South Florida theaters will screen the 1988 Penny Marshall classic "Big," starring Tom Hanks, on Sunday and Wednesday.
(20th Century Fox/Courtesy / January 5, 2014)
Otherwise known as the movie in which Tom Hanks and Robert Loggia tap-dance “Heart and Soul” and “Chopsticks” on a giant electronic keyboard, the 1988 fantasy is marking its 25th anniversary with a handful of screenings at South Florida theaters. The Penny Marshall-directed film concerns a boy who becomes an adult overnight thanks to a wish-granting fortuneteller machine (Zoltar’s oscillating jaw and red eyes are the stuff of nightmares). Showtimes are 2 p.m. Sunday and 2 and 7 p.m. Wednesday at Cinemark Paradise 24 (15601 Sheridan St., Davie), Cinemark Palace 20 (3200 Airport Road, Boca Raton) and Cinemark Boynton Beach 14 (1151 N. Congress Ave.). $6.75-$13.25. Cinemark.com/Cinemark-Classic-Series
