YOU HATE ‘EM RIGHT?
I HATE ‘EM MYSELF!
It’s true that the Maitlands and myself share a similar vehicle, that Winona Ryder is at her gothic hottest, and Tim Burton is at the peak of his creative career when speaking of ‘Beetlejuice‘. Mr. Burton was killing it in the late ’80s/early ’90s with his ingenuity and original characters. He was pumping out inventive films (Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure) with a fresh style. Add Danny Elfman (Oingo Boingo) to the mix and you have cinematic gold.
‘Beetlejuice’ is one of those films that paved the existence for a generation who saw it at a young age and set that group apart from the demographic who had horrible taste in movies and music. A film so powerful that it transcends into the hipper kids of future generations. It was new, unique, and independent…like the first time you heard your favorite band. It was important, you experienced it, It was yours. The echoes of the past still resonate strong when the opening sequence brightens a screen and you know the large spider is about to be scooped up by Alec Baldwin.
So, on Friday, November 1st, 2013 at 9:15pm at Naro Cinemas (map), your good friends at AltDaily are presenting ‘Beetlejuice’ on the big screen. As always, we will have a bar with alcoholic refreshments, costume contests, and several prizes to win. Click here to RSVP to the Facebook Event.
