Turner Classic Movies (TCM) has set April 25-28, 2013, as the dates for the fourth-annual

TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood. TCM will welcome legendary stars, award-winning

filmmakers and classic movie fans from around the globe for the four-day cinematic

celebration, which this year will center on the theme Cinematic Journeys: Travel in the

Movies.

 

*Road to Hollywood*

Prior to the 2013 TCM Classic Film Festival, TCM will once again conduct a nationwide Road

to Hollywood tour of local film screenings. In keeping with the 2013 festival theme of

Cinematic Journeys: Travel in the Movies, TCM is teaming up with NASA and Kennedy

Space Center Visitor Complex for an extra-terrestrial screening of the sci-fi classic

Forbidden Planet (1956) on Saturday, Oct. 13. The film will not only be shown to fans at

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida, but has also been transmitted to the

International Space Station to be enjoyed by the astronauts on board.

 

In addition, astronaut Sunita Williams, who recently set a new spacewalking record, will

introduce Forbidden Planet to those here on Earth at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

from the International Space Station. Free tickets for the TCM screening of Forbidden Planet

can be obtained through the Road to Hollywood website at tcm.com/roadtohollywood.

Additional locations and films for TCM's Road to Hollywood tour will be announced in the

coming weeks.

 

*2013 TCM Classic Film Festival*

TCM host and film historian Robert Osborne will serve as official host of the 2013 TCM

Classic Film Festival, with TCM's Ben Mankiewicz also introducing various events during the

festival. The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, which has a longstanding role in movie history and

was the site of the first Oscars® ceremony, will once again serve as the official hotel for the

festival, as well as a central gathering point for attendees. Screenings and events will also be

held at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, the Chinese 6 Theatres and the Egyptian Theatre.

The Hollywood Roosevelt will also offer special rates for festival attendees.

 

Cinematic Journeys: Travel in the Movies, the theme for the 2013 TCM Classic Film Festival,

will explore how movies can carry viewers beyond their hometowns to distant or imaginary

locales, where they can be transformed by great storytelling. Often, the mode of travel

provides the filmic inspiration, whether it's planes, trains, or automobiles. At other times, the

trip itself serves as the central narrative, as in the case of many "road movies." With Hollywood

as the starting point, TCM's cinematic excursion will take festival attendees on a fascinating

journey to cinematic worlds both familiar and new.
