Everybody Get Up, It’s Time to Slam Now: Space Jam Returning to Theaters

space jam slam dunk

You can’t mention Space Jam these days without having to step over a sequel rumor or two. That being said, here’s a bit of news that has nothing to do with the sequel. Fans of the classic, original Space Jam will get to relive some childhood memories as Fathom Events is bringing the movie back to theaters on November 13th and 16th. Originally released on November 15th, 1996, these dates are, of course, around the movie’s 20th anniversary. That’s right, the movie’s just one year away from being able to legally purchase alcohol.

Though let’s be honest, with the way things have gone for Jordan and the ‘Tunes, Space Jam probably found a way to get its own batch of Secret Stuff. By “Secret Stuff,” I mean vodka in a water bottle. Stealth mode. You know how it goes.

To find out if your friendly local brick and mortar theater will be hosting a Jam, head on over to Fathom Events’ uh, event page. Oh, and here you go, because I knew you were going to ask for it:

You’re welcome.
