Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice: Movies Under the Pines brings back classic comedy

Say his name three times and Beetlejuice will appear, at least that will be the case at Pioneer Park Saturday in the latest presentation of Movies Under the Pines hosted by the Nevada City Film Festival.

Just in time for Father's Day weekend, Movies Under the Pines presents the Tim Burton classic Beetlejuice, starring Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis and Catherine O'Hara.

This 1988 PG comedy-fantasy, which will be shown June 17, revolves around a recently deceased young couple who become ghosts haunting their former home, and an obnoxious, devious ghost named Betelgeuse (pronounced "Beetlejuice") from the Netherworld who tries to scare away the new inhabitants permanently.

Nevada City Film Festival presents Movies Under the Pines, an outdoor cinema experience, returns to Pioneer Park and the Nevada County Fairgrounds this summer with screenings of such classics as Wall-E, Stand By Me, The NeverEnding Story, Vertigo and The Big Lebowski.

Building on the success and excitement of the last four summers of screenings, the Nevada City Film Festival will host two screenings each month from June to August. For each screening the festival will bring in state of the art projection and sound, plus offer an array of pre-show food and drink options, specialty cocktails, entertainment and games and more.

"With all the great events this community has to offer, (Movies Under the Pines) stands out," says Harrison Dockter, the event's new producer. "It's a very special way to spend a summer night."

Dockter curated this year's films with a wider audience of film lovers in mind.
