Lots of Special November Theatrical Showings

November is shaping up to be a good month for movie viewing.

Mockingjay Double

On the 18th, Regal and other chains are showing a Mockingjay double feature. The first feature begins at 4:30. For some reason, my regal (Biltmore Grande) has this listed at a whopping $26.75 as though it were a full marathon and not a double feature. The Carmike in Asheville is playing this for a much more reasonable $15.

Roman Holiday

On the 29th and again on December 2nd (both at 2 and 7), Turner Classic Movies (via Fathom Events) is bringing Roman Holiday back to theaters. This 1953 movie showcases the talents of Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.

A bored and sheltered princess escapes her guardians and falls in love with an American newsman in Rome.”

Home Alone

Fathom Events and Fox are bringing Home Alone to theaters the 8th and the 11th at 4:30 and 7:30 (except Cinemark theaters where the early showing is 2 instead of 4:30).

Classics on the Big Screen – Jaws, Dracula, Double Indemnity

Apparently TCM’s big screen re-release of Gone with the Wind was a big success. I love seeing classic movies on the big screen. Turner Classic Movies is bringing a slew of classic movies to local theaters at the rate of one a month. Tickets and locations are available through Fathom Events.



With Jurassic World currently dominating the screen, it seems fitting that the first one brought back is the original Jaws. All of the films will be shown at 2 and 7 p.m. on Sundays and Wednesdays. Jaws will be shown on 6/21 and 6/24. Ticket price is a bit steep at $15 but don’t blame your theater. That is just Fathom’s low-end pricing (if you’ve been to one of their operas, you know what I mean). I am looking forward to finally seeing this on the big screen.

Double Indemnity

7/19 & 7/22 – Double Indemnity (presumably chosen as representative of the channel’s Summer of Darkness and their wonderful FREE online course on Film Noir.

8/16 & 8/19 – Grease

9/20 & 9/23 – Psycho (Hitchcock)


10/25 & 10/28 – Dracula double feature (1931) – The Lugosi version AND the Spanish version that was filmed on the same sets

11/29 & 12/2 – Roman Holiday

12/20 & 12/23 – Miracle on 34th Street
