Kate Winslet may have recently engaged in a bit of revisionist film history, but fans of Titanic can catch the classic movie on the big screen this week. In celebration of the film's 20th anniversary, Paramount Pictures, AMC Theatres, and Dolby Laboratories are rereleasing it for one week only, beginning December 1.
The movie will be playing in a little over a hundred locations, 20 of which will feature a special 3D version. According to James Cameron, who won the Best Director Oscar for Titanic in 1998, the opportunity to see the film in 3D is a must for fans: "The image leaps off the screen as bright and vibrant as life itself. This is the way all movies should be seen, and without a doubt, Titanic has never looked better.”
Since Titanic sailed into theaters two decades ago, the film (which won 11 Academy Awards) has remained a fan favorite, still inspiring pop culture today (see the recent Titanique, a musical parody). At the time of its original theatrical release, it went on to become the highest-grossing movie of all time, until Cameron's Avatar debuted in 2009. In 2016, Leonardo DiCaprio, who starred as Jack Dawson, recalled his surprise at the movie's enduring legacy: "Titanic was very much an experiment for Kate Winslet and I. We’d done all of these independent movies. I loved her as an actress, and she said, 'Let’s do this together. We can do this.' We did it, and it became something that we could’ve never foreseen."
Participating theaters for this special rerelease are listed on AMC's website. Get your tickets soon to relive the drama, the passion, and of course, the music.
