by Neil Cole

Various Studio Movie Grill locations throughout the Dallas, TX area will feature screenings of the classic 1978 blockbuster "Superman: The Movie" on Wednesday, August 9th.

One of the most well-regarded superhero films of all time, Superman was a box-office smash when it rocketed to Earth in 1978. The last son of the dead planet Krypton, Kal-El (Christopher Reeve) is found as a baby by Jonathan (Glenn Ford) and Martha Kent (Phyllis Thaxter) when his spaceship crashes just outside of Smallville, USA. Given the name "Clark" by his adopted parents, the boy grows up strong in the American heartland, developing amazing powers under the light of the yellow sun. One day, Clark finds a glowing crystal, and with it finds out about his alien heritage, the knowledge imparted to him by his birth father, Jor-El (Marlon Brando). The boy becomes a man, and moves to Metropolis to work for the Daily Planet newspaper, finding love in Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) and danger in the form of criminal genius Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman).

The Studio Movie Grill locations and screening times of the film are as follows: Northwest Highway Venue - 7:10PM, Central Expressway Venue - 7:15PM, and Spring Valley Venue - 7:45PM.

Tickets for all three "Superman: The Movie" screenings are $5.00 for all ages. For more information or to purchase tickets on-line, please visit Fandango.com.
