Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas”  — the stop-motion masterpiece from director Henry Selick — returns to Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre from Oct. 21 through Oct. 31 but for the first time ever it will do so in “4-D” — that’s Disney 3-D plus special effects in the theater itself, such as wind and fog.

There will also be a famous face and voice joining the festivities, as composer/songwriter Danny Elfman is scheduled to appear before the Oct. 21. screening.  The mad genius of Oingo Boingo will take the stage to introduce bonus material from the soon to be released “Danny Elfman & Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box,” the lavish 16-CD boxed set featuring 19 hours of music from all 13 Burton/Elfman films (including seven hours of previously unreleased rarities). Tickets can be purchased at the El Capitan box office (6838 Hollywood Blvd.), at the online box office or by calling 1-800-DISNEY6.

Here’s the original trailer to the 1993 spook-tacular.

    This article also intially stated that the screening would be on the 22nd. Which sucks because I now can't get a refund.
