DENVER – September 17, 2015 – To mark the anniversary of one of the best live-action comedies of all time, Fathom Events and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment present Home Alone 25th Anniversary, coming to select cinemas for two dates on Sunday, November 8 and Wednesday, November 11. What better way to get into the holiday spirit than by enjoying this Christmas comedy blockbuster with the whole family on its original home of the big screen.

Featuring a superstar cast led by Macaulay Culkin in the role that made him an international household name, relive every pratfall and prank with Catherine O’Hara, John Heard, John Candy, Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern. The franchise, that spawned four sequels and three video games, begins as eight-year-old Kevin McCallister (Culkin) has become the man of the house, overnight! Accidentally left behind when his family rushes off on a Christmas vacation, Kevin gets busy decorating the house for the holidays. But he’s not decking the halls with tinsel and holly. Two bumbling burglars are trying to break in, and Kevin’s rigging a bewildering battery of booby traps to welcome them!
“Long-time fans and first-time viewers of ‘Home Alone’ will laugh together at their local cinema this November,” said Fathom Events CEO John Rubey. “We’re proud to be partnering with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment to give audiences this unique opportunity to re-experience a classic as it was meant to be seen.”
