One of the most epic movies of all time is set to return to movie theaters this weekend for its 60th anniversary.
"Ben-Hur" will play in more than 600 theaters nationwide on Sunday, April 14 and Wednesday, April 17.
Starring Charlton Heston as a Jewish prince who vows revenge when he is enslaved by his Roman childhood friend, "Ben-Hur" won 11 Oscars - a feat matched only by "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and Titanic."
The William Wyler-directed 1959 classic will be digitally projected in its original super-widescreen “Ultra 65” format. As part of TCM's Big Screen Classic Series, Ben-Hur will have insightful pre- and post-show commentary with TCM Primetime host Ben Mankiewicz.
Some of the theaters in which "Ben-Hur" will play in St. Louis include:
- Ronnies Cine
- Regal Gravois Bluffs Stadium 12
- Des Peres Cine
Tickets will be sold at FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.
