Prepare to get your nostalgia on. Eight films, including “Psycho” and a “Grease” sing-a-long, are returning to theaters later this year as part of the “TCM Presents” series, a partnership between Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies with several major studios.

“Double Indemnity,” “Roman Holiday,” “Miracle on 34th Street” and a double feature of the English and Spanish-language versions of “Dracula” join the previously announced “Jaws” to round out the schedule of classics.

“The series allows us to bring fans another opportunity to engage with classic movies on the bigscreen from a variety of studios and eras in a way that aligns with our network’s mission to show films the way they were meant to be seen,” said Jennifer Dorian, general manager of Turner Classic Movies.

The trend to re-release classic films is consistent with Fox’s plans to stage a live broadcast of “Grease” in 2016 and with A&E’s “Psycho”-based TV series, “Bates Motel.” Earlier this year, Fathom Events and TCM partnered to screen “The Wizard of Oz,” “Rear Window” and “The Sound of Music.”

The films will bow in nearly 500 theaters across the U.S. Tickets are available on the Fathom Events website.

Complete list of dates:
“Jaws” — June 21, 24
“Double Indemnity” — July 19, 20
“Grease” — Aug. 16, 19
“Psycho” — Sept. 20, 23
“Dracula”/Spanish “Dracula” — Oct. 25, 28
“Roman Holiday” — Nov. 29, Dec. 1
“Miracle on 34th Street” — Dec. 20, 23
