Fans of actor Tom Hanks will get their fill this summer at a movie theatre event dedicated entirely to the legendary actor.
Hanksfest is hitting Cineplex theatres nationwide beginning July 6, showcasing a month of Hanks’ most iconic films on the big screen.
The four-week film celebration will each bring “A League of Their Own,” “Big,” “Apollo 13” and “Forrest Gump” to Cineplex theatres for a one-week run.
“Tom Hanks has consistently given acclaimed performances throughout his long career while remaining a relatable and admired individual off-screen,” said Brad LaDouceur, vice-president, Event Cinema, Cineplex.
“With such an impressive filmography, we thought it fitting to create Hanksfest as a tribute to his work that audiences across Canada can enjoy.”
The Canada-wide screenings also coincide with Tom Hanks’ 62nd birthday on July 9.
