The new Halloween reboot will arrive in theaters in about a month, and even though the film is garnering solid reviews, we know that a lot of people just aren’t into reboots. And if you’re one of those people, then we’ve got some good news for you.
In honor of the film’s 40th anniversary, the original Halloween is set to return to theaters for a limited run, meaning if you want to go to the theater this fall to see Michael Myers, you can do so without having to see a modern interpretation of the character. Arriving in select locations on Sept 27, Halloween will screen in theaters in the U.S., U.K., France, Canada, and Australia, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The version shown will be a newly restored and remastered digital print, which was done under the supervision of the film’s original cinematographer, Dean Cundey.
And if you’re someone who is interested in both the original and the reboot, then you’re especially lucky. Since the new Halloween is technically a sequel to the original film, you’ll now have the chance to see both films in theaters in quick succession, which is what original director John Carpenter is hoping you’ll do. “I’m thrilled to have the original make its way back into theaters as we prepare for the release of the sequel,” Carpenter told THR. “Having both back in theaters this fall is remarkable.”
You can see the U.S. theaters where Halloween is screening here, and as for the new sequel, that opens wide on Oct 19.
