Once I discovered that Fathom Events was the place I could score tickets to see some classic films on the big screen I always made sure I would check out their site a few times a month. Just a few days ago I took a peak wondering what goodies they had for the new year and to my delight they have some great ones.
TCM is now presenting big screen classic events via Fathom Events to showcase classic films for entire year! They will be screening one classic film every month and it will be shown all across America at selected theaters which you can find when you get on the site. Fathom has cyber calendars so you can look at the dates and find the two days a month it will be showing.
Now I have been lucky to have seen eight classic films on the big screen in the past few years. That was when TCM (Turner Classic Movies) would have these specials one day screenings of these films. Now TCM is going to give us folks here in the states an opportunity to see a different classic film on the big screen every month of this year. I cannot tell you how excited I am!
Here is what you can see on the big screen this year thanks to TCM and Fathom Events:
January 17 & 20: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
February 21 & 24: The Maltese Falcon (75th Anniversary)
March 20 & 23: The Ten Commandments
