The 1990 holiday hit film starring Macaulay Culkin celebrates its 25th anniversary this fall and returns to select theaters for two nights Nov. 8 and 11. The presentation by Fathom Events and Twentieth Century Fox also features a special introduction exclusive to the celebration.
Directed by Chris Columbus and written by John Hughes, Home Alone starred Culkin as Kevin McAllister, an 8-year-old who gets left behind when his family departs for a Christmas vacation and has to singlehandledly fight off a couple dimwitted burglars (Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci) trying to rob his house. The cast also features Catherine O’Hara, John Heard and the late John Candy.
Home Alone garnered two Academy Award nominations and was the top-selling movie of 1990 with a box office of $285.8 million.
Tickets for the Home Alone 25th-anniversary shows and a list of participating theater locations are available at FathomEvents.com.
In addition, a Home Alone: Anniversary Collection will be released Oct. 6 with all five Home Alone movies on DVD, plus Blu-ray and digital HD versions of the original and 1992 sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.
