1. I was given just 40 admit-2 passes (80 tickets total) to distribute. They will go quickly.
2. These tickets do not guarantee you admittance to the movie or reserve you a seat. These pre-screenings are always overbooked. You must arrive and wait in line, with ticket in hand, ahead of time. If you do not arrive early, all the overbooked seats will be gone.
PG, animated comedy.
Official synopsis: From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.
A stop-motion animated film, “Frankenweenie” was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which elevates the classic style to a whole new experience.
Frankenweenie: An Electrifying Book is a free downloadable iBook at the Apple iBookstore. The fully interactive book integrates videos, vibrant music, and original sketches to offer readers a fully immersive behind-the-scenes look into the making of the movie.
Nerd note: This is Disney Publishing’s first project created with Apple’s iBooks Author software.
I downloaded this for Charlie and Eve and they were entranced! As well as thoroughly excited to see the “Halloween-y black and white movie.” They kept calling it The Nightmare Before Christmas Two, which cracked me up. You can never start the Tim Burton appreciation too early!
