Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure turns 35 next year, and star/creator Paul Reubens is taking the film on the road to celebrate. Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure tour, which starts on Valentine’s Day in Portland, will feature a screening of the movie and a follow-up Q&A session.
For an idea of what to expect from Reubens, take a look at his Q&A session following the release of Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday in 2016. Reubens shared the genesis of Adventure‘s bike theft plot.
“I was writing a remake of [the 1960 Disney film] Pollyanna without permission,” he shared. “Every day, me, [Pee-wee’s Big Adventure writer] Phil Hartman and a producer would take a lunch break and walk to the commissary. As we would walk by, every single person was on a bike and every day, I’d be like, ‘I gotta get a bike.’ One day I came back from lunch and they had bought me a restored Schwinn racer and it was chained up to a post that had a little character of me that said ‘Pee-wee Herman bike parking only.’ And I looked at it and said, ‘I’m writing the wrong movie. We’re doing the wrong thing.’”
After that opening show in Portland, Reubens will head to Seattle’s Moore Theatre and Denver’s Paramount Theatre. Following shows in Texas and Florida, the movie heads to the Chicago Theatre and Minneapolis’ State Theatre. The tour closes on March 29 at DC’s Warner Theatre.
Tickets go on sale on December 13. Take a look at the dates below.
