Take a tour through the Lutz ‘Edward Scissorhands’ house. Movie buffs can now experience the Tim Burton world right here in Tampa Bay.
Sharon and Joey Licalzi have only owned the “Scissorland” house for less than a year, but it’s becoming quite a popular destination spot for ‘Edward Scissorhands’ movie lovers.
Now, you can visit Lutz ‘Edward Scissorhands’ house that was the setting for the 1990 film starring Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder.
The iconic and cult classic movie was originally released on December 7, 1990. Depp, who plays the title character has scissor blades instead of hands. After being found living in isolation in the attic of a castle Edward is taken in by a typical suburban family and falls in love with their daughter played by Wynonna Ryder.
After the Licalzi couple bought the home last year, they decided to open up the home as a free museum. They provided us a couple of photos of the house to share with you. Sharon and Joey have also said they are planning on hosting movie screenings when the weather becomes a bit cooler outside.
Please visit @official_scissorland on Instagram to set an appointment. The owners are doing their best to control traffic and they no longer take walkups. You will be able to DM them on Instagram for details.
