About the Event

Join Ijams and Central Cinema for a classically funny adventure film, in honor of National Bike Month, as we start the summer movie series with Pee-Wee's Big Adventure.

Rated PG, this movie is Tim Burton's directorial debut and has become a cult classic film over the years. When the eccentric and quirky, child-like man, Pee-wee Herman, gets his beloved bike stolen in broad daylight, he sets out across the U.S. on the adventure of his life and he meets some wild folks along the way. 

Doors open at 7 pm; movie begins at dark (~8:45pm). Food trucks and the Ijams beer garden will have tasty meals, snacks, and beverages available for purchase. NO COOLERS AND NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL PLEASE. Dogs are allowed, but must be on leash at all times. Lawn chairs and blankets are recommended. This event is on the Visitor Center lawn.

Tickets are $12 per person (Ijams and Central Cinema members receive a $2 discount per ticket. Memberships will need be verified before day of the event. To verify membership and to get the discount code, please call Ijams at (865) 577-4717 ex 1001). Ticket for this event include parking fees.
