    Hello all. Just thought I'd throw out a fun topic: what movies would you love to see get re-released theatrically? I'd pick the following:

    1. Ben-Hur

    2. Star Wars

    3. Lawrence of Arabia

    4. Citizen Kane

    5. Psycho

    6. Braveheart

    7. Gone with the Wind

    8. The Godfather

    9. Schindler's List

    10. Raiders of the Lost Ark

    11. Goldfinger

    12. Monty Python and the Holy Grail

    13. Casablanca

    14. Jurassic Park

    I picked 14 because that is how many screens my theater has at work. Let's hear from everyone else!

    Im sure this will end up in the polls.
    But apart from those mentioned the number one on my list is Pulp Fiction, it was R18+ here and I wasn't able to get in.

    The key to getting more classic films re-released theatrically is not to be selective but to see ALL of them. Studios always look at how other films have done and whether it is worth it to clean up and re-release a classic film.
    Whenever an older film is re-released, I make it a point to see them especially in the annual film festival held locally.
