The Groundbreaking Film That Started a Pop-Culture Phenomenon Can Once Again Be Experienced on the Big Screen

The legendary 1968 science fiction masterpiece “Planet of the Apeswill return to the big screen, crash landing in U.S. cinemas on July 24 and 27 as part of Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies’ (TCM) yearlong TCM Big Screen Classics series.

As part of this special presentation, TCM host Ben Mankiewicz will provide exclusive commentary before and after the feature, offering an inside look at the out-of-this-world classic. The event will screen at more than 650 select movie theaters nationwide, four times only, at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. local time each day.

Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall star in this legendary science fiction masterpiece. Astronaut Taylor (Heston) finds himself on a distant planet ruled by apes who use a primitive race of humans for experimentation and sport. Soon, Taylor finds himself among the hunted, his life in the hands of a benevolent chimpanzee scientist (McDowall).

When it was released in February 1968, the film was a commercial and critical success, also breaking ground with its revolutionary prosthetic makeup techniques created by artist John Chambers. The “Planet of the Apes” franchise is still going strong today with the 2011 reboot and its 2014 sequel achieving box office success and strong support amongst critics. The highly anticipated third film in that trilogy will debut in 2017.

Tickets to TCM Big Screen Classics: PLANET OF THE APES can be purchased online from Fathom Events.
