Start your Halloween festivities early at the Playhouse as we screen the Tim Burton Oscar winning classic, Beetlejuice, starring Michael Keaton, Friday evening, October 27th at 9:00pm!
Set in the New England town of Winter River, Connecticut, Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin play the Matilands, newlyweds who depart in a car accident. Once they realize they are ghosts, they then find out that their home has been sold to the Deetz family, played by Catherine O’ Hara, Jeffrey Jones, and Winona Ryder. Thanks to the ‘Handbook for the Recently Deceased,’ the Maitlands visit their afterlife case worker, who tells them they are stuck in their house unless they can scare the new inhabitants out of their home. They hire Betelgeuse (Michael Keaton), the “afterlife’s leading bio-exorcist” to help them.
“Brilliantly bizzare…Beetlejuice offers some of Michael Keaton’s most delicious manic work and creepy, funny fun…” (rottentomatoes.com). “Driven by director Tim Burton and his fanciful imagination, the film is colorful, delightfully deranged, and endlessly inventive…” (hollywoodreporter.com).
This film is recommended for ages 13+ by Common Sense Media, a nonprofit that publishes independent ratings and reviews.
