I Can't Believe It's Real!

I had 10 years old when for the first time my mother took me and my 6 years older brother to watch "Close Encounters of the Third kind" (aka CE3K) just released in the theater, February 24th, 1978.

I would not say I enjoyed the movie very much. I found it scary and also i was frustrated to not see clearly the aliens.

But CE3K is like a good wine. It aged very well and it became one of my favorite Sci-fi movie.

Once I started this hobby of visiting movie filming locations, CE3K was in my top list.

May 16, 2010 : I started the filming of "On the Set of Close Encounters of the Third Kind" at Devils Towers, Wyoming.
