Fathom Events and the TCM Big Screen Classics Series introduce a new generation to these legendary films.

As movie theaters slowly begin to reopen, consider watching some of Hollywood’s greatest hits returning to the big screen this year. Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies (TCM) have handpicked 12 classic films to show in theaters two days out of the month and twice each day (typically on Sundays and Wednesdays).  You’ll get to watch these films in the original aspect ratio, but the bonus content includes commentary before and after the film by TCM hosts.  

Now, without further ado, here are the 12 throwback films screening in theaters from January through December 2021: 
  • January: "The Maltese Falcon" (80th anniversary), Sunday, Jan. 24 and Wednesday, Jan. 27 
  • February: "Boyz n the Hood" (30th anniversary), Sunday, Feb. 28 and Wednesday, March 3

“This year has shown us that watching movies on the big screen is not an experience to take for granted, and 2021’s lineup of films has something for every movie lover. We are prouder than ever to continue this partnership with Fathom Events to bring the TCM Big Screen Classics series to audiences around the country.” Genevieve McGillicuddy, vice president of enterprises and strategic partnerships, TCM.
