Edward Scissorhands – Presented by Nostalgic Nebula

Relive the classic tale of an outsider trying to fit in as Nostalgic Nebula presents a special 30th anniversary screening of Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands!

A pale-skinned man with, well, scissorhands, Edward is plucked from his isolated world of the castle he lives in to the quiet little town his home looms over. Edward transforms the outside of the town, using his unique appendages to beautify the neighborhood lawns and even provide the townsfolk with outrageous new hair-dos. As much as Edward is able to superficially change the town, its inhabitants remain the same at heart: skeptical and superstitious. After a few misunderstandings, the town that once lauded their weird new neighbor succumb to fear and turn their backs on him, driving him back to whence he came. 

Before the film, snack on Edward’s heart-shaped cookies and enjoy a piano music tribute to Danny Elfman’s dark and romantic score by Nostalgic Neubla’s very own conductor, Flora Cheng.

Doors: 7:00 PM

Piano tribute/ Film : 7:30 PM


“Burton’s modern fairytale has an almost palpably personal feel: it is told gently, subtly and with infinite sympathy for an outsider who charms the locals but then inadvertently arouses their baser instincts.” – Marc Lee, Daily Telegraph

“…perhaps the cinema’s most enchanting parable about the misunderstood and alienated artist.” – Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm

“A delightful and delicate comic fable.” Variety
