    Hey folks,

    The weekend of April 20th the Brattle theater in Harvard square is having Muppet Madness! They will be showing a bunch of Muppet/Henson movies including a triple feature of the muppet movie, the great muppet caper and muppets take manhatten.

    Here's a link to all the details:

    Hope to see some of you there.

    I'd love to go to one of those, but I can't make up my mind of which one I want to see... the Triple Bill of all three movies? The New Movie on a double bill with Being Elmo? The Labyrinth/Dark Crystal showing? I'm sure I wouldn't be able to get all 3 of them...

    Yeah deciding which showing to go to is tough. I'm leaning toward the triple feature as I haven't seen the great muppet caper in twenty years. I'm thinking about bringing my Kermit replica with me! I'd love to see the dark crystal/labyrinth double feature but I have to work that day.

    If I could go, which I can't as I live in the UK, I'd go to the triple feature. I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to see the first 3 Muppet movies at the cinema!!!

    Agreed, there's just something extra special about seeing the originals on the big screen. :)

    It'd be cool to see Being Elmo in a theatre, but I've been watching it a lot on Netflix lately. I'd only attend that screening to share in the audience reaction; I wonder who else would cry during the making time for my daughter, Make a Wish, friendship with Jim, and other emotional segments? ;)

    I think I should mention that the Brattle is a small independant theater. As in a proper theater (think the muppet theater) that has a screen on the stage. Not a big huge multiplex cinema with the giant screen or that kind of atmosphere. It's actually a pretty cool place! I saw a showing of ghostbusters there a while back and someone in line was handing out marshmallows and spoons of fluff. there is usually a great crowd.

    I decided to go to the Labyrinth/Dark Crystal showing... I keep missing Being Elmo on television when it airs, though... but I can only see one, so I'm going to have to go with stuff I haven't seen in ages. otherwise, I own all three classic Muppet Movies on home video.

    I went to see Muppets That Manhattan yesterday at my local cinema, and it was amazing!!! Although I own it on Blu-Ray, and have watched it recently, it was like watching it as new. I was just so happy to be there!
    Not that many people turned up, but that's not at all unusual around here (The only time the cinema has been almost full was when I went to a half-price showing of The Artist!).
    When I was there I found out that next month they are showing Muppet Treasure Island, so I'm hoping to be able to go and see that! And I'm also hoping that they'll show other classic Muppet films soon.

    Did you have a good time?

    Definitely. That's the first time I really watched both movies. I saw at least some of Labyrinth when I was younger on television, but I never saw it air on television again, and I wasn't able to get the DVD's just yet.

    But lemme tell you this. If they do this next year, I'm still going to skip the other Muppet movies and see these ones again, even if I get the DVD's for both of them by then. I really enjoyed them. I don't think I would have appreciated the films as much if I were younger, maybe Labyrinth... but I really think really seeing the Dark Crystal for the first time that day made me enjoy the movie all the more.

    I've never seen them too! I've seen bits of Dark Crystal over the years, but never all of it.
    I was recently given Labyrinth on Blu-Ray, so I'll have to watch it soon.
