If you can’t quote every single line from Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (1985), you clearly haven’t watched it enough times. Tonight, take the opportunity to get the whole thing down pat when the Tim Burton-directed film comes to the “Summer on the Hudson” series. Cheer on everyone’s favorite man-child as he goes from his fun house to the Alamo on a quest to find his stolen bicycle (a psychic tells him it’s hidden in the Alamo’s basement), with stops along the way at a biker bar, the Cabazon Dinosaurs, a rodeo, and a Twisted Sister music video. If anyone asks, be sure and tell ’em Large Marge sent ya.
