Do you have your tickets to see The NeverEnding Story and Labyrinth on the big screen yet? Those aren’t the only awesome movie events you’ve been missing out on.
Did you know that some local movie theaters regularly show classic movie favorites, stage performances filmed live, and other events along with current releases? If you love the moviegoing experience but haven’t been thrilled by what’s recently been churned out by Hollywood, you’ve been missing out big time.
We can thank Fathom Events for these nuggets of cinematic joy. Not only do you get to see them on the big screen, but they’re presented with bonus content to add to the experience. In particular, it’s a great way to introduce your kids to the magic of movies you first saw in the theater as a kid.
Here are my favorite events for the rest of the year! There are plenty more, so be sure to check out the full list.
Many are scheduled to show at Regal Brandywine, Movies 10 in Newport, and/or at the Cinemark at the Christiana Mall, for one or two days only.
If your theater isn’t hosting a particular Fathom Event, or any at all, write them and ASK them to!
