For as long as I live the movie Heat will go down as one of my favorite heist movies of all time. Not only that, but one of my favorite movies, period, of all-time. I personally think it was the best work of his career and I doubt that many Michael Mann fans out there would disagree. Good news for Mann fans around the country. Next month, for one night only, fans will have a chance to see the 1995 classic Heat on the big screen once again. According to Variety
The May 2 screenings, co-presented by Alamo Drafthouse, serve as a nationwide launch for Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s May 9 release of a “Director’s Definitive Edition” Blu-ray and DVD. Additionally, a Q&A with Mann will be live-streamed at each of the screenings from the Regency Village Theater in Los Angeles.
The new restoration was overseen by Mann. It screened at the Toronto Film Festival in 2015 as part of a 20th anniversary celebration, as well as at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences last year. Q&As from both of those events are featured on the new release.
It’s a shame I don’t live in Los Angeles so I could actually ask Mann questions up front.. I might just have to fly there on the 1st of May to catch this thing. Then again, Boston isn’t too far away.
Details on next month’s screenings can be found below.
