'Alice,' 'Pee-wee' among pics to show outdoors
The Tim Burton exhibit at LACMA just got a little bit cooler — beginning Friday, LACMA will hold weekly outdoor screenings of Burton pics “The Corpse Bride,” “James and the Giant Peach,” “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” and “Alice in Wonderland.”Screenings complement the already popular and expansive Tim Burton art exhibit that serves as a retrospective on the helmer’s art work going back all the way to his childhood. The exhibit has drawn more than 130,000 visitors since its May opening and sells out each weekend. Foot traffic through the Burton exhibit averages more than 3,000 patrons each day. A costume contest and gala are in the works for the exhibit’s Halloween finale. LACMA hopes to accommodate all visitors during the final months of the exhibit and plans to keep it open from 11 a.m. Oct. 30 through midnight Halloween. Free August screenings are held at LACMA-adjacent Hancock Park every Friday at 8 p.m. More information on LACMA, the Tim Burton exhibit and ticket info can be found at lacma.org.
