I am all in favor of bringing back classics to theaters so they can be seen again as they were meant to, on the big screen.
However, Peter Jackson’s deeply flawed Hobbit trilogy does not qualify as classic. Still we hardly get any fantasy movies. To celebrate the release of The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies extended edition, Fathom Events is bringing the extended versions of all three Hobbit movies to the screen for one night each.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – 10/5 at 7:30
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – 10/7 at 7:30
The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies – 10/13 at 7:30
Because these are Fathom events, be aware that you’ll pay a premium price.
Fathom Events is bringing The Iron Giant back to theaters in a newly remastered version with additional scenes.
The Iron Giant – 9/30 at 7 and 10/4 at 12 noon
Finally, to end the month, TCM and Fathom are bringing us a double dose of Dracula. They will be showing the Bela Lugosi original and the Spanish version that was filmed at the same time on the same sets but with different actors.
Dracula – 10/25 & 10/28 at 2 and 7 p.m.
