The 2020 TCM Big Screen Classics Series from Fathom Events is returning to cinemas this summer.
Put on hold after theaters were forced to close due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the fourth annual series is set to resume on June 28 with The Blues Brothers, the 1980 comedy starring Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi. It will then continue through the second half of the year with a wide range of classics, from Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 horror film Psycho to the 1995 talking-pig dramedy Babe.
“We have truly missed the experience of viewing films on the big screen, the way they were meant to be experienced,” said TCM vice president of enterprises and strategic partnerships Genevieve McGillicuddy in a statement. “We are honored to present these titles back in movie theaters with new precautions in place for fans to safely enjoy this beloved cultural pastime.”
Added Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt, “What better way to bring audiences back to cinemas than with some of the most beloved movies in Hollywood history. This line-up, paired with the extra precautions and practices our theater partners have put in place, is a fantastic way to show movie lovers the way back to cinemas.”
Tickets and a list of participating theaters can be found at the Fathom Events website. Contact your local theater for safety precautions.
