Avon Theatre Film Center HostsCult Classics: Beetlejuice (1988)

02/24/2015

272 Bedford St., Stamford, CT 06901. Phone: 203-967-3660.

Avon Theatre Film Center hosts Cult Classics: BEETLEJUICE (1988) on Tuesday February 24, 2015 -8:30PM. Directed By: Tim Burton. Starring: Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder.Thanks to the carelessness of a cute little dog, newlyweds Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin are killed in a freak auto accident. Upon arriving in the outer offices of Heaven, the couple finds that, thanks to a century's worth of bureaucratic red tape, they're on a long celestial waiting list. Before they can earn their wings, Davis and Baldwin must occupy their old house as ghosts for the next fifty years. Alas, the house is now owned by insufferable yuppies Catherine O'Hara and Jeffrey Jones. Horrified at the prospect of sharing space with these obnoxious interlopers, Davis and Baldwin do their best to scare O'Hara and Jones away, but their house-haunting skills are pathetic at best. In desperation, the ghostly couple engage the services of a veteran scaremeister: a yellow-haired, snaggle-toothed, profane, flatulent "gonzo" spirit named Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton). The problem: Beetlejuice cannot be trusted-especially when he falls in love with O'Hara and Jones' gloomy, black-clad teenaged daughter Winona Ryder.
