Museum of the Moving Image to Host Muppet Holiday Screenings
In 2015, the Museum will open a permanent gallery devoted to the work of Jim Henson that will showcase many of the puppets, costumes, and other production materials donated to the Museum by the family of Jim Henson.
Tickets for screenings are included with paid Museum admission ($12 adults / $9 seniors and students / $6 children 3-12 / free for Museum members); there is a materials fee for participating in the workshop. Museum members may reserve tickets in advance.
Programs in the series Jim Henson's World are organized by Craig Shemin, President of The Jim Henson Legacy. The Legacy is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization that is dedicated to preserving and perpetuating Jim Henson's contributions to the worlds of puppetry, television and motion pictures, special effects and media technology.
