'Smokey and the Bandit' to return to theaters as a tribute to Burt Reynolds

To honor the memory of the recently deceased Burt Reynolds, Smokey and the Bandit is headed back to the big screen.

According to Variety, the 1977 hit flick will show in 240 AMC theatres for nine days from September 12 to 20.

As a child of the '70s with a real love for American trucker culture, I'll be at one of those shows.
