Couples have maintained a long-standing love affair with movie date nights. Throughout 2018, Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will amp up flick fun with the TCM Big Screen Classics series. This yearlong run brings six decades of Hollywood hits back to movie theaters nationwide! It’s actually the third consecutive year of TCM Big Screen Classics… How did we miss this date night opportunity before?!?
The 2018 TCM Big Screen Classics series presents 13 films spanning the 1930s to the 1990s. Each will be accompanied by specially-produced commentaries from TCM hosts, like Tiffany Vazquez and Ben Mankiewicz, and other movie buffs. Some of the best films will return to the big screen, so prepare for big-time date night fun. Come on… get out of your Netflix rut and feast on butter-soaked popcorn, chewy candy morsels and oversized recliner theater seats. Purchase tickets online or at participating theater box offices.
Let the stars align for a perfect date night with Hollywood’s biggest stars! The line-up features Bing Crosby, James Dean, Tom Hanks, Katharine Hepburn, James Stewart, John Travolta, Gene Wilder, Bruce Willis and many more.
The 2018 TCM Big Screen Classics series includes:
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre | January 2018
This movie, celebrating its 70th anniversary, is about three down and out Americans following a rumor of gold ore to the Sierra Madre Mountains. I admit that I haven’t seen this before, so perhaps I should find out what all the fuss is about over Academy Award winners Humphrey Bogart and Walter Huston.
The Philadelphia Story | February 2018
On the eve of Tracy’s (played by beauty Katharine Hepburn) wedding, her blue-blood ex-husband returns. Gulp!
Vertigo | March 2018
Alfred Hitchcock! Need we say more? Catch the 60th anniversary of this dreamlike thriller.
Grease | April 2018
Awww, one of the best bad-boy meets good-girl rom-coms ever! Go ahead… get in tune on date night with the 40th anniversary of this musical.
Sunset Boulevard | May 2018
The opening sequence reveals a body floating in a decayed mansion’s swimming pool. Don’t you want to know what happens? Yup…
