In the year 1752, the Collins family, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. Two decades pass, and Barnabas (Johnny Depp), a rich and inveterate playboy, breaks the heart of a witch, who dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns home to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. His dysfunctional descendents have fared little better, each harboring their own dark secrets. Dark Shadows was directed by Tim Burton, and features Johnny Depp, Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter and Chloe Moretz. DARK SHADOWS is also playing at the Johnson IMAX Theater at the National Museum of Natural History. Click here for showtimes.
