LOS ANGELES, Sept. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CineLife Entertainment®, the event cinema division of Spotlight Cinema Networks, teams up with Compass International Pictures to bring the seminal 1978 original classic John Carpenter's Halloween back to select theatres across North America beginning September 27th.
In the film, Michael Myers has spent the last 15 years locked away inside a sanitarium under the care of child psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis after brutally murdering his sister when he was 6 years old. On October 30, 1978, Myers escapes and makes his way back home to Haddonfield, Illinois, turning a night of tricks and treats into something much more sinister for the locals, including Laurie Strode, the star-making role for Jamie Lee Curtis.
