To the living, let now the dead come alive. Welcome to a show about death! Meet Adam and Barbara Maitland. Happily married to each other, no kids, living in their dream home, till death do you part. But when death comes a calling, they remain trapped together in limbo in beloved earthly home. Meet the Deetz family. Exhausted New York real estate mogul Charles buys the vacant Maitland home in rural Pennsylvania. His wife Delia, an eccentric modern artist sees the home as a canvas for creative expression, while Charles’ daughter Lydia quietly struggles to adapt. With Delia’s bold modern decorating choices offending Barbara’s traditional country preferences, the Maitlands question how to chase the Deetz out. With no help from their bureaucratic Afterlife caseworker Juno, and failed attempts to spook Charles and Lydia, Adam and Barbara seek the help of the Afterlife’s leading freelance bio-exorcist. What’s his name? Well, he can’t tell you. But in order to summon him, you need to say it three times. Enter Beetlejuice, the rude, disgusting, manic-depressive ghost with the most. Or ghoul? Or maybe demon? A spirit whose effective haunting techniques are far beyond what Adam and Barbara had in mind. He sees an opportunity in Lydia that could spell danger for everyone in the home, living or dead. Live it to the fullest on November 27 as our ROCKY HORROR cast the Denton Delinquents transform the Kiggins into something right out of the mind of the film’s director Tim Burton, bringing the 2D afterlife to 3D life, performing right along with the movie while it plays! Say it once…Say it twice…Third times a charm…BEETLEJUICE, BEETLEJUICE, BEETLEJUICE! Please note: This movie was rated PG back in the 80s when two F-Bombs didn’t guarantee you an R rating! Parental discretion advised.

Early 1960s. Tulsa, Oklahoma. The city is divided between teenagers who have grown up with wealth and privilege and the rough-edged "greasers" from the wrong side of the tracks. The greasers yearn for the life they see on the other side of town, but the rich kids want to keep them in their places. Then, one greaser dares cross the line to talk, and to dream of more, with a girl from across the tracks . . . an action that can only lead to conflict on a hot, steamy night. Featuring Tom Cruise, Rob Lowe, Diane Lane, Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Emilio Estevez, C. Thomas Howell and Patrick Swayze, among others young actors who have since gone on to stardom. This two day screening event will feature the 4K Restored version of the film, as well as a special on-screen introduction to the film by Director Francis Ford Coppola. The 4K Restoration was created using the original film negative, maintaining the highest level of visual quality as possible. This is Director Coppola’s preferred version of the film; there are an additional 22 minutes of footage, it includes a beginning and ending more true to the book, as well as a rousing rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack.

Winter Starts Now is a “love letter” to that special place on the calendar – the winter season. It’s a call to action for all viewers—get stoked, be prepared, because the season so many live for is here. The 72nd annual ski and snowboard film from Warren Miller Entertainment will chase winter from coast to coast. From Alaska’s Prince William Sound, where the only fresh tracks encountered belong to bears, to Maine’s community of craftsmen and women devoted to sliding on snow. From kids with huge Olympic dreams to adaptive shredders who leave even the most able athletes in the dust. Viewers will road trip with big mountain skiers Marcus Caston and Connery Lundin as they chase winter all the way to Alaska, before catching up with speed riding legend JT Holmes, and meet new friends like Madison Rose and Vasu Sojitra. Winter Starts Now takes viewers on a journey to the highest peak in America, to the best groomed trails at beloved resorts, and to the mom & pop’s that have stood their ground throughout the ever-changing ski world. The film is an homage to every skier who lives for the thrill and finds solace on the chairlift. “If we learned anything from last year’s most unusual winter, it’s that skiing and snowboarding and life in the mountains provide a release and a reprieve and a reminder of what matters most,” said Micah Abrams, VP Content for Warren Miller Entertainment. “Every year, we celebrate that moment when you can see your breath and realize that you’re only a few weeks away from your first run of the year. For the seventy second year in a row, we’re pleased to announce, Winter Starts Now!
