We can’t believe it’s been 25 years since the release of the award-winning film Titanic. To mark the occasion, a remastered version of the film will be shown in cinemas across Australia from Thursday 9 February.
If you cried at the 1997 original then make sure to bring tissues because this remastered version will be more powerful and vivid than ever before. The re-release is in 3D 4K HDR – a vast improvement on the once cutting-edge visuals of the original.
See Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet) as you’ve never seen them before on what will soon be the 111th year since the sinking of the ship, Titanic. It’s a story that never fails to pique interest – the ship that left Southampton with 2,240 passengers on board and never returned.
1,500 people passed away when the Titanic sank and it’s really a tale of human hubris as the ‘unsinkable’ ship left the port with fatal flaws and not enough lifeboats to save those on board. The film itself centres around a romance between two people of different social and economic classes but this very intimate view of two lives really serves to humanise those who died on the ship nearly 111 years ago.
So, get ready to sob from Thursday 9 February as the film Titanic comes to the big screen once again, more vividly than ever. Tickets are not available yet, but in Adelaide you can catch screenings at Event and Wallis cinemas, including the outdoor Moonlight Cinema in Botanic Park!
