July 12, 2012

NCM Fathom Events, the alternative entertainment division of National CineMedia, is collaborating with Turner Classic Movies (TCM) to present a classic film series from Universal Pictures exclusively in select movie theatres nationwide beginning this fall.

Fathom Events and TCM will kick off the ongoing series with four newly restored titles commemorating Universal Pictures' 100th anniversary: The Birds (Sept. 19), a double feature of Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein (Oct. 24) and To Kill a Mockingbird (Nov. 15).

The series will be introduced onscreen by TCM host, film historian and author Robert Osborne. Osborne will take audiences behind the scenes for each of these American classics, with exclusive interviews conducted at this year’s TCM Classic Film Festival.

“Fathom Events has experienced great success in bringing classic anniversary events to movie theatres around the country over the past several years,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive VP of NCM Fathom Events. “This agreement with TCM enables us to offer audiences a chance to experience these four classics on the big screen once again.”

The “TCM Classic Movies Series” will be presented using digital projection systems. Tickets to the series will be available beginning Friday, July 27. Visit www.FathomEvents.com to learn more.

"Through our alliance with Fathom Events, TCM is able to bring classic films to movie theatres across the country, introducing new generations to some of Hollywood's great cinematic masterpieces," said Dennis Adamovich, senior VP of brand and digital activation and general manager of festivals for TCM, TBS and TNT. "This partnership also demonstrates how TCM is able to reach beyond the television screen and connect with our community of movie lovers no matter where they may be."

Fathom Events and TCM presented the classics The Wizard of Oz in 2009, West Side Story in 2011 and Casablanca in March 2012 to theatres across the country and celebrate the 60th anniversary of Singin’ in the Rain in select theatres on July 12.
