“The Muppet Movie”

35th Anniversary Family Matinee Screening

Join Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, The Great Gonzo and all of your favorite Muppets as they head to Hollywood in their first big-screen adventure, "The Muppet Movie." It's hard to believe it's been 35 years since Jim Henson brought his beloved creations to cinemas in a hilarious road-trip like no other. Kermit and pals try to strike it big in Tinseltown while on the run from the fast-food mogul Doc Hopper (Charles Durning) and his lackey Max (Austin Pendleton). Featuring a bevy of celebrity cameos including Steve Martin, Mel Brooks, Milton Berle, Bob Hope, Dom DeLuise, Elliott Gould, Madeline Kahn, Richard Pryor, Cloris Leachman and Orson Welles, and a fantastic collection of songs by Paul Williams.

Very special guest DAVE GOELZ, voice and puppeteer of Gonzo the Great, will appear for a conversation and Q&A at our 35th Anniversary screening of "The Muppet Movie." Dave worked on countless revered Henson productions in addition to Muppets features and the beloved television show, including "Sesame Street," "Fraggle Rock," "Emmett Otter's Jugband Christmas," "The Dark Crystal," and "Labyrinth." In addition to Gonzo, Dave is also responsible for the iconic characters of Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Zoot, and Doglion.
