Labyrinth

When: Sun., Sept. 11, 2 & 7 p.m. 2016

Labyrinth, which is somehow 30 years old at this point, is the platonic ideal of a cult film. Start with Jim Henson's creatures, throw in a screenplay by Monty Python's Terry Jones, get a young Jennifer Connelly to play the lead and then top it all off with David Bowie as the enigmatic Goblin King, Jareth -- it's quite a concoction. The musical story of a young girl (Connelly) entering an otherworldly labyrinth in order to rescue her younger brother has Muppet-y goblins, the gentle giant Ludo and a dancing David Bowie. What the world needs now is Labyrinth, sweet Labyrinth. The favorite film of two or three generations is screened at 2 and 7 p.m. today at the Regal St. Louis Mills Stadium 18 (5555 St. Louis Mills Boulevard, Hazelwood; www.fathomevents.com). Tickets are $13.76.
