The Fox Theatre has announced the official movie lineup for the 2014 Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival, sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company and Delta Airlines.

The 2014 Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival will take audiences down memory lane beginning this June with nine movies celebrating anniversaries: Gone With The Wind, The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins Sing-A-Long, The Women, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, Double Indemnity and Field of Dreams, which was selected through the Fox Theatre’s Facebook fan vote.

Additional audience favorites that will be shown on the Fox Theatre’s 26-foot high x 56-foot-8-inch wide big screen include  the 1933 version of King Kong, Mamma Mia!, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, The Philadelphia Story, and Saturday Morning Cartoons (which will introduce children to the classics like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Elmer Fudd that their parents grew up watching and still know and love.)  Audiences will also enjoy a special treat with the double-feature of Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles for one price.  

In addition to enjoying a movie under the blue sky with twinkling stars and fluffy clouds, the Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival offers guests a magical pre-show experience that includes a sing-along with the Mighty Mo organ and a vintage cartoon.  The organist for the Atlanta Braves, Matt Kaminski, will be a special guest organist prior to Field of Dreams.

Special Movie Tours will be available prior to the films, allowing guests to experience guided tours through the projection booth, screening room, celebrity dressing rooms, and the iconic Fox Theatre stage while learning about the history of movie palaces and Mr. William Fox’s innovations.
