Remember this: Memento returning to theaters with new footage

Feb. 10, 2011by: Mike Sampson

I still remember in 2001 when I was a young, cub reporter for JoBlo.com and having to drive to the local art house theater in Montclair, NJ to finally get a look at Christopher Nolan's MEMENTO. I had been reading about since the Sundance Film Festival earlier that year and I couldn't wait to see it in theaters. I didn't review the film for the site but JoBlo's 10/10 review pretty much says it all.

I never saw MEMENTO in a theater again, despite my wish to see it again almost instantly after the end credits rolled. That could change as MEMENTO is hitting theaters again next week to celebrate its 10th anniversary. The film will screen, along with a taped Q&A between Nolan and Guillermo del Toro, on February 17. Unfortunately it's not playing wide but only in these 11 select cinemas across the US and Canada.

- New York (City Cinemas / City Cinemas East)
- Atlanta, GA (Studio Movie Grill)
- Alpharetta, GA (Holcomb Bridge 9)
- Boston, MA (Legacy Place 15)
- Dallas, TX (Studio Movie Grill 9)
- Houston, TX (Studio Movie Grill City Center 8)
- Los Angeles, CA (Rave The Bridge 19)
- San Diego, CA (UltraStar Mission Valley 7)
- Washington, DC (Rave Fairfax Corner)
- Toronto, ON (Cineplex Varsity 12)
- Vancouver, BC (Cineplex Scotiabank)

For those who can't make the in-theater screening, remember that MEMENTO hits Blu-ray on February 22nd and includes a brand new featurette with Nolan discussing the legacy of the film and more.

MEMENTO

Memento was my favourite film for over five years until I saw The Dark Knight. The first time I saw Memento, it left me a huge aspiration as to what a director can really do, with not just directing a movie but handling a script, the actors, the writing, screenplay, the editing and the actors.

Memento stays in my Top 3 of all time and I would love to watch it in cinema, which I never had a chance to before. Unfortunately the limited release isnt happening in UK.
I really hope they do some

I really hope they do some sort of Nolan festival prior to the release of TDKR. It will be awesome to see Memento, Prestige, BB, TDK, Inception in cinemas again.

Memento is IMO the only great movie Nolan has ever made. Every film since has been extremely overrated.
But with that said Memento is truely a great film, i hope this gives fans and people who have never seen it a chance to on the big screen.

I love the movie but this tour sucks. Two stops in Georgia but nothing in the midwest? I live in Kansas City but would happily drive a couple of hours somewhere else to see this. And it's not like this kind of stuff doesn't do well in the Bible Belt...every time we do get something geeky out here (however rare), it sells out.

I would still say this is Nolan's best. With Inception coming out this past year and taking a look back at Memento, you realize just how original and unique Nolan is. While Cameron toys around with technology to gather an audience, Nolan is altering the way stories are told to bring them in.

Question

Hey does anyone know if this Blu-ray of Memento has the option to watch the film chronologically, like the special edition DVD does? Because I'm not getting rid of that feature, it proved how unique and amazing this film was. What other movie could be watched forwards and backwards, and still be completely watchable?

Shit man, I hear ya. I live in the San Francisco bay area (massive city overall), and they're still not showing it in this area. Who the fuck would want to drive to LA for anything! (besides Disneyland)

It'd be cool to see this in theaters.

Great movie. Nolan's best non Batman movie.

Seeing it in a theater is gonna be awesome. Can't wait for the 10th anniversary blu-ray either. A definite all-timer.

My mom and I drove two hours to the only theater in Maine that played it to watch on Mother's Day. We still talk about it quite frequently. Not in my top ten but it's damn close.

LMAO I love the thumbs up thumbs down system... people just unleash their anger hahaha

But I agree. While I did really enjoy it, it's definitely not as great as most people say. Same thing goes for TDK, Inception and well... actually most of Nolan's work. The dude's a great director, but not everyone of his movies is a masterpiece, as everyone thinks.

Thank you for your support! @WP that's pretty much exactly how I see it too. But the Nolan-fans are even worse than the twilight-fans, so what can you do? LOL

I'm a big Nolan fan and think his subsequent films have just been really good, but Memento, however, IS a masterpiece.
