Follow That Frog! The Muppet Movie is Returning to Theaters- Here’s Where to See it in Kalamazoo
Life is movin' right along (doog-a-doon, doog-a-doon) and 'The Muppet Movie' is back in theaters marking its 40th anniversary. Here's where you can see it in Kalamazoo.
Long before film critic sites like Rotten Tomatoes, we had Statler and Waldorf:
Statler: Well, how do you like the film?
Waldorf: I’ve seen detergents that leave a better film than this.
How can you not love 'The Muppet Movie'? It's an epic road trip, the tale of a frog following his dream and searching for the rainbow connection we all long for. Fozzie Bear is the faithful companion in his Studebaker, with Miss Piggy as the bacon-scented love interest. Villainous Doc Hopper is the bad guy who wants to serve up Kermit's legs at his restaurant. Along the journey, we meet Gonzo, Scooter, Jack ("Jack not name, jack job"), Dr Bunson Honeydew and Beaker, and let's not forget Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem with Animal the drummer. Big Bird even makes a cameo as Fozzie offers to give him a lift. "No thanks," he replies, "I'm going to New York to try and catch a break on public television."
The film made $76 million in 1976 and seven other muppet movies would follow, but this is the only one that matters. Take the kids and relive your childhood as 'The Muppet Movie' returns to the big screen nationwide and in Kalamazoo. You can see it on Thursday afternoon, July 25 at 12:30 or the following Tuesday evening at 7 pm- bith shows are at Celebration Cinema Crossroads.
Keep Kermit's dream alive:
Well, I have a dream too, but it’s about singing and dancing and making people happy. It’s the kind of dream that gets better the more people you share it with. And I found a whole group of friends who have the same dream, and that makes us sort of like a family.
