The Muppet Movie

Can you believe it has been 40 years since The Muppet Movie hit theaters? It is time to celebrate the mayhem of The Muppets all over again! Be sure to check your local listing because this summer is sure to be one to remember!

If you’re heading to New York this summer, you can catch two special screenings at the Museum of Moving Image. Jim Henson Legacy president Craig Shemin will be hosting the screenings on both days. On June 22, Shemin will be joined by puppet designer and builder Ed Christie and Muppet costume designer Calista Hendrickson. If you come back the next day, June 23, you can attend a screening with co-host Austin Pendleton, who played Max. Can’t make it to New York this Summer? The simply check out this link to see where it’s playing near you in July!

When The Muppets hit theaters in 1979, it was unlike anything moviegoers had seen. The musical gave an even larger audience of fans an introduction to the lovable gang of misfits we know today. Kermit takes a road trip to Hollywood in hopes to make it big. This film gave the world the wonderful tune “Rainbow Connection,” which has become synonymous with The Muppets. In 2009, the film was deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. Not bad for a lot of foolishness!
