Cineplex Events announced on Thursday, January 5, the return of the 8th annual Flashback Film Fest, set to sweep the country from coast to coast this February.
Films include popular cult and fan favourite films like Fargo, Pulp Fiction and, yes, Groundhog Day, and cross all genres including sci-fi and fantasy.
Formerly known as the Great Digital Festival, Cineplex has decided to rename the festival this year to reflect its popularity and evolvement.
Films will be screened in 24 cities across the country from February 3-9, 2017.
“The great thing about this festival is that audiences will have a chance to relive these movies in the way they were meant to be seen; on a big screen, with an audience,” said author and film critic, Richard Crouse. “The best and most powerful way to see a movie is to fully immerse yourself in the theatre experience, surrounded by people who are enjoying it just as much as you are”.
These are all 17 films you will have a chance to experience this February on the big screen:
Air Force One (1997) *20-year anniversary
Blade Runner – The Final Cut (2007) *10-year anniversary/35-year anniversary of original
Blood Simple (1984)
The Fifth Element (1997) *20-year anniversary
