It's crazy to think that in 2020 it will have been 35 years since Pee-wee's Big Adventure landed in theaters, and to celebrate the occasion the man who brought Pee-wee to life Paul Ruebens is doing something special for fans. For the big 35th Anniversary Ruebens is heading out on the road for Pee-wee's Big Adventure 35th Anniversary Tour, and it will be making a stop in 20 different cities across the United States. The event will be produced by Live Nation and will feature a full screening of the film followed by stories about making the classic movie from Reuben, and it's something no Pee-wee fan wants to miss.
The event will start on February 14th in Portland, Oregon, and will then hit Seattle, Denver, Salt Lake City, and more before ultimately ending on March 29th at the Warner Theatre in Washington, DC. If you're near one of the 20 locations, you can grab a ticket starting on Friday, December 13th at 10 am on Ticketmaster.
For those looking for a VIP experience, there will also be VIP packages that include a super-secret gift, a photo opportunity, and a signed print in addition to the ticket, and you can check out all the dates below.
