Celebrate Richard Donner's 'Superman' on the big screen

Forty years ago, Warner Bros. Pictures and director Richard Donner cast Christopher Reeve, then a virtually unknown actor, as DC Comics‘ flagship hero. Surrounded by an all-star cast and backed by legendary movie talent behind the scenes, Reeve made the world believe that a man could fly. Now, in celebration of the film’s 40th anniversary, Fathom Events is bringing  “Superman” back to the big screen next Monday, December 3rd.

Arguably the most iconic comic book movie of all time, “Superman” wasn’t the man of steel’s first foray into the world of cinema. That honor belongs to the animated Max Fleischer Superman shorts, 17 of which were produced between 1941 and 1942, just a few years after Superman made his comic book debut. In honor of that fact, Fathom Event’s presentation of “Superman” is being accompanied by one of the first shorts, “The Mechanical Monsters”.

“Superman” will be screening at 7:00pm (local time) on nearly 400 screens across the country. Click on the image below to find a location near you!
