Universal Studios Celebrates 100 Years with Big Plans

Universal Studios will celebrate its 100th year anniversary this year and has begun to reveal plans on how they will celebrate.

The studio will begin with restoring and reissuing 13 classic films that will be re-packaged into a 100th anniversary collector's series DVD, although it's unclear whether the films will also receive a theatrical run.
 
The 13 films are:
 
Jaws
 
Dracula
 
Dracula Spanish
 
Frankenstein
 
Schindler's List
 
Out of Africa
 
Pillow Talk
 
Bride of Frankenstein
 
The Birds
 
The Sting
 
Buck Privates
 
To Kill a Mockingbird
 
All Quiet on the Western Front
 
The studio will also debut their new logo (see below) in front of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax.
 
 
You can follow along with the official Universal Centennial website as well as a newly created Tumblr account. Fans of Universal classics on Facebook will also find exclusive and special opportunities across their favorite fan pages throughout the year while followers of @UniversalPics on Twitter can find the activities using the hashtag #Universal100. And if that wasn't enough social media exposure for you, Foursquare users who check in at Universal locations such as the studio and theme parks will be able to unlock special behind-the-scenes tips and content.
 
Universal is the parent company of Fandango.
