As part of their Get Reel film series and in celebration of San Antonio’s 300th anniversary, the McNay will screen the Tim Burton-directed movie al fresco for fans of all ages. Whether you’re someone who can repeat Large Marge’s scary, big-rig story word-for-word or are someone who doesn’t know the name Francis Buxton (“Pee-wee, listen to reason!”), there’s never not a good time to watch Big Adventure.
So, why was Pee-wee such a catch back in 1985? “He’s his own man,” actress Elizabeth Daily, who played Pee-wee’s love un-interest Dottie, told the Current back in 2015. “He was very independent and determined and sweet. He was an animal lover. He had his own style, which is sexy. I liked his bowtie and his shoes and the little wave on the front of his hair. I liked the whole package.”
Free, Thu May 31, 8pm, McNay Art Museum, 6000 N. New Braunfels Ave., (210) 824-5368, mcnayart.org.
