Featuring a superstar cast led by Macaulay Culkin in the role that made him an international household name, relive every pratfall and prank with Catherine O'Hara, John Heard, John Candy, Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern. The franchise, that spawned four sequels and three video games, begins as eight-year-old Kevin McCallister (Culkin) has become the man of the house, overnight! Accidentally left behind when his family rushes off on a Christmas vacation, Kevin gets busy decorating the house for the holidays.
But he's not decking the halls with tinsel and holly. Two bumbling burglars are trying to break in, and Kevin's rigging a bewildering battery of booby traps to welcome them! Directed by Chris Columbus (Mrs. Doubtfire) and written by John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles), this beloved classic is a must-see holiday film for the whole family. Here's what Fathom Events CEO John Rubey had to say in a statement.
"Long-time fans and first-time viewers of Home Alone will laugh together at their local cinema this November. We're proud to be partnering with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment to give audiences this unique opportunity to re-experience a classic as it was meant to be seen."
