Paramount at the Movies Presents: Edward Scissorhands [PG-13]

Movies | 10/15/2023 | 2:00PM

1990 | PG-13 | Runtime: 105 minutes

In a castle high on top of a hill lives an inventor’s greatest creation – Edward, a near-complete person. The creator died before he could finish Edward’s hands; instead, Edward is left with metal scissors for hands. Edward has always lived alone, until a kind lady called Peg discovers Edward and welcomes him into her home. At first, everyone welcomes Edward into the community, but soon things begin to take a change for the worse.

Did you know?

  • The entire story is meant to be seen through Edward’s eyes, which is why the neighborhood looks so “fantastical.”
  • The role of The Inventor was written specifically for Vincent Price.
  • Although Tim Burton said this isn’t his greatest film, he said it is his favorite of all his films, and the score is Danny Elfman’s favorite of all his soundtrack compositions.
  • When Peg drives up to the mansion, one of the clouds is shaped like scissors.
