One of Tim Burton’s most celebrated films, THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS will be projected on the big screen with dialog and effects accompanied by Danny Elfman’s enigmatic score played live by your Austin Symphony Orchestra!

Audiences will follow Jack Skellington, Halloween Town’s resident Pumpkin King, through his adventure to Christmas Town, where residents are preparing for the upcoming, cheerful Christmas holiday. Bored with his perennial role as Halloween Town’s frightening Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington is determined to shake things up in Christmas Town and enlists the help of some mischievous trick-or-treaters to kidnap Santa Claus and take over the job of delivering gifts to the children of the world. When his plan goes awry, Jack attempts to restore Santa to his rightful place. But first, he must rescue St. Nick from the clutches of the evil Oogie Boogie!
