David Bowie is back on the big screen... but only for three days

Jim Henson's cult-classic musical is back in the box office between April 29 and May 2.

The 80s saw a lot of strange ideas coming to fruition. David Bowie's career during that decade was proof enough. Bowie then added to his brand of weirdness by starring in Jim Henson's fantasy musical 'Labyrinth'.

Now, you'll be able to catch the spaceman on the big screen...but only for three days. 'Labyrinth' will be showing at USĀ  theatres on Sunday, April 29, on Tuesday, May 1, and Wednesday, May 2.

'Labyrinth' follows the tale of a young girl, Sarah, played by Jennifer Connelly, who has to find her baby brother after wishing him away in a bout of frustration.

Jareth, played by Bowie, is the goblin king that grants her the wish. Jareth has the baby trapped in his labyrinth, and Sarah has to make her way through his riddles and games while making friends with mythical creatures along the way.

When 'Labyrinth' was released in 1986, it didn't fare well at the box office. But soon after Jim Henson's death in 1990, the film started gaining a cult following. Bowie's portrayal of the goblin king was one of his most iconic roles. Not only did Ziggy star in the movie, he also wrote and performed five songs on the original soundtrack.

It's going to be nice to watch Bowie on the big screen. Maybe we can finally catch a glimpse of life on Mars.
