Carol Burnett wants to celebrate her 87th birthday a little early and with her fans.

On April 22, four days before her big day, Fathom Events will bring "The Carol Burnett Show: Laugh All Night" to movie screens throughout the country. The program will consist of an introduction by Burnett, three of her favorite episodes and a behind-the-scenes featurette about the long-running variety hour.

Some of the classic sketches to be featured include "The Dentist," with series regulars Tim Conway and Harvey Korman; "The Attic," with guest star Betty White joining Burnett and Vicki Lawrence as Eunice and Mama; and “Went With the Wind,” a spoof of "Gone With the Wind." Attendees also will receive a commemorative limited-edition poster.
