Classic fantasy film Labyrinth returns to theaters in March


The classic 1980s fantasy film Labyrinth is making its glorious return to theaters next month, courtesy of Fathom Events.

Labyrinth is getting a very limited theatrical re-release on March 6th and March 8th only, and tickets are already on sale via the Fathom Events site.

Originally released back in June 1986 and directed by the legendary Jim Henson, Labyrinth starred Jennifer Connelly as distraught teen Sarah alongside none other than rock legend David Bowie, who played Jareth the Goblin King.

The film saw mixed critical reception when it debuted, though it was a commercial success – it wasn’t until later home releases that it gained a much larger success and a dedicated cult following.

Labyrinth featured original music composed by Trevor Jones alongside main themes by David Bowie himself, who also performed in the songs as well. The film has Sarah (Connelly) transported to another world, the Labyrinth itself, to save her half-brother Toby from the Goblin King (Bowie).

The classic film’s synopsis reads: “Frustrated with babysitting on yet another weekend night, Sarah (Jennifer Connelly), a teenager with an active imagination, summons the Goblins to take her baby stepbrother away. When little Toby actually disappears, Sarah must follow him into a fantastical world to rescue him from the Goblin King (David Bowie). Guarding his castle is the labyrinth itself, a twisted maze of deception, populated with outrageous characters and unknown dangers. To get through it in time to save Toby, Sarah befriends the Goblins, in hopes that their loyalty isn’t just another illusion in a place where nothing is as it seems.”

Here’s a teaser for the theatrical re-release:
