“The audience response to the TCM Big Screen Classics has been extraordinary,” said Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations Tom Lucas in a statement. “As attendance has grown, movie lovers all around the country have told us how much they cherish the opportunity to see these incomparable classics on the big screen. We’re very excited to be partnering with TCM in 2018 to present an incredibly diverse lineup of films that really captures the magic of the movies.”
