Every kid has always wanted to be BIG … and as Tom Hanks reminded us, once you become a grown-up, every adult longs to return to childhood. I am so excited to share the BIG will be returning to theaters on July 15 & 18 to celebrate its 30th Anniversary.
I was ten when Big came out in theaters, and instantly fell in love with this classic. I am so excited to take my own kids to see this in theaters over the weekend. I can still quote every line in this movie, I was that in love with it.
BIG Returns To Theaters
Thirty years ago this summer, 12-year-old Josh Baskin uttered a secret wish to a carnival fortune-teller machine and made movie history as he grew up overnight, turning director Penny Marshall’s Big into a box-office smash and one of the defining films of the 1980s.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Big, Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and Twentieth Century Fox are bringing its magic back to movie theaters throughout the U.S. as part of the yearlong TCM Big Screen Classics series. This special presentation will also include pre- and post-film commentary by TCM Primetime host Ben Mankiewicz.
Big will play in more than 700 U.S. movie theaters on Sunday, July 15, and Wednesday, July 18, at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. each day (local time). Tickets can be purchased online at www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.
Filled with the “zip and exuberance of a classic romantic comedy” (The Washington Post), Big is “funny, warm, sophisticated and, above all, imaginative from start to finish” (Los Angeles Times). Tom Hanks stars as the 30-year-old Josh, whose desire to leave childhood behind and become a grown-up comes with consequences he never imagined, leading to an adventure that takes him into Manhattan, where he becomes an executive at a toy company.
“Big is the film that really cemented Tom Hanks’ place as a superstar, and it’s easy to see why – it’s one of the sweetest and most charming comedies ever made, and it’s a real pleasure to bring such a beloved film back to movie theaters as a summertime treat thanks to our partnership with Turner Classic Movies,” said Tom Lucas, Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations.
I hope you are as excited to see Big in theaters as I am!
