TCM Classic Film Festival to open with John Travolta at 30th anniversary screening of “Pulp Fiction”

TCM announced today that the 15th annual TCM Classic Film Festival will open with a 30th anniversary screening of the classic neo-noir Pulp Fiction (1994) with two-time Academy Award-nominee, Golden Globe and Emmy winner John Travolta in attendance. This Opening Night red carpet gala event will be presented on a 35mm print projected on the big screen at the world famous TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX.

“Pulp Fiction is one of the most important and influential movies of the 1990s. It was Quentin Tarantino’s magnum opus and the beginning of a well-deserved comeback for John Travolta,” said Ben Mankiewicz, TCM Primetime Anchor and Official Host of the TCM Classic Film Festival. “Like Bonnie and Clyde and The Godfather, it changed our thinking about the type of stories Hollywood could tell.”

TCM previously announced academic and author Jeanine Basinger as the 2024 Robert Osborne Award recipient, which recognizes an individual who has helped keep the cultural heritage of classic film alive for future generations. She has chosen to introduce a screening of Westward The Women (1951) as part of this event.

Additionally, each year the event pays tribute to a select group of individuals whose work in Hollywood has left a lasting impact on film. Previously announced legendary leading man Billy Dee Williams will introduce his films Lady Sings the Blues (1972) and The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings (1976) and Academy Award-winning makeup artist Lois Burwell will appear with her films Almost Famous (2000) and Lincoln (2012). Both tributees will also sit down with a TCM host for a conversation in Club TCM located in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.

Passes for the 15th annual TCM Classic Film Festival are still available, but are selling quickly. It takes place in Hollywood April 18-21, 2024.
