On a remote planet in the distant past, a Gelfling embarks on a quest to find the missing shard of a magical crystal, to restore order to his world. Using a mix of puppetry, animatronics, modern special effects, and more, The Dark Crystal creates a sense of visual astonishment rarely equaled in fantasy filmmaking. Recommended for ages 8+

Before or after the screening, visit Jim Henson’s World to see behind-the-scenes material from the film (plus find Star Wars memorabilia and play classic arcade games).
