New York, NY (July 25, 2019) – Fans of all ages will enjoy the 50th Anniversary event cinema release of the two full-length digitally re-mastered Peanuts® movies: A Boy Named Charlie Brown and Snoopy, Come Home when the animated features appear in cinema for the first time since 1969 and 1972.
See the original Peanuts® characters like you’ve never seen them before. Humorous and heart-tugging, both features bring back the joys of childhood and teach kids today’s important life lessons during their most impressionable years. Filled with laughter, courage, loyalty and the lovable friends we all relate to, the original Peanuts® movies will win the hearts of a whole new generation and create a cinematic experience the whole family will enjoy.
Created by Charles M. Schulz, one of the comic world’s most influential cartoonists, Peanuts® became one of the most popular comic strips of all time with Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, Peppermint Patty, Woodstock and Pigpen—among the most cherished. Both feature films were written by Charles M. Schulz and directed by Bill Melendez.
CineLife Entertainment®, the event cinema division of Spotlight Cinema Networks, and CBS Home Entertainment are re-releasing the films in movie theatres throughout North America as a three-day event that arrives just in time for back to school months. Screening at participating theatres nationwide on August 18, 21 and 24, 2019 is A Boy Named Charlie Brown and September 29, October 3 and 5, 2019 for Snoopy, Come Home.

Introverted yet earnest, the world’s most adored underdog, Charlie Brown is the central person in A Boy Named Charlie Brown, in which he musters up the courage to enter his school’s spelling contest and goes on to compete in the National Spelling Bee. View the trailer:
