Boise Classic Movies: Labyrinth

Thursday, Aug. 13


For those fortunate enough to remember the weird mix of joy and terror that comes with a first viewing of Labyrinth, the experience can be relived on Aug. 13 at The Egyptian Theatre.

For those who don't know what a Hoggle is—or who have never seen a farting swamp—now is your chance to take in this bizarre '80s "children's" movie, directed by Jim Henson and starring Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie, the latter as the glam-rock villain.

No matter your familiarity with the realms of the Goblin King, you'll leave the theater with a renewed appreciation for puppets and a few questions about what's going on in Bowie's pants.

Though it flopped at the box office, the "dance magic" of Labyrinth has stood the test of time.
