“Titanic” comes back to the big screen in Real 3D and IMAX 3D on April 6th for the 100th year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic back in 1912.

It has been 15 years since the movie was released to theaters in 1997 and has been entertaining audiences ever since. “Titanic” will always be considered a classic of its time. Director James Cameron will always be known for this film because of how much dedication he put in to it. His dedication was able to give audiences the actual feeling of what it was like seeing a ship that affected the lives of thousands who lost their lives on that night.

With having this anniversary release, people who were too young to see this movie back when it first came out will be able to say that they finally saw “Titanic” in the theater. Probably almost everyone has seen this movie, but having the theatre experience is so much more memorable.

The story line is what captivates the audience. Leonard DiCaprio (Jack Dawson) and Kate Winslet (Rose DeWitt Bukater) perform two characters that have two completely different social backgrounds that meet during their voyage on the Titanic and fall in love. DiCaprio and Winslet’s performance was so powerful that they were able to express the true meaning of love. One of the great ways they expressed this was having the famous line “I’ll never let go” said to show that no matter what happens and no matter how hopeless things may seem, love will never break apart. They will always be known for their roles in “Titanic.”

Unfortunately, not all the actors are still alive for this theatre premiere. Since “Titanic” has been released, one of the main actresses, Gloria Stuart (Old Rose) has recently passed away in 2010. Stuart was nominated for her supporting role performance back in the Oscars in 1998. When she passed away, her age was 100, which happens to be the same exact age of her character in “Titanic.”

Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, Kathy Bates, Frances Fisher, Gloria Stuart, Bill Paxton, Bernard Hill, David Warner, and Victor Garber will all be making their way to the big screen again—keep on the look out for when the tickets go on sale because this event might sell out. Don’t miss the experience that will always be remembered.
