Chariots of Fire will return to UK cinemas in July to coincide with the London Olympics.
The Oscar-winning sports film has been digitally remastered, and will receive a premiere held simultaneously at London's Leicester Square, Edinburgh's iconic Festival Theatre and various other locations.
"Chariots of Fire is about guts, determination and belief. Just as the film succeeded in raising spirits and aspirations 30 years ago, I believe it could deliver exactly the same message today," said producer Lord Puttnam.
"At the heart of the film is the quest for Olympic glory, and I find it hard to imagine anything more likely to resonate throughout the country this summer."
Chariots of Fire, inspired by true events, tells the story of two runners competing in the 1924 Paris Olympics for very different reasons. Eric Liddell is a devout Christian who believes his abilities are a gift from god, while Harold Abrahams is out to prove to his peers that Jewish people are not inferior.
Director Hugh Hudson said: "May the energy, the Liddell spirit and the simple joy of running that exist in Chariots of Fire inspire performers and spectators alike in this London Olympic year."
Chariots of Fire returns to British theatres on July 13.
