More than new releases: taking advantage of Fathom Events’ screenings

Classic films of the 20th century, live broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera in Manhattan and the latest in pop culture phenomenon from anime to “Doctor Who” — in 2019 there’s actually a lot more you can do at the movie theater than just see new releases.

Tickets for the shows, distributed by Fathom Events, can be bought online or at the door.

Here are some highlights from the coming months worth checking out:

Turner Classic Movies: Kicking off with “The Wizard of Oz,” (ending tonight, Jan. 30) which is celebrating its mammoth 80th anniversary this year, several all-time great films will be available to revisit in the theaters.

For many, this will be their first opportunity to see these films in a proper theater setting, rather than on a small television at home.

Wednesday, Jan. 30: “The Wizard of Oz” Feb. 17 and 20: “My Fair Lady” Feb. 28 and March 3: “Gone with the Wind” March 24 and March 27: “To Kill a Mockingbird”

The Metropolitan Opera Live Broadcasts:

Can’t afford a trip to New York — let alone ticket prices to the renowned Metropolitan Opera? No problem. These are live HD broadcasts.

Feb. 2, 6 and 9: “Carmen” March 2 and 6: “La Fille Du Régiment” March 30 and April 3: “Die Walküre” Anime: Some of the most critically acclaimed animated films aren’t from Pixar, Disney or DreamWorks, but rather from a multitude of studios in Japan. Japanese animation, better known as anime, is often trailblazing and ahead of the curve.

Thursday, Jan. 31: “A Silent Voice” Feb. 7 and 10: “I Want to Eat Your Pancreas” Feb. 19: “Mobile Suit Gundam NT” March 14: “Fate/Stay Night Heaven’s Feel II: Lost Butterfly” Other events include “Diana Ross: Her Life, Love and Legacy March 26 and 28; “The Moses Controversy” on March 14, 16 and 19; “Bolshoi Ballet: The Sleeping Beauty” on March 10 and “Doctor Who: Logopolis” March 13.
