Event Details

Consider this timeline: Tim Burton makes Pee-wee’s Big Adventure in 1985 to huge financial success. As a result, Warner Bros. is willing to pay him to develop a script for his next movie, but isn’t quite ready to green-light its production, so he takes a job directing Beetlejuice. In the process he gets Michael Keaton to play the title role, who he would eventually also put in the famous Batman cape and cowl. So from 1985 to 1990, Tim Burton makes Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, Beetlejuice, Batman and Edward Scissorhands. That’s maybe the weirdest run of four enormously successful movies in a row ever. And Beetlejuice is the first time we see Tim Burton fully being himself – full of his weird, spindly horror designs, perfectly cast and dripping with his particular sense of humor, Beetlejuice immediately found its way into audiences’ hearts. There’s everything to love about this dark, hilarious afterlife comedy.
