hard time for many Halloween and horror fans throughout this pandemic. It should definitely make the season a little more enjoyable.
