TCM kicks off 2016 series with ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’, two nights in theaters

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance KidOne of the most influential and highest-grossing Westerns ever made, BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID rides back into movie theaters for the first time in 40 years – but for two days only, Jan. 17 and Jan. 20, as Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies (TCM) begin the spectacular year-long TCM Big Screen Classics series.

With its iconic performances by Paul Newman as Butch Cassidy, Robert Redford as The Sundance Kid and Katherine Ross as Etta Place, director George Roy Hill’s sprawling comedy-drama has delighted audiences around the world, but hasn’t been seen on the big screen in nearly two generations.

On more than 650 screens around the country, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid will screen four times only: on Sunday, Jan. 17, and Wednesday, Jan. 20, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. local time both days.

Nominated for seven Academy Awards®, Twentieth Century Fox’s Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid won two Oscars®, for William Goldman’s original screenplay and for Burt Bacharach’s original score.

TCM Big Screen Classics: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid will also feature specially-produced commentary by TCM host Ben Mankiewicz.

More than 650 select movie theaters nationwide.  Tickets are available online at www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.  For a complete list of participating theaters, click on the “Theater Locations” tab.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is the first film in 2016’s program.
