Sony Pictures Entertainment ready to celebrate Columbia Pictures’ centenary

Sony Pictures Entertainment has unveiled the centennial logo for Columbia Pictures, ahead of its 100th year anniversary on 10 January 2024.

The timeless form of the Columbia Pictures historic ‘Lady with the Torch’ iconography inspired the 100th year logo design.

An enhanced glow to the torch symbolises the celebration of a vibrant 100 years of Columbia Pictures’ rich history, which grew from humble beginnings to become one of the leading film studios, renowned for producing award-winning and trailblazing films that boldly reflected societal issues of the times.

With the highest number of Academy Award Best Pictures wins, Columbia Pictures has entertained audiences for 10 decades and continues to create cultural impact to this day.

“There is one thing that separates a major studio from all other content producers: history,” commented Tom Rothman, chairman and ceo at Sony Pictures’ Motion Picture Group. “At Columbia, that history is reflected in the countless cultural talismans created by thousands of people over now 100 years. All of us at Columbia are proud of that legacy and honoured to celebrate it.”

In honour of the anniversary, luxury publisher Assouline will release a commemorative book highlighting 100 iconic moments of Columbia Pictures. In addition, the studio will host festival screenings, live concerts of prominent film scores and debut curated home entertainment products celebrating the scope of the studio’s library.

Key films in the catalogue include From Here to Eternity, Lawrence of Arabia, Funny Girl, Taxi Driver, The Karate Kid, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Men In Black, Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, A League of Their Own, Jumanji, Little Women and Spider-Man among others.

Additional details regarding the 100 year anniversary celebration will be revealed throughout the year.
