‘Deep Throat’ Returns to Theaters with a 4K Golden Anniversary Restoration – Interview

GameStop, Inc.

Deep Throat‘ the 1972 adult film that took industry mainstream is receiving a Golden Anniversary 4K restoration and limited theatrical rerelease this summer.

Linda Lovelace and Harry Reems star in ‘Deep Throat’.

The 1970s were definitely interesting times. There was a war in Vietnam, a sexual revolution, Roe v Wade was a landmark case and a new wave of filmmakers had taken the industry by storm coming fresh out of the universities instead of being trained by the studies.

Part of that sexual revolution of the era was the adult film industry going mainstream and that is thanks to a movie by Gerard Damiano Sr. entitled ‘Deep Throat‘.

I had always assumed the movie was named after the Richard Nixon informant nickname, but it turns out as, Gerard Damiano Jr. corrected me in the interview, it was the other way around. He even mentions that former first lady, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis stood in line with the crowd in New York City to be apart of all the buzz.

Now, as we hit the 50th Anniversary celebration of the landmark film in the fight for freedom of speech, ‘Deep Throat‘ receives a 4K Restoration for the limited theatrical rerelease.

I spoke with Gerard Damiano Jr. (Documentarian), Christal Damiano, and Robin Leonardi (filmmaker & daughter of acclaimed First Amendment Rights activist)

The global event cinema experience celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the film (with 4k restoration) with in-person filmmaker Q&A’s! Cinema locations to still be announced from around the globe include the following cities: Berlin, Bologna, Seattle, Los Angeles, Kreuzberg, Miami, Chicago, Montreal, Amsterdam, Rome, London, Tokyo, Paris, Pittsburgh, and many more.
