Paul Reubens Is Taking Pee-wee’s Big Adventure on Tour for Its 35th Anniversary
Attention, Pee-wee Herman fans: It's time to break out your Schwinn bicycles and hit the road. In honor of the 35th anniversary of Pee-wee's Big Adventure, Paul Reubens, a.k.a Pee-wee Herman, is touring the country to screen the movie, Rolling Stone reports.
When Pee-wee's Big Adventure premiered in 1985, it marked director Tim Burton's feature debut. The film also introduced the character of Pee-wee Herman—a precocious, sharply dressed man-child who originated as a sketch comedy routine—to a wider audience.
The cult classic turns 35 in 2020, and to celebrate, the actor behind the character is going on an anniversary tour. From February 14 through March 29, Paul Reubens will visit 20 cities to host screenings of Pee-wee's first movie. The tour spans coast to coast, and includes stops in Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, New York, and Washington, D.C. Following each showing of the film, Reubens will entertain fans with a Q&A session. So if you've ever wondered how he came up with his iconic Tequila dance or what Large Marge was really like in person, now's your chance to ask him.
Regular tickets—as well as VIP packages that include merchandise, photo opportunities, and backstage access—are on sale now. You can buy yours today through the tour's website.
