The revamped festivals will be taking over the silver screen in dozens of cities across the country starting January 18.

The event offers a chance to watch these movies at a discount, bringing a line-up of 11 flicks back to theatres for a limited time.

Flashback Film Series line-up:

  • Superman (screening January 18 to 31)
  • Being John Malkovich 20th Anniversary (screening February 15 to 28)
  • Thelma and Louise (screening March 1 to 14)
  • Spaceballs (screening March 15 to 28)
  • The Matrix 20th Anniversary (screening March 29 to April 11)

Classic Film Series 2019 line-up:

  • The Sound of Music (screening starts January 27)
  • Gone with the Wind 80th Anniversary (screening starts February 10)
  • The African Queen (screening starts March 3)
  • Easter Parade (screening starts April 14)
  • Shadow of a Doubt (screening starts May 5)
  • Kramer vs. Kramer (screening starts June 16)

Tickets for the films cost $6.99 per showing, which is roughly half the cost of seeing a new movie in theatres.

So, whether you’re into seeing an Austrian family sing their hearts out, a wacky take on Star Wars, or leather-clad ninja assassins defy the laws of physics, there’s something for you at the movies this year.
