The CineFamily presents this three-week series of screenings on Friday nights in July, including THE MUPPET MOVIE, MUPPET FAIRY TALES, and LABYRINTH. Things kick off on Friday, July 10 with MUPPET HISTORY 101 & MUPPET MUSIC MOMENTS at 8:00pm, followed by THE DARK CRYSTAL at midnight.

From the official website:

In conjunction with The Jim Henson Legacy and the Jane Henson Foundation, Cinefamily pays tribute to one of the world's most inspired and innovative film and puppetry artists, Jim Henson. A visionary TV producer and a world-class puppeteer, Henson and his team created indelible, hilarious, vulnerable and crazy characters like Kermit The Frog, Bert and Ernie, the Gelflings and the Skeksis, and The Swedish Chef (one of our personal favorites), and brought a unique combination of childlike wonder and adult sophistication to their groundbreaking work. This month-long series will explore all facets of Henson's prolific output, including experimental work, rarities and some of his most beloved feature films.
