It's been 35 years since Tim Burton's Pee-wee's Big Adventure hit theaters. To celebrate, masterful comic Paul Reubens, the actor behind the timeless Pee-wee Herman, will hit the road for a twenty-city tour, discussing all the stories behind the film.
The movie, which is surprisingly terrifying for children's fare, was Tim Burton's theatrical debut and the first major project of composer Danny Elfman.
The tour starts February 14 in Portland, Oregon, and wraps March 29 in Washington, D.C. The Denver screening and talk are at 7:30 p.m. Friday, February 21, at the Paramount Theatre.
