About the event
A second screening added as part of The Dome Spotlight Screening.
This Halloween classic, directed by Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands and A Nightmare Before Christmas) follows recently-deceased couple (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) as they learn the rules of the afterlife and prepare for their mandatory haunting of their marital home. When an annoying yuppie couple move in, along with their goth daughter Lydia (Winona Ryder), the Maitlands prove ineffective in scaring them out. Lacking experience in the scare department, they hire the ‘ghost with the most’, Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton) – a 'bio exorcist' and specialist spooker. Lydia's presence complicates matters as she forms an unlikely friendship with the Maitlands, while also finding her teenage self the target of Beetlejuice's lecherous intentions. The wild effects (a mix of in-camera trickery and stop-motion animation) were BAFTA nominated, while the film’s make-up artists won the 1989 Oscar.
