Over the past few years, I've been making it a habit to check out at least one or two theatrical re-releases of classic films, usually sponsored by Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies, along with participating Cinemark theaters... in the recent past, I finally got to see the likes of JAWS, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY and SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE the way they were meant to be seen.

So now their 2019 schedule is up, and for anyone interested (at least in the States), you might want to check these out in the next 12 months (the ones in bold are either my faves, or ones I might take my kids to see):

Jan: THE WIZARD OF OZ
Feb:  MY FAIR LADY
Mar:  TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
Apr:  BEN-HUR
May:  TRUE GRIT and STEEL MAGNOLIAS
June:  FIELD OF DREAMS
July:  GLORY
Aug:  HELLO, DOLLY!
Sept:  LAWRENCE OF ARABIA and THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION
Oct:  ALIEN  (hell yeah!!!)
Nov:  THE GODFATHER, PART II
Dec:  WHEN HARRY MET SALLY...

Nothing against the ones not highlighted in bold, but to me, they don't exactly scream-out to be seen outside the home (most seem--I don't know--too intimate, maybe?).

Really excited about the ALIEN 40th Anniversary release... my final holy grail of '70s film favorites that I missed in their initial run (in ALIEN's case, I was only 6 at the time!).  Here's the link for more info:


Anything of interest for anyone else?

Last time I saw a revival of Field of Dreams, every 30-50yr old man in the theater (yeah, including me) was using every trick to keep from out and out weeping.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and TRUE GRIT for me - those two would be amazing to see in a theater since I have never seen them on the big screen.

I saw ALIEN in the theater during the 2003 re-release, and eagerly look forward to doing so again!

I missed ALIEN in its initial theatrical run, but I feel like I've seen it in a theater...maybe it was in '03. 

At any rate, I'm down for seeing it next year. 


THE WIZARD OF OZ holds some interest, as well...as I'm certain I've not seen that on the big screen.

--- Actually, untrue. There was a showing of "Dark Side of the Rainbow" at a convention center I attended about 20 years ago. It was a laser show combined with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon synced with a screening of OZ (of course, the album has to be played more than once).  There are coincendal(?) match-ups with the music and imagery. 

But, as for an...unembellished viewing of the film in a theater, no.

FIELD OF DREAMS and GLORY are the only two I would probably go see in the theater. Heidi would probably drag me to WIZARD OF OZ...

THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION would be on my list, but I go out of my way to watch it on cable at least a couple of times a year. Don't see any point in paying to see it in a theater under that circumstance.

(I do like musicals, but MY FAIR LADY and HELLO, DOLLY! aren't even in my top 5.)

I'm not the biggest fan of MY FAIR LADY, but I like it enough that I don't mind taking my daughters to see that one.

HELLO, DOLLY! is one I've never seen, and I've never heard great things about it, either, but my eldest loves older, classic films, musicals of any kind (film or Broadway), and loves Barbra Streisand, so I can make myself sit through that one for her sake... 'cause my wife loathes Streisand, so she sure as heck ain't takin' her to see that one!  :)

GLORY is a great movie that I think has been mostly forgotten.

Sometimes Fathom Events has some re-releases that are not affiliated with TCM... I would totally jump at the chance to see some single or 3-day anniversary releases of NORTH BY NORTHWEST, JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH (1959), ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE, MOONRAKER, THE MUPPET MOVIE, STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, Spielberg's 1941 or THE BLACK HOLE for 2019.

I saw ST- TMP in the theater, three years ago, and was surprised by what a big crowd and how much positive audience response there was. Flawed though it may be, it's definitely best served by a theatrical viewing experience. A movie that was filmed to be a MOVIE, rather than a big-budget TV episode.

I'd be down with seeing it on the big screen again!
