Laugh and cry along with Ouiser, Clairee, Truvy, M’Lynn, Annelle and Shelby when the 1989 classic “Steel Magnolias” returns to the big screen for a limited engagement to commemorate its 30th anniversary.

The film stars Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Dukakis, Dolly Parton, Sally Field, Daryl Hannah and Julia Roberts as close-knit friends in a small Southern town. Screenings — part of Fathom Events’ TCM Big Screen Classics Series — will be held at more than 600 movie theaters all over the nation, including several in San Diego County.

The film garnered a best supporting actress Oscar nomination for Roberts, who portrayed Shelby. If anything, sit for two hours and five minutes and enjoy Southern repartee from Dukakis’ Clairee: “Well, you know what they say: if you don’t have anything nice to say about anybody, come sit by me!”

“Steel Magnolias": 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. today. 7 p.m. Tuesday. 7 p.m. Wednesday. Various movie theaters across the county. $12.50. fathomevents.com/events/tcm2019-steel-magnolias-30th-anniversary-1989
