Plan to come to the Egyptian Theatre for a special Halloween showing of the movie, Edward Scissorhands this Tuesday, October 31st at 7:00 PM. Watch the official movie trailer at the bottom of this article~

A scientist (Vincent Price) builds an animated human being — the gentle Edward (Johnny Depp). The scientist dies before he can finish assembling Edward, though, leaving the young man with a freakish appearance accentuated by the scissor blades he has instead of hands. Loving suburban saleswoman Peg (Dianne Wiest) discovers Edward and takes him home, where he falls for Peg’s teen daughter (Winona Ryder). However, despite his kindness and artistic talent, Edward’s hands make him an outcast.

The movie is rated PG-13. Tickets are $8 each or $6 for seniors and students. The Egyptian Theatre is located at 135 N. 2nd Street in downtown DeKalb. Purchase tickets online here.
