Film Noir Classic ‘The Maltese Falcon’ Returning To Theaters For 75th Anniversary Screening

Film Noir Classic 'The Maltese Falcon' Returning To Theaters For 75th Anniversary Screening

The pedigree of John Huston‘s “The Maltese Falcon” doesn’t need to be explained. It’s one of the greatest film noir pictures ever made, one of Humphrey Bogart‘s best movies too, and there are really not enough superlatives to laud the Oscar-nominated movie. If you’ve seen the movie, chances are it’s been on home video, or if you’re lucky, you managed to capture a repertory screening at some point. But there’s good news today as the movie is celebrating it’s 75th anniversary this year, and a big screen return is in the works.

Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies are bringing “The Maltese Falcon” to over 650 screens on February 21st and 24th. On those dates you’ll be transported to San Francisco to chase the stuff that dreams are made of, and watch Bogart effortlessly square off against Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet. The chance to watch this one on the big screen will be a rare treat.

Tickets are on sale now, and it’s an event you won’t want to miss. [THR]
