“Beetlejuice” (1988) at the Cerrito, Thursday, October 13, at 9:30 p.m.

Halloween is just around the corner; time to take in director Tim Burton’s special brand of scariness at the Cerrito on Thursday, October 13 at 9:30 p.m.!

Barbara (Geena Davis) and Adam (Alec Baldwin) are a particularly charming couple, who love their life and their country home. But misfortune strikes when they die in a silly accident, and complications ensue.

They discover that they are now ghosts who still live in their country home, but it has been bought by an unbearable New York family, the Deetzes, with big remodeling plans. The ghosts hire Beetlejuice, played by Michael Keaton who advertises himself as an exorcist, to get rid of the Deetzes…but instead, life gets weirder and weirder.

“Beetlejuice” plays once only on Thursday, October 13, at 9:30 p.m. All seats are $9.00. Moviegoers are strongly advised to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as many shows sell out.

“Purple Rain” (1984) at the Cerrito, Thursday, September 8, at 9:30 p.m.

Time to revisit Prince’s stunning movie debut at the Cerrito on Thursday, September 8, at 9:30!

The world lost one of its brightest stars with the untimely passing of Prince this spring. Go back in time and experience his greatness once again. “Purple Rain” is loosely autobiographical. In it, the Kid (Prince) is on the rise with his band, The Revolution. He is trying to escape his tumultuous family life, navigate the club scene, and pursue a rocky relationship with the captivating singer, Apollonia.

And Prince’s music is at the heart of the movie! As the blog The Movie Sleuth states, the movie shows Prince at the top of his form; he had “blurred the lines between his own sexually charged funk, guitar rock, dance music, and the electronic instruments that were about to take the musical world by storm.”

“Purple Rain” plays once only on Thursday, September 8, at 9:30 p.m. All seats are $9.00. Moviegoers are strongly advised to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as many shows sell out. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.

“Stop Making Sense” (1984) at the Cerrito, Thursday, August 11, at 9:30 p.m.

Have the ultimate concert experience at the Cerrito on Thursday, August 11, at 9:30!

The pleasure of “Stop Making Sense” is in watching a band, The Talking Heads, led by David Byrne, perform at the top of its game. You could say the same thing about the director of the movie, Jonathan Demme, now known for such movies as “Married to the Mob,” “Philadelphia,” and “Silence of the Lambs.”

In “Stop Making Sense,” Demme created the ultimate classic concert film, when filming the “Talking Heads” performance at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood. Unlike earlier concert films, it’s all about the music and the players, not the faces in the crowd or what’s going on backstage. What you get is pure energy, bursting from the screen.

“Stop Making Sense” plays once only on Thursday, August 11, at 9:30 p.m. All seats are $9.00. Moviegoers are strongly urged to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as many shows sell out. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.
