The imaginative, hilarious comedy, stars happy-go-lucky Pee-Wee Herman (aka comedian Paul Reubens.) Pee-Wee Herman is not an average little boy – he exists in a grown-up body, has a penchant for 1950s Retro memorabilia, and lives in a zany, make-believe world. He is on a mission to find his beloved red bicycle, which has been stolen, and on the way Pee-Wee has a series of cartoon-like adventures. When a fortune teller instructs Pee-Wee to look for his bike in the basement of the Alamo, he takes her advice. Embarking on a kind of Hero’s Journey, Pee-Wee comes into contact with characters even crazier than he is. With imaginative sets and dream sequences that use claymation and pixilated models, Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure is a side-splitting comedy that references almost every Hollywood genre, especially the perennial favorite Road Movie.
This year’s Back-Alley Summer Cinema Series is brought to you by Kadinger Event Production, WHYS community radio, Benny HaHa Art Supply and Gallery, and of course, the fine folks typing these words, Volume One Magazine.
