Edward Scissorhands

We’re celebrating the 30th anniversary of Tim Burton’s weird and wonderful classic with a beautiful restoration of Edward Scissorhands

Edward (Johnny Depp), a synthetic man with scissor hands, leads a solitary life after the passing of his inventor (Vincent Price).

On a chance visit, local Avon lady Peg (Diane Wiest) finds Edward alone and offers to take him home, where he falls for Peg’s teenage daughter Kim (Winona Ryder).

Edward’s kindness and artistic talent endear him to the townspeople, until he is blamed for a crime he did not commit.

‘Burton’s richly entertaining update of the Frankenstein story is the most comic, romantic and haunting film fantasy’ - Rolling Stone
