It’s been 35 years since the Autobots defeated Unicron and saved their home planet, Cybertron. And pretty soon, fans will be able to experience their victory on the big screen once again. Via CBR), Fathom Events is bringing The Transformers: The Movie back to theaters for two nights in September.

The film originally premiered in 1986 and featured most of the voice cast from the animated series reprising their roles. It also notably featured the last onscreen performances of Orson Welles (Unicron) and Scatman Cruthers (Jazz). Earlier this year, Shout! Factory announced that it was releasing a new 4K remaster of the movie in a limited edition SteelBook case, which hits stores next month.
