Help us celebrate the life and work of Paul Reubens, aka Pee-wee Herman, by revisiting the wildly original not-quite-for-children's classic that launched not only his career but also those of director Tim Burton and composer Danny Elfman.

Two of the most original talents of their time, Pee-wee Herman and director Tim Burton, teamed on what was to be the major breakthrough in this riotously funny movie about Pee-wee's cross-country search for his stolen bike. As Pee-wee passes through the Alamo and Warner Bros. Studios, encountering bikers, cowboys, crooks and a phantom trucker, any resistance is futile: unstoppable laughter always follows. Celebrate the one-of-a-kind magic that this mirthful, colorful, bountiful movie still packs in abundance.

Family screening on Sunday, September 24. $7.50 for 12 and under.
