THE DARK CRYSTAL
directed by Jim Henson & Frank Oz
USA / 1982 / 93 mins / English

Another planet, another time. 1000 years ago, the Dark Crystal was damaged by one of the Urskeks and an age of chaos began. Now the time of the great conjunction of the three suns is near. If the crystal is not healed now, the control of the evil Skekses will last forever. Jen the last of the Gelflings nearly exterminated by monsters controlled by the Skekses starts his dangerous journey to find the missing shard of the crystal. Will he be able to heal the crystal and restore order on the planet?

Spring is in the air and we can't imagine a better way to kick off our new season of Cool Kids programming than with the 1982 groundbreaking masterpiece, THE DARK CRYSTAL. Words like "genius" and "visionary" are all-too often used nowadays. But they are very apropos when it comes to describing the vision of Jim Henson. Fresh off the success of THE MUPPET MOVIE, Henson wanted to move in a darker, more experimental direction with his innovative muppets. Inspired by the darkness of original Brothers Grimm fairy tales, Henson boldly pushed the boundaries of what a "children's film" could be, believing that children liked the idea of being scared and that this was a healthy emotion for them to deal with.

Even if you've seen this film an umpteenth amount of times, nothing compares to watching THE DARK CRYSTAL on the BIG SCREEN! So bring your friends, your family and especially the uninitiated as this will be an evening you'll never forget!
