SAY MY NAME
If you say “Beetlejuice” three times, the 1988 comedy appears at the top of your Netflix queue. But why do that when you can see it under the stars at Brooklyn Bridge Park as part of the Syfy Movies with a View series? Spread out a blanket and bring a picnic dinner, and watch as surly spook Michael Keaton terrorizes the unwary using the time-honored haunting technique of the Harry Belafonte lipsynch. Director Tim Burton has OD’d on CGI in recent years, so it’s great to step back and watch his imagination at play with Claymation and physical FX.
