The Nightmare Before Christmas is postmodern three-ring circus of morbid humor, eye-popping puppet animation and show-stopping songs.” – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Why wait for December to celebrate the holidays? It’s Christmas in July when The Loft Cinema presents a super summer screening of the holiday classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas! This terrifically-twisted extravaganza from producer Tim Burton and director Henry Selick is a delectable witch’s brew of stop-motion animation, catchy tunes and seriously oddball imagination – a delight for the whole Addams Family! Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, longs to spread the joy of Christmas. But his merry mission puts Santa in jeopardy and creates a nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere! Can Christmas be saved? (Dir. by Henry Selick, 1993, USA, 76 mins., Rated PG)
