Join us for Maude Kerns Art Center’s Movies @ Maude’s on Saturday, December 16th, at 5 pm for a showing of Tim Burton’s 1990 film Edward Scissorhands, the featured movie for December in the Art Center’s “Movies @ Maude’s” series on popular directors. Movies are typically shown on the last Saturday of every month and are free to the community with a suggested donation.
In Tim Burton’s beloved masterpiece Edward Scissorhands, Johnny Depp delivers the performance that launched his career, as Edward, an irresistibly charming creation with razor-sharp metal hands and a heart of gold. This modern day fairy tale tells the story of how Edward’s lonely life in a Gothic castle is forever changed when he meets a kindhearted Avon Lady (Dianne Wiest) who takes him to a paradise known as Suburbia.
Edward Scissorhands is 1h 45m and is rated PG-13.
Post Film Talk - After the film, stay for a short discussion about the film and director facilitated by Movies @ Maude’s host, Jalen Thompson, an interdisciplinary performance artist and film scholar who uses film, poetry, and music to explore black queer identity. He is currently completing his PhD in English at the University of Oregon.
