Summer Nights Film Series: Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure (June 25)

Movies are more fun when watched outside. Sitting on a blanket with good friends or that special someone. Nestled up together as you enjoy a picnic and a classic film. The Indianapolis Museum of Art understands the appeal, hence there Summer Nights Film Series. The Summer Nights Film Series at the IMA continues Friday, June 25, 2010 with the 1985 adventure comedy Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure. Directed by Tim Burton, this wacky adventure stars none other than Paul Reubens in the title role of Pee-Wee. Enjoy a funny film and the fresh Summer air at the IMA’s amphitheatre, which faces the newly opened Virgina Fairbanks 100 Acres Art and Nature Park. The Indianapolis Museum of Art aims to entertain Indianapolis people all summer long.

Pee-wee Herman loves his bicycle more than anything in a world. It comes as no surprise that when his spoiled next door neighbor, Francis, wants Pee-wee’s bike as a present, that our title character refuses to sell his prized possession. With errands to run at the the local mall’s magic store and Chuck’s Bike-O-Rama, Pee-Wee takes a joy ride. But when he returns to where he locked his bike up outside, he discovers it has been stolen. A distraught Pee-wee seeks help from the police and his friends to find his bike. And although he suspects Francis, with no evidence, his suspicions remain unquelled.

Though he is wild with grief over the loss of his bike, its clear to see that no one around him believes his stolen bike is quite the emergency he is making it out to be. With no where else to turn, Pee-wee sets off on the adventure of a lifetime to reclaim is stolen property and reunite with his one true love. His journey takes him to a psychic, who sends him hitchhiking cross country in search of his bike. Whether in a roadside diner or on the Warner Bros. Studio, Pee-wee is single minded in his determination. Wreaking tons of havoc along the way, Pee-wee takes a big adventure, laughing and crying as he goes. One thing is for sure, no one has a nose for adventure like Pee-wee!
