It's been 30 years since farmer Ray Kinsella, played by Kevin Costner, heard a mysterious voice telling him "If you build it, he will come."

To mark the 30th anniversary of "Field of Dreams" — the classic film about fathers, sons, baseball and the power of faith — Fathom Events and TCM Big Screen Classics will bring the movie back to the big screen for two days only: Sunday, June 16, and Tuesday, June 18.

Tickets to "Field of Dreams" would make a perfect Father's Day gift for dads who love baseball and/or are movie buffs.

Not only will the encore screenings mark the movie's 30th anniversary, they are also near the 100th anniversary of the 1919 Chicago "Black Sox" World Series scandal that is so pivotal to this film.

In "Field of Dreams," the scandal that plagued baseball fascinates Ray as he undertakes an extraordinary gamble before setting off on a journey that connects him with three unlikely allies: reclusive author Terence Mann (James Earl Jones), baseball player Archibald "Moonlight" Graham (Burt Lancaster) and "Shoeless Joe" Jackson (Ray Liotta). With the support of his wife (Amy Madigan), Ray discovers the importance of long-sought forgiveness.

Before and after each presentation, TCM Primetime host Ben Mankiewicz will offer insight into the making and legacy of the film.

"Field of Dreams" will be shown at the following theaters Sunday, June 16:

* Regal Hamilton Place 8, 2000 Hamilton Place Blvd., 1 p.m.

* AMC Chattanooga 18, 5080 South Terrace, 1 and 4 p.m.

* UEC Theatres 14, 137 Pleasant Grove Road, McDonald, Tennessee, 1 p.m.

On June 18, the movie will be screened at 4 and 7 p.m. at Regal Hamilton Place 8 and AMC Chattanooga 18.

Tickets can be purchased at www.FathomEvents.com or at theater box offices.
