It’s been 20 years since the Tune Squad played the Monstars for galactic supremacy in “Space Jam,” and the hardwood classic is returning to theaters for a special two-day event next month.
Fathom Events and Warner Bros. Entertainment will present screenings of the comedy in select theaters across the U.S. on Nov. 13 (2 p.m. and 6 p.m. local time) and Nov. 16 (7 p.m. local time), celebrating the film’s milestone anniversary. Participating theaters and tickets are available on Fathom Event’s website.
“‘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 VP Tom Lucas said in a 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.”
The film, which earned $230 million worldwide, stars Michael Jordan, Bill Murray and the entire roster of Looney Tunes characters, most notably Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. There were also brief appearances from some of Jordan’s on-court adversaries from the ’90s, including Patrick Ewing and Charles Barkley.
In May, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that a sequel is in the works, starring LeBron James and directed by Justin Lin (“Star Trek Beyond,” “Fast & Furious 6).
