If it worked for The Iron Giant, why not Space Jam?
Following up on last year’s successful limited re-release of the Brad Bird pic, Fathom Events has announced that they will re-release Space Jam into more than 450 U.S. theaters for a limited two-day run in honor of the film’s 20th anniversary. The film, which combined the charm of funny classic cartoon characters with the listless performances of then-popular NBA basketball players, will return to the bigscreen on Sunday, November 13 (2:00pm and 6:00pm showtimes), and Wednesday, November 16 (7:00 pm showtime).
Playing in front of the Space Jam re-release will be the Reel FX-produced CGI Looney Tunes short I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat, which originally screened in front of Happy Feet Two in 2011.
“Space Jam has been a family favorite for the last 20 years and is sure to remain so for the next 20 and beyond,” Fathom Events vice president of studio relations Tom Lucas said in a press statement. “This event is the perfect chance for audiences of all ages to view the film as it was meant to be seen—on the big screen.”
