Help Pee-Wee Find His Bike Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli – PEE-WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE
“I know you are but what am I?”
PEE-WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE screens midnights this weekend (June 5th and 6th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.
The first film by Paul Ruebens, Tim Burton and the incomparable film composer Danny Elfman, PEE-WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE bubbles with the pure joy and exuberance of three talented people playing with a brand new toy. No film has ever been more fun to watch.When the pale man child known as Pee Wee Herman’s mechanical love ride is stolen by a bikenapper, a lot of quirk and circumstance follows as this cultural icon tries to rescue his two-wheeled best friend. This really is the most beautiful movie relationship between a man and an inanimate object (Tom Hanks and a volleyball comes in a close second). Things really get tense when Pee Wee pays a visit to main suspect – ferocious fatty, Francis. And what follows is the most intense swimming pool fight you will ever see. There’s a ghostly encounter with a Marge who is large and in charge, a daring escape from jealous jellyboy Andy and a train ride singalong with a sardine swallower. Then it’s off to the Alamo for the third act, and it’s the third act of this film that shows just how inspiring a figure Pee Wee really is. He shows that he can make the best of any situation when he turns a potential execution at the hands of the Satan’s Helpers into a glass-smashing biker bar dance. -SPOILERS- And just when you thought this tomfoolerific tale was over, there’s an incredible chase to top it all off! During this climax, Pee Wee dons none other than a nun costume, ruins a Japanese monster movie, liberates a pet store and doesn’t get a wrinkle in his impeccable grey suit in the process.
Now you can help him find his beloved bike when PEE-WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE screens at Sat The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.
Admission is $8. Hope to see everyone this weekend at The Tivoli! I’ll be there with trivia and prizes!
