My wife and I went to see this in the Dolby Theater for the 20 year anniversary of it’s release. Back in 1999 I was a freshmen in college without many pennies to rub together, so I missed it’s theatrical release and only watched it after downloading it from some file share service, either FTP or Limewire or something of it’s ilk. It was one of my first downloaded movies and both how I got it and it movie itself blew my mind. Seeing it in theaters was a great experience this time around, even if I did just watch it a couple months ago when I bought the 4k disc, which was an upgrade from my blueray set, which in turn was an upgrade from my highbit DVDs.
