Transformers: The Movie, the classic animated full-length film from 1986, is coming back to theaters for one night only on September 27th 2018. Fathom Events will be hosting screenings all around the country, in association with Hasbro and Shout! Factory, featuring a completely remastered version (also released on Blu-ray in 2016).
The AUTOBOTS, led by the heroic OPTIMUS PRIME, prepare to make a daring attempt to retake their planet from the evil forces of MEGATRON and the DECEPTICONS. Unknown to both sides, a menacing force is heading their way – UNICRON. The only hope of stopping UNICRON lies within the Matrix of Leadership and the AUTOBOT who can rise up and use its power to light their darkest hour. Will the AUTOBOTS be able to save their native planet from destruction or will the DECEPTICONS reign supreme?
Also a part of the evenings festivities: a special sneak peek at December’s Bumblebee film and an interview and performances with Stan Bush, who performed the iconic song ‘The Touch’ for the film’s soundtrack.
This was a formative experience for many a young filmgoer. Not only was it a big-screen version of the beloved cartoon series, but for many the first time they experienced loss and dealt with the death of a beloved character. Spoilers I guess, but I still remember how watching Optimus Prime die made me feel. It is a seminal moment for children of a certain age that we can all gather in a theater 30+ years later and cry together again!
So how would you like to attend this one-night-only event? All you have to do is email us at email@example.com and tell us two things: Did you see this in the theater when it was first released, and who your favorite Autobot or Decepticon Transformers character is.
Well, you also need to tell us your theater of choice (with the state and zip code) and your legal name so you can pick up your tickets on September 27th.
