“A man don’t go his own way, he’s nothing.” Go your own way to cinemas when Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Sony Pictures Entertainment bring the compelling war-time drama From Here to Eternity (1953) back to the big screen for a special two-day event on Sunday, December 11 and Wednesday, December 14.

It's 1941. Robert E. Lee Prewitt has requested Army transfer and has ended up at Schofield in Hawaii. His new captain, Dana Holmes, has heard of his boxing prowess and is keen to get him to represent the company. However, 'Prew' is adamant that he doesn't box anymore, so Captain Holmes gets his subordinates to make his life a living hell. Meanwhile Sergeant Warden starts seeing the captain's wife, who has a history of seeking external relief from a troubled marriage. Prew's friend Maggio has a few altercations with the sadistic stockade Sergeant 'Fatso' Judson, and Prew begins falling in love with social club employee Lorene. Unbeknownst to anyone, the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor looms in the distance.

Winner of eight Academy Awards®, including Best Picture in 1953, this patriotic narrative about war and love is a film to be remembered for all of eternity.

This film will be shown in the same aspect ratio as when it was originally released in cinemas.
