We are Shirley serious when we say that approximately 150 AMC theaters across the country will be showing the movie that was originally released on July 2, 1980 and spoofed the airplane disaster movies that came before it.

"You won’t want to miss this!" said Robert J. Lenihan, president of programming at AMC. "We are pleased to partner with Paramount to offer guests the opportunity to relive this hilarious, PG-rated movie when it hits the big screen again."

There are only two showtimes:

Tickets are limited, so if you are interested, skip the fish for dinner, and order your tickets online now! AMC's web site is also mentioning that a limited number of commemorative full-sized posters will be available, but there aren't any details about how they will be distributed.

According to the press release from AMC, Airplane! grossed more than $83 million at the box office and was the fourth highest grossing movie in 1980. It was named to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress on Dec. 28, 2010 as one of 25 films that are "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant to American culture and to be preserved for all time.

If there aren't any theaters near you, Gift Shop merchant Amazon.com has the Airplane! (Don't Call Me Shirley! Edition) on DVD for $9.99 or you can rent it via Amazon Video on Demand for just $2.99 and relive all the great quotes and sight gags in the comfort of whatever space you call yours!
