The original 1933 King Kong roars and rages its way back to movie screens across the country this March – something it hasn't done 64 years! Fathom Events and the TCM Big Screen Classics series give the legendary adventure its first nationwide movie release since Dwight D. Eisenhower as president. More than 600 cinemas across the country will only play King Kong King Kong for one day: Sunday, March 15th.
Detailed information is incredibly exciting in the following announcement to bring King Kong to the screen for the first time in the 21st century. While it was played in repertoire houses and specialty cinemas, of course, King Kong has not been released across the country since 1956, and while the world has changed astonishingly since then it is quite astonishing to think that King Kong remains an enduring film legend. Cinema goers can find their local participating theaters and buy tickets for King Kong now at FathomEvents.com.
Although it is a real icon of American cinema and one of the most recognizable creations ever put on the screen, King Kong from 1933 hasn't had a nationwide movie release in 64 years. This changes on Sunday, March 15th, when Fathom Events "Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World" publishes nationwide on more than 600 movie screens as part of the one-year TCM Big Screen Classics series.
Most recently, there was a large-screen republication in 1956 – when Dwight D. Eisenhower was president, the average movie ticket was 59 cents and not a single artificial object orbited the earth – that the original theatrical version of King Kong is back to blind the digital age with its purely analog miracles. In addition to this rare cinema event, TCM primetime presenter Ben Mankiewicz offers brand new insights and commentary on one of the best known, most influential (and still most exciting) films of all time.
The dazzling adventure groundbreaking stop-motion animation by Willis O & # 39; Brien – visual effects that despite the computer-generated advances made since the original publication of King Kong achieved almost 90 years ago, remain astonishing. The film plays Fay Wray, Robert Armstrong and Bruce Cabot and contains a lavish score by the legendary composer Max Steiner. Although it was remade twice and inspired countless films, TV shows and characters, the original from 1933 still has a power that film critic Roger Ebert described as "timeless and primeval".
