Labyrinth is Off the Wall Friday night


Only in the ’80s could Labyrinth have happened. Behind the scenes: Muppet king Jim Henson and Howard the Duck mastermind George Lucas, in sometimes contentious collaboration. Onscreen: David Bowie, fresh off Let’s Dance, as a goblin king, and Jennifer Connelly, very pre-Requiem for a Dream, as a lousy baby sitter. Lots of puppetry, some singing. The 1986 fantasy is the latest of this summer’s Pitch-sponsored Off the Wall rooftop movies at the Kansas City Central Library (14 West 10th Street). The free screening starts Friday at dusk (around 8:45), preceded by free beer from co-sponsor KC Bier Co. See kclibrary.org for details.
