“This is Halloween—everybody make a scene!” One of Tim Burton’s most celebrated films, The Nightmare Before Christmas follows the earnest-but-misguided adventures of Jack Skellington, Halloween Town’s beloved Pumpkin King, as he attempts to take over the Christmas holiday. Against the advice of Sally, a lonely rag doll who has feelings for him, Jack enlists three mischievous trick-or-treaters—Lock, Shock, and Barrel—to help him kidnap “Sandy Claws”. This cult classic comes to life like never before, projected on the big screen with Danny Elfman’s delightfully quirky score performed live by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
