The Dark Crystal

The Dark Crystal

Back in 1982, Muppet men Jim Henson and Frank Oz created this imaginative fantasy film and populated it with some of their most memorable puppeteering work. Everything takes place in a dark, ruined world ruled over by the evil, birdlike Skeksis. Naturally, a young orphan boy holds the key to stopping the bad guys and saving his planet. Misunderstood at the time, this scarier, more adult film has garnered a significant cult following in the years since. Michael McCormick, the film's creature fabricator, will be on hand to introduce the screenings and participate in a Q&A.
