Watch 'Edward Scissorhands' With MoPOP + Special Guest Isabella L. Price!

MoPOP Grow Up! Watchalong - 'Edward Scissorhands'

For our "Grow Up!" film series, we're exploring adolescence in all its lusty, zitty, complicated glory. Beginning in September and running through December 2020, we'll be celebrating movies from all over the genre map that show just how joyful and confounding being a teenager can be. 

You're invited to join us at 4 p.m. PT this Saturday, October 3, as MoPOP Production Associate Kasi Gaarenstroom, MoPOP Manager of Public Engagement Robert Rutherford, and special guest Isabella L. Price lead an online watchalong and virtual discussion of Edward Scissorhands.

Isabella L. Price is a filmmaker, writer, costume designer, podcast host, burlesque performer, and horror film aficionado who currently runs Seattle’s only paranormal radio show, Nocturnal Emissions, on Hollow Earth Radio 104.9 FM. Price has held panels and presentations focusing on genre film at conventions like Crypticon, Emerald City Comic Con, GeekGirlCon, PAXWest, and New York Comic Con. 

Here are a handful of program elements you can expect to see this Saturday, October 3 during our Edward Scissorhands watchalong:

  • Pre-film introduction with MoPOP’s Kasi Gaarenstroom and It’s Coming from Inside the House watchalong host, MoPOP Manager of Public Engagement Robert Rutherford, plus special guest Isabella L. Price, Seattle’s only horror hostess.
  • Cheap-as-heck quarantine cosplay! Check out the video embedded above if you want to transform into our favorite scissor-handed boy!
    • Warning: plastic scissorhands are more dangerous than you might think, even if you can’t give a rockin' hair cut with them. Proceed with caution!
  • Cocktails, mocktails, beer, and wine pairing recommendations
  • Chat with Kasi, Robert, Isabella, and other fans during the film
  • Post-film discussion on how Edward Scissorhands exemplifies the horrors of growing up! 

As with all of our virtual watchalongs, to participate you'll need to register in advance, and then on event day make sure you have a copy of the film queued up and ready to watch on your end while keeping an eye on your e-mail inbox for a link to join our online discussion.

If you happen to own a copy of the film, get it queued up at 4 p.m. PT this Saturday, October 3! Otherwise, here's a few places where you can find Edward Scissorhands online:
