Fathom Events has announced that they'll be bringing Coraline and Paranorman back to theaters for a limited time to celebrate the 15th anniversary of LAIKA Studios.

"Coraline and ParaNorman showcase the variety of content Fathom brings to audiences of all ages nationwide,” said Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt. “We’re excited to be working with LAIKA, to continue our partnerships with Shout! Factory and Park Circus, and look forward to bringing these two wonderful films to local theaters.

To make this momentous occasion even better, LAIKA has provided Fathom with exclusive bonus content that will take audiences behind the creative process for their pantheon of stop-motion-animated films. Take it from me, as someone who has visited LAIKA on two separate occasions for the making of The Boxtrolls and Missing Link, you won't want to miss this special presentation. LAIKA are masters of their craft, and their meticulous ways of making movie magic are truly something to behold. It does my animation-loving heart good to know that LAIKA is still in the game. They've been my favorite animation studio for the past 15 years, and I wish them nothing but the best now and forever.

“At Laika, we’ve made a promise to our fans to make movies that matter, said LAIKA chief marketing officer David Burke. We hope that revisiting the timeless worlds of Coraline Jones and Norman Babcock proves that we deliver on that vow.”

Tickets for Coraline will be available for purchase on Fathom Events' website as well as participating box offices beginning on July 16, while Paranorman tickets will be made available on August 13.
