Fourteen of Hollywood's greatest films are returning to the big screen for the second annual "TCM Big Screen Classics" series, presented by Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies. TCM Big Screen Classics offer film fans of all ages and generations a chance to experience a number of Hollywood classics the way they were meant to be seen — on a ridiculously large screen complete with junk food and smiles.

This year's series will bring 14 iconic films to theaters nationwide (in the United States), with one or more screenings per month beginning in January.

Each title will be digitally projected in its original aspect ratio, feature a specially produced commentary from hosts Ben Mankiewicz and Tiffany Vazquez and will screen four times only. Screenings will take place at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. local time on select Sundays and Wednesdays.

Some of the classic titles screening this year include Some Like It Hot, The Princess Bride and Singin' In The Rain. Tom Lucas, Fathom's Vice President of Studio Relations, said in a statement regarding the titles:

"These 14 titles were released over five decades and include Best Picture winners, epic cinematography, most acclaimed directors, legendary star power, and memorable soundtracks, that have captured film-lovers’ hearts and defined movie-making magic.”
