After this life-changing event, he begins to be plagued by mysterious visions of strange mountain-like shapes. He becomes obsessed with figuring out what they represent, much to the dismay of his wife and family. Meanwhile, strange events are occurring all over the world. Government agents experience a second close encounter and discover physical evidence of extraterrestrial visitors, including a fighter plane lost in World War II and a warship that vanished decades ago that suddenly reappears in unusual locations.

Roy continues to follow his visions into a remote area where he and the agent follow clues and arrive at a location where they experience a close encounter of the third kind, or contact.

With this special nationwide encore, why not experience Close Encounters of the Third Kind the way it was meant to be seen: on the big screen?
