Some of the best films ever made are returning to theaters in 2017. Thanks to TCM and Fathom Events, E.T, Casablanca and many other classic films will return to the screen for the 2017 edition of the TCM Big Screen Classics series.

Each film will screen only four times, on select Wednesdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
