The Muppet Christmas Carol: 30th Anniversary Screening
Saturday, Dec 24 at 12:30 pm
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Brian Henson. 1992, 85 mins. DCP. With Michael Caine, Dave Goelz, Steve Whitmire, Jerry Nelson, Frank Oz. In this beloved staple of many a childhood, the Charles Dickens classic is recast with the classic Muppet characters, including Gonzo as Charles Dickens, Kermit at Bob Cratchit, and Fozzie Bear as Fozziwig. This faithful adaptation is as full of Christmas spirit and imagination as any of the various film adaptations of the novel, and features a towering performance by Caine as the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and a splendid musical score by Paul Williams. Jim Henson Legacy President Craig Shemin will introduce the screening and present rare photos and clips from the making of the film.
