Special Activity free screening of Pee-Wee's
Big Adventure (1985)

This month we have a fun special activity event:  free screening of
Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (1985)!  This movie is being shown as part of
Hillsdale Library Summer Movie Festival.

Pee-Wee's Big Adventure:  Co-written by Paul Reubens and Phil Hartman,
Pee Wee's Big Adventure marks the debut of director Tim Burton, who
stamps the entire film with his quirky trademark style. The premise: Pee Wee
(Reubens), an overgrown pre-pubescent boy sporting a molded Princeton
cut, blush, lipstick, and a shrunken gray flannel suit, lives an idyllic life in his
bizarre home (some have compared the remarkable set design to the
expressionistic The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) until someone nabs his most
prized possession: a fire engine-red customized bicycle. He then embarks
on an epic cross-country search to find his lost love, not to mention more
than a little adventure.

When:  Monday, June 26, 2017
Time:  7:00pm
Where:  Hillsdale Library viewing room
509 Hillsdale Avenue, Hillsdale, NJ
