The Fox Theatre will throw out the first pitch of 2014 Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival with a screening of Field of Dreams on Thursday night.
It's the 25th anniversary of the beloved baseball flick and it starts the festival that will take audiences down memory lane with nine movies celebrating anniversaries:
- Gone With The Wind
- The Wizard of Oz
- Mary Poppins Sing-A-Long
- The Women
- Blazing Saddles,
- Young Frankenstein
- Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
- Double Indemnity
- Field of Dreams
Additional audience favorites that will be shown on the Fox Theatre’s 26-foot high x 56-foot-8-inch wide big screen include the 1933 version of King Kong, Mamma Mia!, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, The Philadelphia Story, and Saturday Morning Cartoons will introduce children to the classics like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd that their parents grew up watching and still know and love. Audiences will also enjoy a special treat with the double-feature of Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles for one price.
Special Movie Tours will be available prior to the films, allowing guests to experience guided tours through the projection booth, screening room, celebrity dressing rooms, and the iconic Fox Theatre stage while learning about the history of movie palaces and Mr. William Fox’s innovations.
