Psycho and Grease among fan-favorites heading back to theaters
Jaws isn’t the only classic movie that is returning to movie theaters this year for a special limited engagement. Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies are partnering with several major studios to bring some of the most beloved movies of the last century into nearly 500 theaters for a special showcase, including screenings of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho and a sing-along version of the 1978 blockbuster musical, Grease.
Also included in the special TCM Presents series, which runs monthly through December, are Double Indemnity, the classic 1931 Dracula starring Bela Lugosi (and Spanish Dracula, the 1931 Spanish language version that was filmed on the same Dracula sets at night), Roman Holiday, and Miracle on 34th Street. Each title will be digitally broadcast twice a day, for two days, with a special introduction from TCM host Robert Osborne or Ben Mankiewicz.
“The series allows us to bring fans another opportunity to engage with classic movies on the big screen from a variety of studios and eras in a way that aligns with our network’s mission to show films the way they were meant to be seen,” said Jennifer Dorian, general manager of TCM.
Tickets can be purchased at Fathom Events’ website.
