35 mm!
PEE WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE
1985, Warner Bros., 90 min, USA, Dir: Tim Burton
The Eighties were precarious. If you weren’t careful you could be forced to feel sorry for the yuppie ratsticks in WALL STREET or find yourself actually rooting for egomaniacal Jerry Lewis to free himself in KING OF COMEDY. But the decade triumphantly launched PEE WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE, the movie that lionizes the 90lb weakling and propelled Tim Burton and Danny Elfman into the goth cinematic darkosphere. Part-caper, part-road movie PEE WEE is an homage inside a tour-de-france with every kitsch genre mined to full potential. The story of a lovable weirdling (Paul Reubens) who lives alone with just his beloved bicycle. When the bike gets stolen Pee Dub rightly suspects his bratty neighbor Francis (Mark Holton), but Francis has paid a thug to ditch the bike and the chase is on all the way to the basement of the Alamo. Drunken bikers, a ghostly lady trucker and Godzilla all show up with madcap consequences. EIGHTIES WARNING: this movie contains James Brolin being ironically hilarious. No one will be seated during Twisted Sister.

Podcast approximately 30 minutes. Feature begins at 8:00 PM
