I was so excited to hear this news, but I live in Scotland and the WB festival is not reaching that far north  :'(

I hope you lucky punks in the rest of the UK enjoy it though - let us all know how good the restoration is.

Thanks for the news MWB, I've booked and am really looking forward to it as never seen Dirty Harry on the big screen before!

Just to add, you can also get two for one on the ticket price by registering

Blairgowrie in Perthshire, Hamilton is a bit too far.

Most of my family are in Edinburgh so I was hoping it would be on there and I could combine family visit with a cinema trip.

Thanks for the Hamilton tip anyway.

Hope you enjoy DH in the cinema mate.  :)

I'll console myself remembering that I saw it in Cinema in the 70s as double bill with the Beguiled.

The BBFC have re-classified it to a 15 certificate instead of the usual 18 certificate. No cuts have been made, but in todays times the violence now sits well
within the 15 rating.

I hope to be going, although I am not happy with Warner Bros policy for not creating any more new prints of archive titles.  >:(

Not that we would get them here in the UK so digital (ugh!  :P) projection will have to do. Glad for younger members who are at least seeing it in a cinema.

I am pleased that original Technicolor 35mm prints are out there and being preserved.  ;)

Will be going on Monday.

Was told yesterday that these screenings are not doing very well. I hope that there will be more sales on the day.

It will be interesting to see how good the image is.

Back from seeing it earlier, great stuff.  My, that was a big gun.

Can't believe I've never noticed Clint's shameless plug for 'Play Misty' on the cinema billboard in the bank shootout scene.  ::) 

Benefits of a big screen I suppose.

Just come back from the Dirty Harry screening at Newcastle-under-Lyme. In a word - Brilliant!
There were about 40 - 50 people in the cinema - which isn't bad for a Monday night at 6:30pm.
A good mix of young and older people who all seemed to enjoy the film.
The picture quality was pretty good - but the experience of seeing at at the cinema was unmissable.

Let's hope they release some more!

Just come back as well from the Thurrock Vue. It was fantastic, well worth £5. There was only about ten people in the cinema. I was the youngest by about twenty five years.

I'd love to see it again in the cinema. I'm very tempted to watch 'Dial M For Murder' next Monday.

Hey, Masterchief! Nice seeing you around here! :)

I can imagine you would be one of the younger ones in a theater for a Dirty Harry screening. I'd enjoy seeing it on the big screen (and I would probably go see Dial M For Murder too).

If you've only seen the film on TV in the past and not in widescreen, the cinema sign is cropped off and not visible.

My wife and I went to see the showing at Thurrock too so at least you know there were two other young 'uns amongst those 10 people!  It was fantastic to finally see Clint's best Dirty Harry film on the big screen, it definately adds a lot to the experience and the picture quality and sound were exceptional....now if only a local cinema could do a Clint season I'd be in heaven!

I was rather impressed that it had the Warner Bros - Kinney logo shield at the start of the film.  Just the way the way it should have been.

On the whole.........SUPERB.

Even the missus enjoyed it!!

It was my first visit to a VUE cinema and I have to say the seats were first class, very comfortable with plenty of leg room.
