Close Encounters of the Third Kind



Play Movie


Rating: PG
Release Date: 24/03/1978
Director: Steven Spielberg

Spielberg's first foray into the world of extraterrestrials, Close Encounters is not only a wonderful film, but one that has hardly aged at all despite it's heavy use of special effects. That trademark Spielberg sense of wonder makes this a marvelous big-screen experience for both young and not-so-young.
