We’re officially at the halfway point between Halloween and Christmas. You know what that means, right? It’s time for A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS!
Henry Selick’s 1993 film, produced and co-written by Tim Burton, may have been a box office dud upon its original release but even the briefest of visits into a Hot Topic store will show that the film has finally found its audience. And how! A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is more popular than ever - from theatrical rereleases, tribute albums and merchandising up the wahoo. You've seen the film countless times but you've never seen it like this before!
From the wonderful music by Danny Elfman to the great gothic design from Burton, A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is a classic by all rights and we’re all too happy that the film has found a dedicated fanbase to celebrate the film. That’s why we’re throwing a mid-holiday monster mash with a special Action Pack currated screening of A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS Sing-Along.
Come to the Alamo Drafthouse – West Oaks on November 30 for a full night of fun, music and games. We’ve subtitled all the songs in the film so you can belt out “This Is Halloween” along with the film. In addition, we’ll have props to help you immerse yourself in the movie and a game or two to kick the night off.
A darkly comic musical, A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS tales the tale of Jack Skellington, a resident of Halloween Town who dreams of something different from the usual pumpkins and things that go bump in the night. After discovering Christmas Town, the focal point for all things wintery, Skellington decides he and his Halloween cohorts are going to take over Christmas. The result is one of the darkest (in a deliciously fun way) holiday movies ever released.
Don’t miss this Alamo-exclusive chance to celebrate one of the finest animated films of the ‘90s in the best way possible — in a theater full of fellow fans all singing along at the top of their voices to the songs we all know by heart and love. "What is this? What is this?"
