Kiddie Matinee: The Nightmare Before Christmas
December 9, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The New Beverly screens Tim Burton's stop-motion Christmas classic, directed by Henry Selick. From the theatre website:
A delightfully ghoulish stop motion stunner, Tim Burton’s spellbinding musical fairy tale is a feast for the imagination. When Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween, stumbles across the festive delights of Christmas, he decides he must escape his same spooky routine and make the Yuletide his own. But his merry mischief causes more mayhem than magic, proving our skeletal star still has much to learn about the true meaning of the holiday. Director Henry Selick crams exquisite detail into every inch of the frame, crafting a visual milestone that continues to amaze 25 years later. Danny Elfman provides the Grammy-nominated tunes, as well as the singing voice of Jack.
DIRECTOR: Henry Selick
RUNNING TIME: 76 minutes
