LABYRINTH Sing-Along will give you a reason to dance, magic dance

 

This November we will be screening the LABYRINTH Sing-Along a total of three times. That’s three times the “Magic Dance,” three times the “As the World Falls Down” and three times the gigantic codpiece Bowie sports in his oh-too-tight pants. 

LABYRINTH Sing-Along will give you a reason to dance, magic dance

 

What do you get when you combine the talents of Jim Henson, George Lucas, Terry Jones and David Bowie? Something pretty dang great, of course. And LABYRINTH, the classic ‘80s musical, is as close to perfect as you get when it comes to movies featuring muppets, Jennifer Connelly and one of the largest codpieces ever used in the history of film.

David Bowie stars as Jareth the Goblin King, an only slightly creepy glam rock god who spends his time stealing babies and seducing 15-year-olds. Speaking of 15-year-olds, the very young Jennifer Connelly co-stars as Sarah Williams, a selfish wannabe princess whose cruel words doom her baby brother to a life  in the company of goblins — unless, that is, she can navigate a sprawling labyrinth and rescue him.

Along the way Sarah encounters all manner of creatures — both friends and foes. The most magical thing she encounters, though, is the film’s unbelievably catchy soundtrack. Take the best of Bowie, ring it through the mind of film composer Trevor Jones and sprinkle on some black tar pixie dust and you'll have a soundtrack that will grab you by the vocal chords and force you to sing along. Luckily, we’re here to help.

This November we will be screening the LABYRINTH Sing-Along a total of three times. That’s three times the “Magic Dance,” three times the “As the World Falls Down” and three times the gigantic codpiece Bowie sports in his oh-too-tight pants.

We’ll subtitle the songs for you on the screen so you can sing along with the music throughout the movie. In addition, you’ll get props, games and so much more — so show up early and pre-order your tickets online.

This is one event you won’t want to miss — because if you do, you’ll be haunted in your dreams by a giant white owl ... and honestly, do you really want David Bowie to watch you as you sleep?
