Keaton to introduce "Beetlejuice" screening at Dryden 

The George Eastman Museum has announced that actor Michael Keaton will introduce the film "Beetlejuice" at a screening on Wednesday, June 8, at 8 p.m., at the Dryden Theatre. Keaton will be in Rochester to receive the 2016 George Eastman Award in a ceremony and gala reception held on June 9.

"Beetlejuice" stars Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin as two recently deceased ghosts who enlist the services of a "bio-exorcist" (Keaton) to help them scare away the odd, new family who moves into their former home. The film marks the first collaboration between Keaton and director Tim Burton, before the pair went on to work on "Batman" and "Batman Returns."

Though he's nearly unrecognizable in the role due to heavy makeup, Keaton himself has often ranked his performance as "the ghost with the most" as among his favorites. Tickets to the June 8 screening of "Beetlejuice" will be $20 and are now available online at eastman.org/beetlejuice. The films kicks off a month-long tribute to Keaton's wide-ranging talent with a series of film screenings that's scheduled to include "Mr. Mom," "Clean and Sober," "Jackie Brown," "Batman Returns," and "Much Ado About Nothing."

Limited tickets to the George Eastman Award ceremony and gala are also available and can be purchased at eastman.org/eastmanaward2016.
