Ten years after its powerful theatrical debut, the classic thriller Memento, released by Exclusive Media Group’s Newmarket Films, celebrates its anniversary with ONE NIGHT ONLY screenings on February 17th, 2011 in 11 select digital cinemas (theatres listed below) across North America via Cinedigm Digital Cinema (NASDAQ: CIDM).
These screenings will feature never-before-seen question and answer footage with award-winning writer and director, Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight), speaking with acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro. The film will be screened from an all-new, director-approved, high definition digital print. Suspenseful and unique, this daring and challenging Academy Award® nominated, movie launched Nolan’s career.
Memento will also be released as a 10th Anniversary Special Edition Blu-ray, available from Lionsgate Home Entertainment on February 22nd. The Blu-ray comes packed with special features including a brand new featurette with the director discussing the legacy of the film, plus the director’s script, audio commentary with Christopher Nolan, the original short story, “Anatomy of a Scene” and more!
The exclusive Q&A footage can be seen ONLY IN THEATRES and features a conversation between Nolan and Del Toro which was recorded during a sold out Memento screening on February 4th, 2011 at The American Cinematheque Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles. Nolan shares his insights and opinions on the impact Memento had on his life and his overall body of work.
Demonstrating one of the many benefits of digital cinema, Cinedigm is holding a DIGITAL MOVIE POSTER contest. Fans will be provided with the art assets to create a unique poster for Memento, with the winners’ art to be included on the big screen during the event on the 17th.
