Pee-wee’s Big Adventure

Opens on July 4

Director: Tim Burton Run Time: 91 min. Format: 35mm Film Release Year: 1985

Starring: Diane Salinger, Elizabeth Daily, Mark Holton, Paul Reubens

Tim Burton’s madcap feature debut is a timeless love story between a man and his closest companion… his fire-engine red bicycle. All is bliss in Pee Wee’s delightfully warped wonderland until his nearest and dearest is snatched by a nasty villain. Ever faithful, our bow-tie-sporting hero embarks on an epic journey in search of his beloved.

N.B. If you are looking for our annual Fourth of July screenings of Jaws, we aren’t able to offer them this year as the film is being prepped for a major rerelease in the fall.

Please Note: As of April 20, The Brattle will no longer require proof of vaccination/negative test result to attend our events, however masks are still required except when actively eating or drinking. Please visit the Covid Response page for complete details.
