See the beloved 1979 The Muppet Movie on a big screen. Kermit the Frog makes his way from his humble origins in a Florida swamp to fabled Hollywood, assembling a team of friends as he goes, including Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, and Gonzo. This enchanting and clever road movie, the first big-screen adventure for the Muppets, features delightful cameos from Madeline Kahn, Steve Martin, Richard Pryor, Orson Welles, and many others, and includes Kermit’s heart-tugging rendition of Paul Williams’s beloved, Oscar-nominated song “The Rainbow Connection.”

As a tribute to the late Harry Belafonte, a great friend of Jim Henson and the Muppets, see a special free screening of The Muppet Show: Harry Belafonte featuring his memorable appearance on The Muppet Show immediately before the film. In this episode, widely hailed as one of the show’s finest, Belafonte performs his biggest hit, “Day-O,” a drum battle with Animal, and the powerful “Turn the World Around,” accompanied by new Muppet characters inspired by African masks.
