Break out your candy stripes and scissors and get ready to glide on down Vampira-style to the Australian Centre for the Moving Image this Wednesday, for the one and only Tim Burton is in town — and he’ll be gracing the red carpet at Flinders Street to mark the opening of his exhibition in Melbourne.

Following an enormously successful run at New York’s Museum of Modern Art — it was their third most-attended show ever, behind Picasso and Matisse — Tim Burton: The Exhibition is making its international debut Thursday, June 24 at ACMI, where it will run through Sunday October 10.

A treat for both Burton fans and connoisseurs of the weird and wonderful in cinema, the exhibition brings the filmmaker’s distinct world out of the shadows to reveal a rich legacy of material, from his early sketches and teenage movies through his work at Disney, big-budget endeavours and scores of props and artworks from films including Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Alice in Wonderland. Oh, and there’s also a Batmobile.

Tim Burton will walk the red carpet from 5:30pm Wednesday, where he will be joined by MoMA director Glenn Lowry, curators Ron Magliozzi, Jenny He and Rajendra Roy and ACMI’s Head of Exhibitions Conrad Bodman.
