The Muppets Take Manhattan

Saturday, May 11 at 1:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

40th anniversary screening, with Craig Shemin, President of the Jim Henson Legacy, in person!

Dir. Frank Oz. U.S., 1984, 94 mins. With Jim Henson, Dave Goelz, Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt, Steve Whitmire. When the Muppets’ college revue is a big hit, they decide to take the show all the way to Broadway. Adjusting to the hustle and bustle of New York City, Kermit takes a job at a local restaurant while he searches for a producer. Filled with cameos by quintessential New Yorkers, such as Gregory Hines and Liza Minnelli, the movie ends with a fantastical and questionably genuine wedding between Kermit and Miss Piggy.
