Return to the Movies With These Summer Classics

Return to the Movies With These Summer Classics

(06/17/2020)

It's time to go back to the movies! We're excited to welcome guests back to our theatres. Along with a new set of safety procedures which will ensure the safety of all guests and employees, we're happy to present a huge slate of Comeback Classics — movies we know and love, and are thrilled to see on the big screen once again.

We're also kicking off our reopening with a few recent favorites, like the video game adaptation SONIC THE HEDGEHOG, the modernized THE INVISIBLE MAN, the vibrant sequel JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL, and the intense thriller THE HUNT. But let's focus on our slate of Comeback Classics. These movies all look and sound amazing on the big screen. No matter how many times you've seen them, they're never better than when projected in a movie theatre.

Here's the first wave of our Comeback Classics movie lineup.

The Matrix

Mad Max: Fury Road

Original Release Date: March 31, 1999

Director(s): Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski

Stars: Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, and Joe Pantoliano

Why it is a summer essential: The Wachowskis fused Hong Kong imagery, comic book inspiration and visions of a dystopian technological future to create one of the most striking and unique action movies to hit the big screen.

Mad Max: Fury Road

Original Release Date: May 14, 2015

Director(s): George Miller

Stars: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Riley Keough, Zoë Kravitz, Abbey Lee, and Courtney Eaton

Why it is a summer essential: Where THE MATRIX showed us a tech-heavy future, FURY ROAD takes a more dirty and oil-stained approach to the apocalypse — and the relentless car chase action is filmed with such style and attention to detail that it is impossible to look away.

Back to the Future

Original Release Date: July 3, 1985

Director(s): Robert Zemeckis

Stars: Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover, and Thomas F. Wilson

Why it is a summer essential:: Time travel has never been as much fun as it is in BACK TO THE FUTURE, in which Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd play a high school kid and his scientist mentor whose unorthodox experiments lead to a very tricky family situation.

Wonder Woman

Original Release Date: June 2, 2017

Director(s): Patty Jenkins

Stars: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya

Why it is a summer essential: It took a long time for Wonder Woman to come to the big screen, but once she got her own movie, director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Gadot delivered a story about heroism and sacrifice that stands as one of the very best superhero movies.

Jaws

Original Release Date: June 20, 1975

Director(s): Steven Spielberg

Stars: Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss, Lorraine Gary, Murray Hamilton

Why it is a summer essential:JAWS redefined our relationship to the beach, and visualized the stuff of unseen underwater nightmares in the most appealing way possible.

Space Jam

Original Release Date: November 15, 1996

Director(s): Joe Pytka

Stars: Michael Jordan, Billy West, Wayne Knight, Theresa Randle, Danny DeVito, Dee Bradley Baker, Kath Soucie, and Bill Murray

Why it is a summer essential: An entire generation grew up watching SPACE JAM obsessively at home, where it was pretty much the only good time sci-fi sports movie out there. Seeing it on the big screen is a nostalgia slam-dunk.

Blade Runner: Final Cut

Original Release Date: June 25, 1982 (original); October 5, 2007 (The Final Cut)

Director(s): Ridley Scott

Stars: Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Daryl Hannah, William Sanderson, Brion James, M. Emmet Walsh and Edward James Olmos

Why it is a summer essential: A few movies in our Comeback Classics lineup are templates for blockbusters made today, and BLADE RUNNER still echoes through the movies of Marvel and DC Comics.

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Original Release Date: May 2, 1997

Director(s): Jay Roach

Stars: Mike Myers, Elizabeth Hurley, Robert Wagner, Seth Green, and Michael York

Why it is a summer essential: Austin Powers may have been shocked at the complexities of 1997 after waking up from a 30-year slumber, but now his '90s antics look appealingly care-free. We get a proper new James Bond movie this year, but why not lead into it by revisiting the best parody of Bond's antics?

Get Out

Original Release Date: February 24, 2017

Director(s): Jordan Peele

Stars: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Lil Rel Howery, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Stephen Root, and Catherine Keener

Why it is a summer essential: Jordan Peele's first feature film is a viciously effective horror movie, and it seems even more timely and relevant now than upon its original release a few years ago.

Mean Girls

Original Release Date: April 30, 2004

Director(s): Mark Waters

Stars: Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Tim Meadows, Ana Gasteyer, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey

Why it is a summer essential:: MEAN GIRLS is one of the smartest and funniest movies about high school, and it transformed Lindsey Lohan from a teen idol into a true movie star. The story of Lohan's character navigating cliques in a new high school was so right on the money that the title has become a shorthand for a certain type of friend group, even for people who haven't seen the movie.

The LEGO Movie

Original Release Date: February 7, 2014

Director(s): Phil Lord and Christopher Miller

Stars: Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson, and Morgan Freeman

Why it is a summer essential: THE LEGO MOVIE is everything we want out of a summer movie: Adventurous, funny, musical, colorful, and packed with memorable dialogue and characters. It's a true magic trick, which turned LEGO blocks — which, by design, can be anything — into a story that is both specific and universal.

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Original Release Date: June 12, 1981

Director(s): Steven Spielberg

Stars: Harrison Ford, Karen Allen, Paul Freeman, Ronald Lacey, John Rhys-Davies, Denholm Elliott

Why it is a summer essential: George Lucas and Steven Spielberg turned inspiration from old movie serials into a whip-cracking and sharply funny adventure. Harrison Ford's true star-making movie features run-ins with ancient traps, Biblical powers and a whole bunch of Nazis.
