FREE Halloween Film Screening: The Nightmare Before Christmas

Nightmare icon

This is Halloween, this is Halloween, pumpkins scream in the dead of night! 

Join us for a Halloween screening of the 1993 Tim Burton classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The film was originally conceived as a poem, written by Burton in 1982. Enjoying the success of his stop-motion short film Vincent, Walt Disney Studios became interested in producing The Nightmare Before Christmas as a short film or perhaps a 30 minute TV special. In 1990, Burton made a deal with Disney to create a feature-length film directed by Henry Selick. Featuring an entertaining musical score by Danny Elfman and a distinctive gothic style, the film went on to become a critical and commercial success.

Date: Friday, 30 October
Time: 5.30pm
Venue: Events Space, Level 2, City Campus Library
Register your attendance 
Popcorn, lollies and drinks provided 

Synopsis: Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Pumpkin King Jack Skellington longs to spread the joy of Christmas. But his merry mission puts Santa in jeopardy and creates a nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere.

All are welcome to attend. Members of the public without UTS ID Cards will need to register for Day Visitor passes to gain access to the Library.
