Special advance screening — one show only!

From creative genius Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland, The Nightmare Before Christmas) comes Frankenweenie, a new stop-motion homage to classic horror flicks.

After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor Frankenstein harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life – with just a few minor adjustments. Though Victor tries to keep his home-sewn creation under wraps, the entire town soon discovers that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous. The film is based on Burton’s 1984 live action short of the same name and features over 200 puppets and sets, plus the voices of Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, Conchata Ferrell and Winona Ryder. Recommended Ages 8+
