Hard to believe that it has been 25 years since the release of Forrest Gump. To celebrate this classic, the film will have a special outdoor screening leading into Memorial Day (May 24th) at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. and will be in select theaters on June 23rd and 25th. Additionally, a newly remastered version of the film is now available in a two-disc Blu-ray.
This is one of the all-time classics, so it’s cool to see it being celebrated. Paramount is going all-out with this event, so if you aren’t in the D.C. area you can still see it on the big screen nationwide, presented by Fathom Events. Sometimes life is a box of chocolate’s and gives you treats like this.
