TCM Big Screen Classics Kick Off w/ BUTCH CASSIDY & THE SUNDANCE KID

Fathom Events & TCM Kick Off the Biggest-Ever TCM Big Screen Classics Series w/ Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid

Comes to More Than 650 Movie Screens Nationwide

One 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.
