A Hollywood classic returns to the big screen in the 561 Wednesday.

Sunset Boulevard will play at more than 600 theaters nationwide, including six theaters in West Palm Beach and the Palm Beach County area.

Showtimes are at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. as part of the ongoing TCM Big Screen Classics series.

Among the theaters in the area playing Sunset Boulevard are the Shadowood 16, the Palace 21, and the Boynton Beach 14.

The classic directed by Billy Wilder and starring Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond, is a remarkably still relevant look at ageism, gender politics and the obsessive desire for fame.

The special big-screen presentation of Sunset Boulevard will be accompanied by pre-and post-film commentary by TCM Primetime host Ben Mankiewicz.
