Planes and Automobiles’

Just in time for the holidays, Fathom Events and Paramount Pictures are bringing one of the most outrageous and beloved comedies of all time back to select cinemas to celebrate its 35th anniversary on Sunday, Nov. 6 and Monday, Nov. 7.

“Planes, Trains and Automobiles” tells the story of two very opposite men who band together in a trek to make it home for the holidays –and just about everything that could go wrong, does.

Steve Martin and John Candy star in this hysterical (and often heart-warming) tale of travel gone awry. Neal Page (Martin) is an uptight ad exec trying to get home to Chicago for Thanksgiving with his family. When rerouted to Wichita, Neal reluctantly partners with Del Griffith (Candy), an obnoxious yet loveable salesman. Together, they embark on a cross-country adventure that includes multiple modes of transportation, unbelievable mishaps, intimate motel accommodations, and unforgettable rental car shenanigans.

It’s a must-see holiday adventure from writer, director, and producer John Hughes (“Home Alone”, “Sixteen Candles”, “The Breakfast Club”). This special Fathom Event also includes a first look at a never-before-seen extended scene from the filmmaker’s archives.

Locally, the film will be screened at Island 16 Cinema De Lux, 185 Morris Ave., Holtsville on Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. and Nov. 7 at 7 p.m.; AMC Stony Brook 17, 2196 Nesconset Highway, Stony Brook on Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Nov. 7 at 7 p.m.; and Regal Farmingdale 10, 20 Michael Ave., Farmingdale on Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Nov. 7 at 7 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased online at Fathom Events or at participating theater box offices.
