If you don’t want to fork over the nominal $6 admission charge for the 7:30 p.m. show of Edward Scissorhands this Friday, November 20 at the Ulster Performing Arts Center in Kingston, all you need to do is dress as a Misunderstood Creature, like Johnny Depp’s well-meaning-but-hazardous title character. That challenge should get some imaginations going!
Made in 1990 and widely regarded as one of the best films in the weird oeuvre of director Tim Burton, Edward Scissorhands was Depp’s first big-screen lead role. Also in the cast are Vincent Price, Winona Ryder, Dianne Wiest and Anthony Michael Hall. It’s a strange, funny and touching movie, and you get to check out all the cool costumes at this screening as well!
Tickets can be purchased at the UPAC box office at 601 Broadway in Kingston, (845) 339-6088, or through Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000 or www.ticketmaster.com. For more info, visit www.bardavon.org.
