Pee-wee's Big Adventure

3:00pm Sunday, April 9

Ah, the 1980s. Maybe at the time the decade wasn’t as universally weird as it seems in retrospect, but it surely did usher in a new appreciation of weirdness. The success of Paul Reuben’s original Pee-Wee Herman HBO special, which was aimed at adult audiences, led to Warner Bros. asking him to write a script for a full length Pee-Wee movie in 1985, a year before the debut of the (enormously popular) network TV show for kids. This is that movie, a brilliant, bizarre road-trip flick set in a world without functional grown-ups, that catapulted the careers of Tim Burton and Danny Elfman and introduced us a totally original species of absurdist comedy that’s funny whatever your age.
