It’s Showtime! as CALS Ron Robinson Theater shows BEETLEJUICE tonight

Beetlejuice PosterThe CALS Ron Robinson Theater is scaring up some fun as they show Tim Burton’s 1988 comedy Beetlejuice tonight, October 18.

What’s a couple of stay-at-home ghosts to do when their beloved home is taken over by trendy yuppies? They call on Beetlejuice, the afterlife’s freelance bio-exorcist to scare off the family – and everyone gets more than she, he or it bargains for!

Tim Burton guides this 1988 comedy “monsterpiece” whose stars include Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis and Winona Ryder, with Michael Keaton as Beetlejuice, the ghost with the most who flings one-liners, spins into grotesque forms, gobbles insects, and who just can’t leave the ladies (living or dead) alone. Also in the cast are Catherine O’Hara, Sylvia Sidney, Robert Goulet, and Dick Cavatt.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Film starts at 7:00 p.m. Beer, wine, and concessions will be available!

Have late night fun with BEETLEJUICE at 10pm tonight at the Ron Robinson Theater

RRT BeetleBefore he was Birdman, Michael Keaton was Beetlejuice (or technically Betelgeuse).  Tonight the CALS Ron Robinson Theater gives you the opportunity to again experience this film on the big screen.

In the 1988 Tim Burton comedy, Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis star as a pair of recently deceased homeowners who contract the services of a “bio-exorcist” played by Keaton in order to remove the obnoxious new owners of their house.  Jeffery Jones and Catherine O’Hara play the homeowners and Wynona Ryder stars as their sympathetic daughter.  The cast also includes Glenn Shadix, Robert Goulet, Susan Kellerman and Dick Cavett.

Earlier this week, plans for a sequel with Ryder were confirmed.

Beetlejuice starts at 10pm.  Admission is $5, and refreshments will be available for purchase.
