The Graduate returning to theaters for 50th anniversary
Dustin Hoffman's breakthrough hit is heading back to theaters later this month
The Graduate is drifting back to the big screen.
The acclaimed dramedy starring Dustin Hoffman as an aimless college grad who is seduced by an older woman (Anne Bancroft) and then falls in love with her daughter (Katharine Ross) is returning to theaters this month in celebration of its 50th anniversary.
Presented by Rialto Pictures, Studiocanal, and Fathom Events, The Graduate will screen in more than 700 venues nationwide on Sunday, April 23, and Wednesday, April 26, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. local time. The screenings will also feature specially produced commentary from Turner Classic Movies host Ben Mankiewicz.
Originally released in 1967, The Graduate garnered a directing Oscar for Mike Nichols (one of the film’s seven nominations), made Hoffman a star with his performance as Benjamin Braddock, and captured the angst of a generation of baby boomers. Five decades later, it remains essential viewing.
Tickets are available via the Fathom website.
