THE DARK CRYSTAL
1982, Universal, 93 min, USA, Dir: Jim Henson, Frank Oz

Legendary Muppets creator Jim Henson was inspired by a Lewis Carroll poem to create his own fairy tale about Jen, the last surviving Gelfling, who is sent by his dying master on an epic quest to fulfill his destiny to heal the fractured Dark Crystal. After three years of brainstorming with a team that included renowned fantasy artist Brian Froud and screenwriter David Odell, Henson wove the ideas into a story that was fleshed out by Odell, and the task shifted to bringing those words and images to life in this charming film, which used then-state-of-the-art technology to create a groundbreaking alchemy of puppetry and electronics on a scale never before attempted.


Film also screens on June 15. | Special Ticket Prices: $15 General, $13 Cinematheque Members. No vouchers.
