On October 22-23, The Mahoning Drive-In Theater gets in the Haloweenie spirit with The Weird World Of Tim Burton, two nights of darkly delicious delves into demented dreamlands!
On Friday night, we get snippy with EDWARD SCISSORHANDS (1990), in which Johnny Depp plays a mechanical man from a dreary world who comes face to face with sunny suburbia, in a heartwarming, hairstyling, visually stunning comedy.
Then, sharpen your scythe and beware the sound of the sinister gallop as the Headless Horseman stalks SLEEPY HOLLOW (1999), with only Johnny Depp as an intrepid investigator standing between the townsfolk and a barbaric beheader.
Saturday begins with a nightmare….of holiday cheer and chills! Henry Selick’s classic stop-motion animated adventure THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS (1993), written and produced by Tim Burton, weaves Christmas and Halloween together into a musical fantasy family favorite sure to give goosebumps, be it from fright or frost, with a musical score and lead performance by Danny Elfman. *Incredibly Rare 35mm screening!
The night concludes in grandly ghoulish style with Michael Keaton in BEETLEJUICE (1988), the horror comedy classic that reintroduced the world to “The Banana Boat Song” and teaches the valuable lesson, when your house is haunted, maybe calling another ghost in to fix things isn’t the best idea.
All films screen on 35mm, with Tim Burton previews each night.
