It’s the heartwarming tale of a lone rebel who travels the country in search of his beloved stolen bicycle.  In 1985, comedian/ actor/ author Paul Reubens brought to life his eccentric, and unforgettable character of Pee-wee Herman, to the big screen with his co-written “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.”  Hailed as a critical and financial triumph, this magical blend of family fun takes you on a road trip that has grossed over 40 million domestically, spawned multiple sequels, as well as Saturday Morning’s Pee Wee’s Playhouse. (A celebrated series that earned 22 Emmy® Awards during its five-year run. Reubens has personally been nominated for 14 Emmy® Awards, with two wins.)  The film has gone to become an instant multigenerational midnight cult classic. To celebrate its 35th anniversary, Pee-wee is once again hitting the road. This time on a multi-city American tour with a special screening followed by Reubens in-person sharing stories from behind the scenes and making of the film.
