Remember all those oldies-but-goodies your parents made you watch growing up? Well, they’re back in a big way with the FantasticRealm Film Series.
The series is screening 15 fantasy and sci-fi movies from back in the day at The Carolina Theatre of Durham from Mar. 16 to 18.
FantasticRealm, part of the the theater’s Retro Film Series, will focus on family-friendly favorites the whole weekend.
Jim Carl, director of film programming at the Carolina Theatre, said the stars of the show are the five films being shown in rare 35mm 3-D. Among the five: "Jaws" in 3-D. This type of 3-D uses the original technology from the '80s to present the films exactly how they looked when they first premiered.
“Except for one or two screenings in the U.S., none of the films have been screened in 3-D since they were released almost 40 years ago,” Carl said. “It’s going to feel like you’re sitting in a theater in 1983.”
