To celebrate its 40th anniversary, “The Muppet Movie” will return to theaters for two days only this July.
The film will play in over 700 movie theaters on Thursday, July 25 and Tuesday, July 30, at 12:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. local time through Fathom Events.
The film stars Kermit (performed by Jim Henson) Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear (performed by Frank Oz), Gonzo (performed by Dave Goelz) and his chicken Camilla (performed by Jerry Nelson), Scooter (performed by Richard Hunt), and Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem as they travel to Hollywood – where fame and fortune calls them.
“‘The Muppet Movie’ is a cinematic treasure, a delightful film that may have been made 40 years ago but is truly timeless, thanks both to its iconic characters and to its always-stirring theme of following your dreams and believing in your own abilities,” said Tom Lucas, vice president of Studio Relations for Fathom Events. “This film’s return to the big screen is very well deserved and we are happy to work with The Jim Henson Company and Universal Pictures to give it a proper nationwide re-release.”
