To celebrate The Matrix’s 20th anniversary, Dolby Cinemas and AMC Theatres will be showing the hit science fiction movie starting Aug. 30 for one week only in select theaters nationwide.

Directed by the Wachowskis, The Matrix is the first film of the Matrix trilogy, a cyberpunk dystopian series that centers around a future where most of humanity is unknowingly (and unwillingly) trapped inside a simulated reality, while their bodies are used as energy sources for machines. Within this simulated version of 1999, a hacker named Neo (Keanu Reeves) is contacted by the mysterious Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and made aware of the truth of his reality by Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), the leader of a group of freed human resistance fighters. Neo joins Morpheus, who believes him to be a prophesied Chosen One known as the One.

Dolby released a brief trailer for the event, with shots of the film interspersed with some new zingers. Such as:

“It’s been a while...” teases the green text on the black computer background. “20 years?”

Tickets are available for purchase on the AMC website.
