Fathom Events has announced that they’ll be bringing director Rob Reiner’s classic film Stand By Me back to select movie theaters later this month for its 35th anniversary. The movie is based on Stephen King’s novella The Body, and in my opinion, it’s one of the best King adaptations that has been produced.

The movie stars Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Jerry O'Connell, and Kiefer Sutherland, and it’s a film about friendship and the indelible experiences of growing up. The movie will be released by Fathom Events in select theaters on Sun., May 23rd at 3 pm and 7 pm and Wed., May 26th 7 pm.

Filled with humor and suspense, Stand By Me is the tale of four boys on a two-day journey. In a treehouse at the edge of Castle Rock, a small, woodsy Oregon town, a budding 12-year-old writer named Gordie LaChance (Wheaton) is about to begin an extraordinary trek into the heart of the northwestern forest, an experience that will alter the course of his life forever. His best friend Vern (O'Connell) has overheard his older brother and a friend talking about their discovery of a dead body in the woods. Hoping they can get credit for finding the body, Gordie sets off with insecure, frightened Vern, tough guy Chris (Phoenix), and daredevil Teddy (Feldman) on an adventure that becomes an odyssey of self-discovery. Their journey begins innocently with a dream of becoming town heroes, but before it is over, Gordie, Chris, Teddy, and Vern will be tested in ways they had never imagined.

This special 35th anniversary event will also include the featurette “Walking the Tracks: The Summer of Stand by Me” with Stephen King as he recalls what led him to write the stories of his childhood, how they impacted the development of the movie, and Rob Reiner as he reminisces about the casting of the four leads.

Tickets for the Stand By Me 35th Anniversary are on sale now at https://www.fathomevents.com/events/Sta ... nniversary and through participating cinemas’ box offices.

I know it's Stephen King and the cast is pretty good, but why oh why would I pay to see this 35 year old movie at the theater? lol
