‘Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan’ Returning To Theaters For 35th Anniversary
Empress Eve   |  

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the release of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, undoubtedly the best Star Trek movie ever (and one of my favorite movies of all time)! For the occasion, the film will get a limited theatrical release this September, courtesy of Fathom Events and Paramount Pictures.

The digitally remastered Director’s Cut of the film will get a two-day-only theatrical run nationwide — Sunday, September 10 and Wednesday, September 13, at 2pm and 7pm local time each day. A new in-depth interview with star William Shatner (who reprised his iconic role as James T. Kirk in the film) will be played before each showing.

Dr. Zaius   |  

Fathom Events North by Northwest 03

Starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason, Jessie Royce Landis, Leo G. Carroll, Martin Landau
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM)
Runtime: 136 minutes
Release date: July 28th, 1959

The Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, is one the greatest filmmakers of all time. One of his classics is the 1959 mystery thriller North By Northwest starring Cary Grant, James Mason, and Oscar winner Eva Marie Saint. The film ranked 55th on the American Film Institute’s 100 years, 100 movies list as well 4th in their list of 100 Thrilling American Films. Debuting in theaters a year after Hitchcock’s classic Vertigo, and a year before he changed the game of horror with Psycho, North By Northwest in unique in the sense, the three years before James Bond burst onto the scene in Dr. No, North By Northwest created the template for the famed spy-hero. Now, thanks to Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events, North By Northwest is in theaters for one more day as part of TCM’s Big Screen Classics series.

Retro Movie Review: ‘Dirty Dancing’ (1987) – Fathom Events
Olympus Athens   |  

Dirty Dancing Fathom Events 05

Dirty Dancing
Available now on Blu-ray
Written by Eleanor Bergstein
Directed by Emile Ardolino
Starring Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Cynthia Rhodes, Jerry Orbach, Kelly Bishop
Vestron Films
Rated PG-13 | 100 minutes
Release date: August 21st, 1987
Fathom Events screenings: January 29th & February 1st, 2017

Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) thought it would be a regular summer in the Catskills with her family. A daddy’s girl, she and her mom, dad, and sister Lisa (Jerry Orbach, Kelly Bishop, Jane Brucker) went to Kellerman’s resort, that catered to the rich, complete with Ivy-League waiters. Kellerman’s also had the dance people, who gave lessons and entertained the guests. Baby, who wanted to be in the Peace Corps and always believed the best, was floored by the “dirty dancing,” and dazzled by Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), lead dancer. After an impromptu dance lesson, Baby inadvertently ended up trying to help the other lead dancer Penny (Cynthia Rhodes), who got knocked up by one of the waiters, Robbie (Max Cantor). Stepping into her mambo shoes, Johnny trained Baby to dance, and they fell in love. No summer romance would sizzle unless it was forbidden, and theirs was no different. This was the story of Dirty Dancing, which propelled a cast of virtual unknowns into instant fame.

Retro Movie Review: ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ (1952) – Fathom Events

Singin' in the Rain Gene Kelly Debbie Reynolds fathom events

Singin’ in the Rain is universally renowned as one of the greatest musicals of all time. In 2007, the American Film Institute ranked it as the fifth greatest film ever made. 2017 marks the 65th anniversary of the film’s release in 1952 and to commemorate the event, Fathom Events and TCM’s Big Screen Classic series have brought it back to theaters for two days only. Not only do audiences get to take in a pure classic, but they also get to pay a final respect to the late great Debbie Reynolds, whose career was launched thanks to the film. I have attended and reviewed many of the screenings from Fathom and TCM and this one had the largest crowd by far. The show was sold out; my family and I sat in the very top row, and the 7:00pm show was sold out by 1:30 in the afternoon.

What’s In Store For Fathom Events In 2017 – ‘The Godfather,’ ‘Casablanca,’ & More

Fathom Events TCM Classics 2017

If you are bored by the constant stream of sequels and superhero movies, and yearn to see the classics of yesteryear, Fathom Events is there for you. Thanks to the good people at Fathom, 2016 was a great year at the movies for me and my family. I was able to recreate a monumental moment of my childhood, that of my dad taking a 13-year old me to see From Dusk Till Dawn, by taking my 12-year old son Brandon to see the 20th Anniversary showing. We also took in the 20th anniversary of Space Jam, as well as other classics like Planet of the Apes. My wife and I used Fathom Events for date nights, catching several classics throughout the year, like the 40th Anniversary of Taxi Driver and a near Halloween showing of Kubrick’s The Shining.

So what’s on this year’s schedule?

Fathom Events: The 20th Anniversary Of ‘Space Jam’
Dr. Zaius   |  

Space Jam Header

Twenty years ago, the world beheld the greatest onscreen duo of all time. Not Bogey & Bacall, Abbot & Costello, or even Batman & Robin. No, I’m talking about Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny. Sunday evening, I took my son to the Fathom Events screening of the 20th Anniversary of Space Jam. The film debuted twenty years ago this week when I was a spry 14 years old. My then 4-year old sister LOVED this movie and nearly wore out the VHS tape we had… yes, we owned the VHS.

Retro Movie Review: From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) – Fathom Events

From Dusk Till Dawn Header

From Dusk Till Dawn
Available now on Blu-ray
Written by Quentin Tarantino & Robert Kurtzman
Directed by Robert Rodriguez
Starring George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino, Juliette Lewis, Harvey Keitel, Cheech Marin, Ernest Liu, Salma Hayek
Miramax
Rated R | 108 minutes
Release date: January 19th, 1996
Fathom Events screening: November 6, 2016

“Psychos do not explode when sunlight hits them, I don’t give a f*ck how crazy they are!”

Twenty years ago, my father took a young 13-year old to the movie theater to see From Dusk Till Dawn. The movie was written by Quentin Tarantino who I had recently dubbed my idol after watching Pulp Fiction for the first time, and directed by Robert Rodriguez who did Desperado, another of my early favorites. It has since become something of a legend to us, and the phrase “don’t tell Mom” is part of the family vernacular. So when Fathom Events and Miramax put From Dusk Till Dawn back in the theaters, I knew I had to carry on family tradition and take my 12-year-old son to it. Sure, From Dusk Till Dawn is very rated-R. But this was a rite of passage.
