In honor of legendary pop star David Bowie, who died on Sunday, two area movie theaters are planning tributes this weekend:
▪ Screenland Armour offers two chances to see the 1986 cult favorite “Labyrinth.” Bowie played Jareth the Goblin King, who kidnaps the baby brother of a bratty teenage girl (a young Jennifer Connelly) and has her fight to the center of a treacherous maze to get him back. It’s showing at 7 p.m. Friday and 9:30 p.m. Saturday at 408 Armour Road in North Kansas City, with a collection of music videos playing beforehand. See screenland.com.
▪ Alamo Drafthouse: The sing-along “Let’s Dance and Celebrate the Starman” starts at 9:40 p.m. Friday (a Saturday showing is sold out). The theater will also show a “Labyrinth” quote-along, with subtitles, so you can sing and shout all the best lines, at 9:45 p.m. Sunday and 6:30 p.m. Monday. Prop bags included. Proceeds benefit the University of Kansas Cancer Center. See drafthouse.com.
Sorry, Knuckleheads Saloon’s the Band That Fell to Earth: A Tribute to David Bowie on Jan. 31 is sold out.
