Friday 2nd August 2019

It’s showtime!

Price: £12 Full; £10 Concession
Double Bill ticket deal: £20


Dir: Tim Burton (USA, 1988, 92 mins)
Certificate: 15

Strictly 15 yrs +.

Enter the brilliantly bizarre world of the undead as we bring Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice to Beware the Moon.

The spirits of a recently deceased couple are harassed by an unbearable family that has moved into their beloved home.  In a bid to oust them they hire a malicious spirit – Michael Keaton’s ghost with the most – to drive them out and what creepier setting than the gothic backdrop of the castle ruins!

Beware the Moon

The screening is a part of our instalment of yearly film events, Beware the Moon, in partnership with Flatpack Projects, that turns Dudley Castle into an open air cinema for your delight and enjoyment.  There will be hot food, a licensed bar, mood-lighting, and as always a surprise or two thrown in for good measure.  Don’t forget to bring along a chair and/or a blanket.

Beetlejuice is one half of a Dudley Castle Double Bill – we’ll be screening The Blair Witch Project on Saturday 3rd August, and you purchase tickets for both films (at a bargain price of £20 for both nights) by calling us on 01384 215313.
