    What’s the deal with “Color Purple” and “King Kong” only showing on Sunday?? (I DON’T like it only being on this day!!)

    • Completely understand your enthusiasm for these two films. TCM and Fathom Events have been known to add showings when the turnout is excellent. Perhaps if these films are well attended, that could be the case for The Color Purple and King Kong. Encourage your friends to attend.

    I enjoyed the Big Screen Classics I saw during 2019, and I’m looking forward to seeing more great films in 2020.

    If I am correct, 2020 is the 25th anniversary of one of my favorite films—Apollo 13. It’s also the 50th anniversary of the actual event.

    Do you think there is a possibility that Apollo 13 might be added to the schedule??

    • Hi Mary. Sorry for the lag time in responding to your comment. Apollo 13 is available on demand at Watch TCM.
