PG — Parental Guidance Suggested
NOTE: The start time for this film has been moved to noon to accommodate the Library's Christmas Eve schedule. 

Tim Burton has never been about convention, even (and maybe especially) at Christmas. He delivered a very different kind of holiday classic in 
The Nightmare Before Christmas, a stop-motion animation musical that exemplifies his quirky, dark, and invariably imaginative take on the world.
 
The Library celebrates Burton’s writing, producing, and directing genius by screening five of his films this month, of course saving Nightmare for Christmas Eve.
