Win tickets to 'Labyrinth' at the Loft

David Bowie never appeared in many conventional movies, but "Labyrinth," directed by Jim Henson of "Muppets" fame, produced by George Lucas and featuring a young Jennifer Connelly as well as the British rocker, may be among his least predictable. And we've got a pair of tickets that could be yours.

To enter, comment here with your favorite song by Bowie (and tell us a little bit about why), or head over to the Facebook page and share the post about this giveaway. We'll pick a winner at random for showings this weekend at The Loft Cinema.

More on the film from the Loft:

All hail The Goblin King as we celebrate the magic of the one-and-only David Bowie with 30th anniversary screenings of the fantastic adventure, Labyrinth!

Fifteen-year-old Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) is so resentful of her baby brother Toby that she hopes he will just disappear. Her dream becomes reality when goblins kidnap the boy – but Sarah unexpectedly finds herself horrified by the loss.

So she sets forth to retrieve him, and finds herself on the adventure of a lifetime. To accomplish her goal, she will somehow have to reach the center of the fantastical Labyrinth where the wicked Goblin King (David Bowie, who performs two songs and wears one of the greatest New Wave leather jumpsuit/cape combos of the ’80s) has imprisoned the lad. But the task is easier said than done, for the maze is filled with strange creatures, mind-bending puzzles and dangerous obstacles that threaten to keep Sarah apart from her brother forever! Directed by Muppet-master Jim Henson, produced by George Lucas and penned by Monty Python’s Terry Jones, Labyrinth is a distinctive, beautifully designed (love that M.C. Escher-inspired staircase!), and often freaky dark fantasy for all ages. (Dir. by Jim Henson, 1986, USA, 101 mins., Rated PG)

The movie screens Friday-Sunday at 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. (there's a Thursday showing, too, but we won't pick a winner until Friday.)
