Past Event
Before director Tim Burton became lost in the beautiful abyss that is Johnny Depp's brown eyes, he came out swinging and connecting with his first two directorial features, Pee Wee's Big Adventure and Beetlejuice. The former went on to almost save network television from itself. The latter, screening at midnight this Friday and Saturday at the River Oaks theatre, wrote Burton's vision of the world across the back of our optical nerves forever, in broad pinstripes and googly-eyes. It features a hopped-up on sleaze Michael Keaton at his comic peak as the titular character, a fixer/scammer from the afterlife, as well as a hunky young Alec Baldwin, a fetching Geena Davis, Winona Ryder as a goth princess, a shrimp cocktail calypso number, and a hot, hot, hot supporting cast of ghouls, freaks, and soul-eating giant worms. This special Halloween screening threatens happy movie-goers with the prospect of props and conga lines.
