Description

SATURDAY DECEMBER 21 *Double Feature* THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS 3:00, 7:00 Producer Tim Burton’s warped holiday fantasy about Pumpkin King Jack Skellington who wants to remake Christmas in his own image, with help from the other residents of Halloween Town. Directory Henry Selick and his team of 120 conventional stop-motion animators spent years bringing this wonderfully weird tale to life. Featuring a baroque song score by Danny Elfman; sung by the voices of Elfman, Catherine O’Hara, and Paul Reubens. (1993, 76 min, DCP ) + BATMAN RETURNS 4:30, 8:30 Michael Keaton’s second outing as the Dark Knight Detective finds him battling for the soul of Gotham City against a trio of villains: businessman Max Schreck (Christopher Walken); the grotesque Penguin (Danny DeVito); and the deadly Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer). Given free creative reign to exercise his spookily whimsical visual and dramatic ideas, director Tim Burton created his most personal opus yet. (1992, 126 min, 35mm)
