TCM Celebrates 100th Anniversary of Columbia Pictures With Month-Long Marathon of Classic Films





Turner Classic Movies will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Columbia Pictures with a marathon of films from the studio’s historic archive hosted by film critic Ben Mankiewicz starting January 3.

The month-long celebration highlights the best of Columbia Pictures studio’s films featuring a different decade every Wednesday. Audiences can catch movies from the 1920s and 1930s, such as It Happened One Night, through the 2000s films, including Marie Antoinette.

The Columbia Pictures marathon starts on January 3 at 8:00 p.m. ET, ahead of Columbia Pictures’ 100th anniversary on January 10. The studio revealed a new centennial logo, giving the famed Lady With the Torch a fresh look with an enhanced glow highlighting the classic films, such as Lawrence of Arabia and Funny Girl, created over the last century. 

“There is one thing that separates a major studio from all other content producers: history,” said Tom Rothman, chairman and chief executive officer of Sony Pictures’ Motion Picture Group. “At Columbia, that history is reflected in the countless cultural talismans created by thousands of people over now 100 years. All of us at Columbia are proud of that legacy and honored to celebrate it.”
