It’s October and it’s showtime for the biggest name in laughter from the hereafter, Beetlejuice (or Betelgeuse if you want to be all proper about it). Jump in the line at the Sugar Club on October 15th and re-live this undying Gothic masterpiece from director Tim Burton’s heyday.

Don’t be alone, don’t be utterly alone, join Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis and Winona Ryder as they take on the afterlife, the living, the ghost with the most, and the sculptures of Delia Deetz.

In the surreal, wonderfully cartoon-like comedy Beetlejuice, a childless couple, Barbara and Adam, move to the country only to be killed in a car accident while passing over a quaint covered bridge. Their ghosts return to their beloved Victorian home, and find the Handbook for the Recently Deceased, which not only lets them know they’re dead, but comes in handy when they learn that they can continue to live in their house, even though a new family—from the land of the living—is moving in.

The new owners, fresh from the city, are quite a strange group themselves, and include the overpowering hipster mom Delia, her pompous SoHo interior designer Otho, her meek husband Charles, and their morose teenage daughter Lydia, who befriends the ghostly couple. Though the threesome attempt to scare Delia from ruining the house with redecoration and her unpleasant personality, their attempts fail. As a last resort, they call upon the services of the demented, terrifying, but hilarious “bioexorcist,” “Beetlejuice”.

Be strange and unusual. Munch on Halloween treats served by our grotesque usherettes. Enjoy a glass of Beetle juice but don’t say it thrice and toast the here-after with the ghost with the most. After the screening, stick around and “Shake Senora” on the dance floor to your favourite blood-curdling Halloween anthems.
