Family Flicks Film Series: The Muppet Movie
Co-presented with the UCLA Film and Television Archive
Recommended for ages 5+
The Muppets’ big-screen debut tells the story of how the troupe first met with wised-up wit and whimsy to spare. As Kermit treks cross-country from his swampy home to Hollywood, he’s joined by Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, The Electric Mayhem, and the rest of the gang. (1979, 35mm, color, 94 min. Dir. James Frawley)
