What: “Tim Burton and the Lurid Beauty of Monsters;” In conjunction with MoMA’s career retrospective of artist and filmmaker Tim Burton, there are weekly screenings of landmark films in the genres of stop-motion animation, German expressionism, Grand Guignol horror, Universal monsters, and B-grade science-fiction, all of which inspired Burton’s work. Burton has said of watching these movies while growing up, “I loved the lurid beauty of these monster movies. They spoke to me. I didn’t understand the world, and these films were somehow symbolic of the way I felt.”
For ticket information and showtimes, visit the MoMA online. There are over a dozen different films being screened, surely at least one for every type of film buff.
When & Where: Through April 26 at Theater 1 in the MoMA.
