Jim Henson’s “The Dark Crystal” is returning to theaters for a limited two-night run.

The spellbinding Jim Henson classic, “The Dark Crystal,” is returning to the big screen this February for a limited two-night engagement.

On Feb. 25 and 28, “The Dark Crystal” will be screened in over 500 movie theaters across the U.S. at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. (local time).

“The Dark Crystal” is a 1982 fantasy adventure film telling the story of Jen, an elf-like “Gelfling” on a journey to restore the balance to his alien world through returning the lost shard to a broken, powerful gem. This film was considered groundbreaking for its use of animatronics and special effects.

This special two-night screening will be presented by Fathom Events, The Jim Henson Company and Universal Pictures. Each screening of “The Dark Crystal” will also include a new featurette with Lisa Henson, President and CEO of The Jim Henson Company, as she reflects on this film and its legacy.

Following this limited theatrical release, “The Dark Crystal” will be released on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and digital on March 6.
