On December 2 and 5 Only, Moviegoers Will Fall in Love All Over Again as the Fathom Spotlight Series Presents the 1993 Classic

Twenty-five years ago, moviegoers fell in love with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan as two strangers searching for a soulmate in “Sleepless in Seattle.” As the romantic-comedy by director Nora Ephron marks its silver anniversary, Fathom Events and Sony Pictures Entertainment are bringing the enchanting film back to cinemas nationwide for two days only.

Tickets to “Sleepless in Seattle” are now available at or at participating theater box offices.

The Fathom Spotlight Series will present the 1993 box-office smash – along with a brand-new introduction by Meg Ryan and producer Gary Foster – in nearly 400 movie theaters nationwide for two days only: Sunday, December 2, at 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., and Wednesday, December 5, at 4:00 p.m.and 7:00 p.m. (all local times).

On its release, Roger Ebert praised “Sleepless in Seattle” as a film “so warm and gentle I smiled the whole way through,” and audiences couldn’t get enough of the second of four on-screen pairings of Ryan and Hanks. (1990’s “Joe Versus the Volcano,” “You’ve Got Mail” in 1998, and Ryan’s directorial debut “Ithaca” in 2015.) Filled with the strains of hopelessly romantic popular hits, “Sleepless in Seattle” was one of the five top-grossing films of 1993 and has also been named by the American Film Institute as one of the 10 most romantic movies ever made.

It’s the tale of two romantic souls destined to be together but kept apart by fate. After the death of his wife, Sam Baldwin (Hanks) is trapped in grief, and moves from Chicago to Seattle with his 8-year-old son Jonah (Ross Malinger in a scene-stealing role). Unsure of how to help his father get through the pain, Jonah calls a national radio show to seek the advice of a psychologist, immediately attracting the attention of millions of people, including reporter Annie Reed (Ryan). She can’t stop thinking about Sam’s predicament, even though she’s already engaged to Walter (Bill Pullman). Urged on by her best friend and editor (Rosie O’Donnell), Annie proposes a plan to meet Sam at the top of the Empire State Building on Valentine’s Day … but no one is sure the meeting will happen.

“We couldn’t let 2018 come to an end without honoring one of the truly great romantic comedies as it celebrates its 25th anniversary – and we’re doubly excited to have the help of Meg Ryan and Gary Foster, whose talents were so critical to making this film a success,” said Tom Lucas, Fathom Events VP of Studio Relations.

Tristar Pictures presents “Sleepless in Seattle” with executive producers Lynda Obst and Patrick Crowley. The story is by Jeff Arch with screenplay by Nora Ephron and David S. Ward and Jeff Arch. The film was produced by Gary Foster and directed by Nora Ephron. “Sleepless in Seattle” is available on Blu-rayTM, DVD and Digital.

EastCoast Entertainment (ECE), a nationally recognized entertainment booking agency, announced today it has merged with comedy giant The Comedy Zone Worldwide and will launch a new division, ECE Comedy, in the coming year. The combined company will serve as a leader in the comedy booking arena addressing the needs of event planners, venues, and individuals looking for innovative and trusted comedic entertainment.

As part of the merger, Brian Heffron, joins ECE as a managing partner and will lead the ECE Comedy division. He will also maintain his personal ownership stake in the three Comedy Zone club locations he owns and manages. Also coming on board are Heffron’s longtime counterparts, Len Kure and Joel Pace.

Established in 1986, Heffron and his team have grown the brand by licensing The Comedy Zone name and booking comedians for a multitude of venues and clients across the country, including over 60 Comedy Zone club locations producing over 100 shows per week.

The Comedy Zone is a household name and has a tremendous reputation for providing top-notch service to their clients in addition to the most talented comedians.

AIM Tell-A-Vision® Group (AIM TV) announced today that its internationally syndicated television series Raw Travel® will premiere several new episodes beginning this February.

In a first for the TV series, Raw Travel is rolling out a select group of episodes entitled “Going Solo.” The first was filmed in Costa Rica followed by two others filmed in Colombia. Each “Going Solo” episode will showcase the special joys and challenges of solo travel. In the “Going Solo” episodes, host and producer, Robert G. Rose, visits destinations without his usual film crew or planned agenda and relies on serendipity and the kindness of locals he meets along the way to travel and film.

“I’m extremely excited about the solo travel episodes because they allowed me to get back to the roots of what inspired me to travel in the first place, authentic interactions with locals,” says Robert G. Rose, Producer and Host of Raw Travel. “We began with Costa Rica because it had special meaning. It was my very first solo trip abroad many years ago, and it changed my life. That trip was instrumental in both my decision to become a media entrepreneur and it marked the moment when I first fell in love with travel in general and solo travel in particular,” Rose continued.

“Going Solo: Costa Rica” premieres February 2nd & 3rd with a look at the hidden charms of the capital city of San Jose followed by a road trip to the country’s west coast for a more traditional beach experience. The “Going Solo” theme continues in late April with the premiere of the first of two episodes set in Colombia, South America. The April debut features Robert exploring the capital city of Bogota and the more touristic colonial coastal town of Cartagena before heading off the grid a bit to experience the hidden charms of Cali, Colombia. The follow up “Going Solo: Medellin(Colombia),” will air in Season 7 beginning fall 2019, followed by other solo adventures set in Hong Kong, Southern China and Jakarta, Indonesia.

Other new, traditionally filmed Raw Travel episodes will also premiere in February, April and May with “Tahiti” (Feb 9th-10th), “Foodtastic Korea” (Feb. 16th-17th), “Historic Downtown Sanford, Florida” (Feb. 23rd-24th) and the 1st of several episodes set in Indonesia “Sailing Away to Raja Ampat, Indonesia.”

Raw Travel is currently in its 6th season and can be seen on local broadcast affiliates (ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, etc.) in over 172 U.S. cities in 95% of the USA as well as several international territories including Asia (Nat Geo People), Europe (Fox Iberia), India (Amazon), Africa and more, as well as on many domestic and international airlines.
