See 'Beetlejuice' Under the Stars in NYC

In the mood for something strange and unusual? Tim Burton's wonderfully weird picture will be screened tonight at Tribeca Drive-In®, complete with a costume contest and audience member Beetlejuice makeover.

For the second night of Tribeca Drive-In®, co-sponsored by AT&T and JetBlue, we invite you to pull out those black and white striped tights, practice your mambo moves, and settle in for Tim Burton's Beetlejuice. The comedic goth romp stars Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin as two newbie ghosts that refuse to leave their old house, and call on "bio-exorcist" Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton) to get rid of the family that just moved in. Complicating matters is the presence of Lydia (Winona Ryder), the family's teenage daughter, who uncovers their plot.

The screening, hosted by Brookfield Place (World Financial Center Plaza), will have a slew of activities for true Burton fans to enjoy. The fun starts at 6PM so make sure to come early to participate in a Tim Burton-inspired costume contest (we tip our cap to anyone that wants to dress up like this guy) and the winners will get some great prizes.

Don't have time to pull a costume together? Don't worry. We'll have special effects makeup master Lance Anderson on hand to pluck one lucky audience member out to recieve a full Beetlejuice makeover before the show. With plenty more surprises in store, the movie starts at sundown so don't be late!
