Fathom Events and TCM Bring Classic Movies to the Big Screen… Again

When you watch classic movies on television, either via cable or your own DVD or VHS tape, do you wonder what it would have been like to have seen it in the theaters? Were you lucky enough to have seen them in the theater and wish you could relive that experience? Thanks to Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies, you’ll be able to get that movie-going experience for a different classic each month of 2016. In 650 theaters across the country, there will be two screenings on a Sunday and a Wednesday, each month, so you’ll have four chances to see each film.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

This month’s feature is THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, showing at 2 pm and 7 pm on Sunday, March 20th, and Wednesday, March 23rd. Celebrating its 60th anniversary, this biblical epic, one of the top grossing films of all time, has been fully restored and has retained its G-rating, making it a great outing for families. THE TEN COMMANDMENTS was directed by Cecil B. DeMille, widely considered to be one of the world’s best directors and the namesake for the Golden Globes Cecil B. DeMille Award.  THE TEN COMMANDMENTS was DeMille’s final film and film buffs should take advantage of every opportunity to see this classic the way it was intended – on a big screen in a plush theater surrounded by fellow movie fans.
