“The Graduate” is returning to theaters 50 years after the classic film gave audiences something to titter about – college graduate Dustin Hoffman being seduced by an older woman and friend of his parents, before he falls in love with the woman’s daughter.

Besides Hoffman as Benjamin Braddock, the dramedy starred Anne Bancroft as Mrs. Robinson and Katharine Ross, who played her daughter Elaine, according to Entertainment Weekly.

“The Graduate” received seven Oscar nominations and has been credited for Hoffman’s early stardom.

Director Mike Nichols won an Academy Award for directing the film.

A restoration of the film is set to premiere on Saturday at Hollywood’s Grauman’s Chinese Theatre for the TCM Classic Film Festival, according to Rolling Stone magazine.

The film will be returning to the big screen in more than 700 theaters across the country on Sunday, April 23rd, and Wednesday, April 26th, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. local time.
