FIU’s The Wolfsonian presents Home is Where the Horror Is Series

Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Shh! Don’t say it three times or you know what happens. 

FIU’s The Wolfsonian is partnering with O Cinema South Beach as part of The Wolfsonian’s Mark Mamolen program series on American homes, investigating how the design of living space powerfully expresses individual personality and social values through American horror movies.

Sounds interesting, right?

Tickets for this series are $11 for non-Wolfsonian members and $7.50 for members. 

The first film being shown in the series will be Beetlejuice on Sunday, June 12 from 4-6 p.m.

In 1988’s Beetlejuice, it’s the post-modern makeover of a 19th-century house. When the obnoxious Deetz family renovate their newly purchased home, the offense against taste spurs the previous owners, the recently deceased Maitlands, to begin a campaign of haunting that wreaks hilarious havoc on both the living and the dead. The second installment in our summer film series, this screening of Beetlejuice at O Cinema will be followed by a discussion led by Wolfsonian curator/old-house enthusiast Shoshana Resnikoff, who will zero in on the life, death, and afterlife of American domestic design.

Other films in the series include:

  • The Shining. 4 p.m. Sunday, July 10, 2022
  • Candyman. 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 14, 2022
