'Home Alone' returning to theaters for 25th anniversary
Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal. Home Alone is coming back to theaters.
Fathom Events and 20th Century Fox have announced that they will celebrate the holiday classic’s 25th anniversary by screening Home Alone for two nights only in select theaters nationwide.
Written by John Hughes and directed by Chris Columbus, Home Alone spent 12 weeks at the top of the box office and introduced the world to Macaulay Culkin as Kevin, the 8-year-old booby trap maestro who, after being left behind by his family, has to defend his home against two blundering burglars (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern). Not only was it the No. 1 movie of 1990, earning more than $285.7 million, but to date, it’s still the highest grossing live-action comedy of all time in the U.S.
The special presentation, airing Nov. 8 and Nov. 11, will also feature an exclusive introduction. For tickets and show times, head to Fathom Events.
