The time has come. In celebration of its 25th anniversary, a remastered version of James Cameron’s multi-Academy Award-winning ‘Titanic’ has been re-released to theatres for an exclusive limited engagement. With a cast headed by Oscar winners Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, the film is an epic, action-packed romance set against the ill-fated maiden voyage of the “unsinkable” Titanic, at the time, the largest moving object ever built.
