There are plenty of old films I'd happily pay $10 to see again on the big screen and in VIP seats.

I saw Reservoir Dogs for the first time the other day. It was interesting feeling the connections of tone between the 2 movies.

Every time I watch Pulp Fiction, its greatness truly stands out above anything I've seen in a theater in a decade or more.

Unfortunately this type of well-written, intelligent film doesn't sell with subtitles in Cambodia, so we're left with CGI superheroes pummeling other CGI supervillains while chewing on stale, overpriced popcorn covered in recycled motor oil.

I love to watch these kind of good movies again in Theater than new movies.
How can I monitor for new options like this from Cineplex website?

Thanks OP for this deal.

No, it's the global marketplace, where the less dialogue the better, and the more mindless the CGI action, the more it plays in the sticks. People hate a screen filled with subtitles and dubbing is both expensive and time-consuming.

This is hardly news, and it's the main reason why we don't see big rom-coms, or comedies in general, very much, as they do NOT travel (too much dialogue and these usually have no action). Mindless superhero smash-fests fill the seats in population overload regions like Asia and India because the dialogue is mostly action tropes like "get them", "hurry up" and "let's go". And since there is no real character development and only a paper-thin plot, you can glean the entire movie with the voices off.

Most of the largest grossing films in China and India are comedies and drama films. Some comedy films even outsold the Avengers movies domestically. Your description fits North America more.
