Lucas Centennial Summer: Close Encounters of The Third Kind
Jul 22, 2022
Gorgeous and epic in every way, Stephen Spielberg's first extraterrestrial opus wowed audiences 45 years ago with groundbreaking visual effects and an iconic score by longtime collaborator John Williams. Close Encounters of the Third Kind tracks Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss), an average dad who witnesses an otherworldly event, and Claude Lacombe (François Truffaut), a scientist tracking unidentified flying objects around the world. Experience Spielberg's singular vision for the film in a 4K-restored director's cut on the big screen at the Lucas Theatre for the Arts.
