It’s Showtime! Put down your Handbook for the Recently Deceased and get ready to celebrate the spookiest holiday of the year with the ghost with the most, that bonkers bio-exorcist, Beetlejuice! Let Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder take you on a deliciously demented trip into the Afterlife at this special Halloween season screening of Tim Burton’s comedy classic! We’ve got prizes for the best costumes and ghoulish props for you to use during the movie, so just say his name three times and let’s party!
A deliriously off-the-wall, fast-paced horror/comedy, Beetlejuice was Tim Burton’s second feature – and it not only defined his signature mix of wild imagination, sweetly fractured characters, surreal sensibility, gothic whimsy and dazzling special effects, but also firmly established him as one of the most original movie makers of our time. Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin play a young married couple who are killed in a car accident but are stuck haunting this world before they can move on to the next. When an obnoxious yuppie couple (Catherine O’Hara and Jeffery Jones), and their unhappy, Goth-obsessed daughter (Winona Ryder, in her breakout movie role) move in to their old home, the ghostly duo tries every trick in the afterlife playbook to frighten them away. But when their fledgling haunting skills prove less than effective, the two turn in desperation to a veteran spook: a profane, malevolent, thoroughly gonzo spirit named Beetlejuice, played to over-the-top perfection by Michael Keaton. And that’s when things really get weird, as Burton’s signature style of macabre comedy goes into maximum overdrive! (Dir. by Tim Burton, 1988, USA, 92 min., Rated PG)
