For those who love a good show (especially fantastic classic films), there are opportunities to see these as originally intended – on the big screen. Yes, most of these are on DVD and can be seen in the comfort of our own homes. But there is something about being in a movie theater that is an experience worth having. It provides you the opportunity to see these classics on the big screen with great sound, and share the experience with other film buffs. Here are some amazing shows you can see in coming months:
The Metropolitan Opera
Metropolitan Opera: Alright, this isn’t exactly a show. But one of the places where these shows can be seen. It was built in 1966 in New York City on the famed Broadway Avenue, and this historic theater is something worth seeing in person. Fathom Events brings you many performances to your local movie theater straight from the Metropolitan Opera. This gives you the opportunity to see shows that you may never get a chance to see on a regular basis, right in Ventura, California!
Newsies: The Broadway Musical – March 4th
Newsies – The Broadway Musical: Yes, this timeless musical is still playing on Broadway. The story of paperboys who go on strike in New York City has been playing since 1992, and it never seems to get old! It is one show that theater-goers will always enjoy. Don’t miss this one-day event. It’s coming to a movie theater near you, and it saves you the costly trip to Broadway!
The Graduate – April 23rd & 26th
The Graduate: Not only did this 1967 film put Dustin Hoffman on the map as a film actor, but it also gave Anne Bancroft a notorious leg scene that has gone down in film Noir. It features stand out music by Simon and Garfunkel as well. All of this has made The Graduate a movie that has stood the test of time.
Smokey and the Bandit – May 21st & 24th
Smokey and The Bandit: Looking for some action and fun at the movies? Look no further. This 1977 film stars Burt Reynolds and Jerry Reed as truckers, along with Jackie Gleason as a sheriff out to get them.
The Godfather – June 4th & June 7th
The Godfather: Considered one of the best films ever made, this film stars Marlon Brando and Al Pacino. It’s the story of the mob family known as the Calderone’s, and spans generations. The Godfather also spawned two sequels that continued the story. Watch this film on the Big Screen and see it as it was meant to be seen!
Some Like it Hot – June 11th & 14th
Some Like It Hot: A funny screwball romantic comedy. When two musicians find themselves in trouble with the mob, they disguise themselves as women to join an all-female band to flee the scene. However, problems arise when one of them falls for one of the girls. The 1959 film stars Tony Curtis, Marilyn Monroe, and Jack Lemmon.
