Cineplex’s Great Digital Film Festival Preview

Starting Feb 1, 2013 select Cineplex theaters across Canada will participate in the fourth annual ‘Great Digital Film Festival’. The festival runs from Feb 1 through Feb7 and is dedicated to bringing classic films back to the big screen, and often in digital format for the first time. This year the festival is also serving as the nationwide debut for last year’s Toronto After Dark Film Festival Favorite Cockneys vs Zombies.

All films are only $6 per screening with discount pricing for purchasing multiple tickets with extra Scene points for members of Cineplex’s Scene loyalty program. In the GTA the theaters participating will be the Scotiabank Theaters downtown and the Cineplex Cinemas Mississauga (formerly the Coliseum). The fest will also play in other theaters across Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The list of participating theaters can be found here.

The list of films is an impressive collection of true classics. The films included are The Matrix, Jaws, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, An American Werewolf in London, The Fifth Element, the aforementioned Cockneys vs Zombies, and Gremlins. Also, for the first time ever in Cineplex Theaters is the Japanese classic action film Battle Royale. The fest also features the classic“Oldboy from the director of the upcoming Stoker: Park Chan-wook. We have a couple of director double features with Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas and Casino along with Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. The festival also features, on Feb 2, an all-day Indiana Jones marathon with all four Indiana Jones films (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) playing back-to-back.

All of these films are very worthy of inclusion and can easily be recommended but in case you can’t see them all, which is very likely the case for 99% of the population, catching Battle Royale on the big screen is an absolute must. Other titles that should not be missed are Oldboy, A Clockwork Orange, Jaws, Gremlins, Goodfellas, Cockneys vs Zombies and Pulp Fiction.
