The Nightmare Before Christmas

Henry Selick | US | 76

1993. With the voices of Chris Sarandon, Catherine O’Hara, Paul Reubens. Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloweentown, longs for something more in life, and thinks he has found it when he stumbles upon the brilliant twinkling lights of Christmastown. He then becomes determined to have it all for himself. Conceived and produced by Tim Burton and directed by stop-motion animation whiz Selick, this meticulously crafted fantasy, featuring Oscar-nominated special effects and a dazzling, tuneful song score by the great composer Danny Elfman, brings two holidays together and has become a staple of both Christmas and Halloween.

Part of the Sunday Night Movies series of free screenings presented by NYC Councilman Francisco Moya.
