Submitted by Karah Kemmerly on Mon, 05/02/2016 - 10:51am

Spend an evening remembering the legendary David Bowie at this fantastic installment of Film on the Rocks. In the classic 1986 film, teenage Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) teams up with an odd band of creatures to thwart the Goblin King (Bowie) and rescue her baby brother. Between Bowie's musical numbers, Jim Henson's elaborate puppets, and the outlandish sets and costumes, this is one throwback worth digging through the archive for. Mon 7 p.m.
