Haunt along with the ghost with the most during this limited-engagement 30th Anniversary celebration. Un-live all the undead fun with DAY-O conga lines, spooky props galore and all kinds of fun for the Recently Deceased.
BEETLEJUICE is the timeless tale of… a ghostly couple and the troublesome “bio-exorcist” they employ to help scare away the living. It’s mega-watt Michael Keaton at his kookiest, Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis at their dreamiest, and vintage Tim Burton from start to finish.
So join your spirited pals at Alamo Drafthouse for an all-new show featuring conga lines around the theater during the big songs and all sorts of props to use throughout the movie! Just follow the instructions in your Handbook for the Recently Deceased and everything will work out perfectly.
Vehicles will be adorned for your amusement while happy decorators hand out sweets.
And don’t forget to vote for your favorite!
This event is free, but we will be accepting donations to the church’s Winter Bags project to provide meals for local children while on winter break from school.
Please arrive on time as this event typically wraps up by 7:15pm. Plenty of parking is available.
