Original 'Planet Of The Apes' Returns To Theaters For Two Nights At The End Of July

Even though this year doesn't mark a special anniversary for the classic 1968 sci-fi adventure Planet of the Apes, that doesn't mean you don't have a good reason to see the movie on the big screen. And the good news is that at the end of the month, Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events will give you the opportunity to do just that.

As part of the year-long programming initiative called TCM Big Screen Classics, the original Planet of the Apes starring Charlton Heston will be returning to theaters towards the end of July for just two nights in select theaters across the country. Get all the details on Planet of the Apes in theaters after the jump.
