Spike Lee, Dustin Hoffman, Alec Baldwin to appear to TCM Classic Film Festival

 TCM Classic Film Festival is set to return to Hollywood from Thursday, March 26 – Sunday, March 29, 2015. In addition to previously announced celebrities expected to attend, including Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, Ann-Margaret, the festival has added Hollywood heavyweights Spike Lee, Dustin Hoffman and Alec Baldwin to the line up. Over four days and nights, attendees will be treated to an extensive lineup of great movies, appearances by legendary stars and filmmakers, fascinating presentations and panel discussions, special events and more.

The theme for the 2015 TCM Classic Film Festival will be History According to Hollywood:

The Old West. Medieval England. Ancient Rome. Hollywood has found endless inspiration in re-creating historical moments and bringing to life the heroes and villains of the past, creating a form of time travel for audiences through the ages and around the world. These films, however, are not always true to the historical record. Filmmakers have often created works about the past that are a reflection of the period in which they were made, or change facts to suit a particular storyline. The 2015 TCM Classic Film Festival will explore how cinema has shaped how we view – and remember – history.

Robert Osborne and Ben Mankiewicz both return as hosts. Screenings and events during the festival will be held at the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX, the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres and the Egyptian Theatre, as well as other Hollywood venues. 

Some featured movies are:

Malcolm X (1992) – Featuring an appearance by director Spike Lee
