Ticket Giveaway: Jim Henson Muppets Retrospective

Our friends over at the Gene Siskel Film Center are offering up 10 pairs of tickets for use during their upcoming film series, Muppets¢"ž¢, Music, & Magic: Jim Henson's Legacy.‚ From November 8th through December 4th, the Film Center will be hosting a major retrospective of the innovative film and puppetry work of the legendary Jim Henson. Highlights include the classics like The Muppet Movie and The Great Muppet Caper, but you can also catch some lesser known Henson works like‚ Labyrinth and the truly creepy The Dark Crystal. We have 10 pairs of tickets to give away. 2 pairs will be the grand prize, and can be used for special screenings with appearances by longtime Henson collaborator David Rudman (the voice of Cookie Monster!) on November 8th and 9th. The 8 remaining pairs can be used at any of the remaining screenings in the series. Click here to enter, and we'll draw the winning names next Wednesday, November 5th. Here's a clip of my favorite Muppet Movie song (sorry, I'm not a Rainbow Connection kind of guy). And check out this link for some top musical cameos from The Muppet Show.
