HEAVY MIDNITES: Labyrinth

Journey into the fantastical world of Labyrinth, a wild, weird and wickedly whimsical wonderment so chock-full of outrageous puppets and gleeful creations that it could only spring from the infinitely inventive minds of Jim Henson, George Lucas and Monty Python’s Terry Jones. It’s one of the most magically memorable movies of the ‘80s and it’s gonna be one of Cinefamily’s greatest midnights! The iconic David Bowie (and his prodigious, uh, bulge) stars as Jareth the Goblin King, crooner and kidnapper and lord over a legion of goth muppets. But when he steals a baby boy, young Jennifer Connelly must rescue the tiny tot from a fairy tale where everything seems possible and nothing is as it seems. Featuring an unforgettable soundtrack that’ll have you singing along, gorgeous costumes and jaw-dropping creatures, puppetry and effects, Labyrinth is a ‘mazing tale of never-ending fantasy, a phantasmagorical delight of unbridled imagination that’s more fun than ever!
Dir. Jim Henson, 1986, 35mm, 101 min.
