Before the tryptophan from your roast turkey does you
in, you might want to top off your Thanksgiving Day by treating yourself to Labyrinth (1986), Muppeteer Jim Henson's
unheralded gem in which a young Jennifer Connelly stars as a girl who must
enter the surreal, Escher-like maze of the title, inhabited by some really big,
ugly Muppets, to rescue her brother from the Goblin King, played by David Bowie
having a bad hair day. It screens tonight at the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Harvard Square | Thursday, November 24 @
9:30 pm | $9.75; $7.75 students;
$6.75 seniors | 617.876.6837 or brattlefilm.org.
