“TCM is thrilled to continue our long-standing relationship with Fathom Events along with our studio partners to bring consumers the TCM Presents series,” said Jennifer Dorian, general manager, Turner Classic Movies. “The series allows us to bring fans another opportunity to engage with classic movies on the big screen from a variety of studios and eras in a way that aligns with our network’s mission to show films the way they were meant to be seen.”

“With classic titles from as early as 1931 all the way through the 70s, generations of fans will love having a second chance to enjoy their favorite films. With added insights from TCM hosts, Fathom Events and TCM continue to offer film fans a unique and memorable experience,” said Fathom Events vice president of programming Kymberli Frueh-Owens.
