Luc Besson's visual adventure, The Fifth Element, opened in theaters on May 9, 1997, and it's returning to theaters in May! The Fifth Element 20th Anniversary is a special two-day engagement presented by Fathom Events and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Moviegoers will be able to enjoy a 4K restoration of the movie and get an exclusive look at Besson's upcoming movie, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which is coming to theaters in July.

You can find out where and when the 20th anniversary event is happening by going to the Showtimes page for The Fifth Element 20th Anniversary. Some theaters are playing it under the original movie's entry, so be sure to check that Showtimes page as well. You'll want to confirm with the theater that they will have the restored copy and will be playing the "Valerian" clip, if that's important to you.

In The Fifth Element, Bruce Willis plays Korben Dallas, a cab driver in 23rd century New York City who discovers that the fate of the world is contained within the mysterious Leeloo (Milla Jovovich), who literally drops from the sky and into his life. To save humanity, he must protect her from the evil industrialist Zorg (Gary Oldman), who is embroiled in an intergalactic war between the Mondoshawans and the Mangalores.

If you can't get to one of the theaters playing the movie, you can still enjoy the new 4K restoration by buying the upcoming 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc that is due in stores on July 11th. We don't have any pre-order information yet, so stay tuned for more details!
