Fathom Events and CBS are releasing this 2 hour and 20 minute presentation of 5 uncut, full-length colorized episodes on Lucille Ball’s Birthday!

According to the Fathom Events website the 5 episodes to be featured are:

  • Lucy Does a TV Commercial: In this classic “I Love Lucy” episode, Lucy has angled her way onto Ricky’s special as the show’s pitch girl. Includes Newly Colorized Footage!
  • Job Switching: After Ricky and Fred get upset about the girls’ spending, Lucy and Ethel go to work in a candy factory while the boys do the housework.
  • L.A. at Last!: When the Ricardos and the Mertzes arrive in Hollywood, Lucy goes to the Brown Derby restaurant where her sighting of William Holden turns catastrophic.
  • The Million Dollar Idea: Lucy and Ethel go into business making salad dressing based on Lucy’s Aunt Martha’s recipe. Includes Newly Colorized Footage!
  • Pioneer Women: The girls revolt over housework and want modern conveniences. The boys bet that they can survive longer than the girls without using anything invented after 1900, including electricity. Includes Newly Colorized Footage!

Moviegoers will get to see a newly produced and never-before-seen featurette – REDHEAD TALES, all about the colorization of I Love Lucy. They will also receive an exclusive colored mini poster.

All of the showings are at 7 pm on Tuesday the 6th, with pre-order tickets averaging about $15 across different theater locations.
