About the Film:
Go ahead, say it three times: Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Congratulations, you just summoned the Michael Keaton/Tim Burton 1988 classic to The Little! As always, this Saturday Night Rewind screening features a 35mm print. Strutting into the theater in Beetlejuice's pinstripe suit is, surprisingly, encouraged.
Here's the basic plot (it's best to read this in Beetlejuice's voice): After Barbara (Geena Davis) and Adam Maitland (Alec Baldwin) die in a car accident, they find themselves stuck haunting their country residence, unable to leave the house. When the unbearable Deetzes (Catherine O'Hara, Jeffrey Jones) and teen daughter Lydia (Winona Ryder) buy the home, the Maitlands attempt to scare them away without success. Their efforts attract Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton), a rambunctious spirit whose "help" quickly becomes dangerous for the Maitlands and innocent Lydia.
Saturday Night Rewind is a monthly 35mm film series presented by the Little Theatre and Fright-Rags.
