The classic will be showing in theaters across the country Aug. 9 and Aug. 12 as part of the TCM Big Screen Classics series presented by Fathom Events.

If you’re not familiar, “Babe is the inspirational story of a shy Yorkshire piglet who doesn’t quite know his place in the world,” according to the Fathom Events description. “But when Farmer Hoggett wins him at the county fair, Babe discovers that he can be anything he wants to be with the help of his barnyard friends.”

The movie is a fun-filled tale the whole family will love. Babe is the truly the pig of all pigs!
