An early announcement was posted to the official Halloween Movies Facebook page, announcing the return of John Carpenter's Halloween to theaters across the country this October: 

"This October, John Carpenter's immortal classic, HALLOWEEN, will be making a return to theaters nationwide. This will be the biggest run the film has had since shocking audiences in 1978, and makes for the perfect early kick off to next year's 35th Anniversary celebration.

Screening before the film will be YOU CAN'T KILL THE BOGEYMAN: 35 YEARS OF HALLOWEEN, a new mini documentary written and directed by our own Justin Beahm, focusing on the undeniable impact the film (and series) has had on culture and the genre. The documentary will run at all screenings coast-to-coast."

Halloween played five years ago in theaters as part of a Fathom Events screening that took place for one night in theaters nationwide. For that screening, it was basically a copy of the DVD version on the big screen and we're curious about the presentation details for this release. A full announcement will be posted in the very near future and we'll be sure to update this story when more information is released.
