Year-Long Movie Ticket Giveaways to TCM Big Screen Classics
For the fifth consecutive year, Fathom Events and TCM present TCM Big Screen Classics — a year-long series of 15 movie classics shown on the Big Screen, each accompanied by insightful, specially-produced commentary from favorite TCM hosts. And — CMH is thrilled to say that — also — for the fifth consecutive year — we will be partnering with Fathom Events for our monthly classic movie ticket giveaways.
That said, Classic Movie Hub will be giving away tickets to each of the TCM Big Screen Classics playing throughout 2020. And, just like last year, it will be simple to enter… All you have to do is check back on this Blog every month OR follow us on Twitter at @ClassicMovieHub or on Facebook for our monthly contest announcements. Then complete that month’s entry task, and you will be entered into a random drawing to win a pair of tickets to that month’s movie event! That’s it!
And — if you can’t wait to win tickets, you can purchase them online by visiting FathomEvents.com, or at participating theater box offices.
So, now, as they say, let’s get the show on the road — with a list of the movie events.
