"The Muppet Movie" returns to more than 700 movie theaters nationwide this July. The film will play on July 25th and July 30th, at 12:30pm and 7:00pm local time each of those days, courtesy of Fathom Events, The Jim Henson Company and Universal Pictures.
“The Muppet Movie is a cinematic treasure, a delightful film that may have been made 40 years ago but is truly timeless, thanks both to its iconic characters and to its always-stirring theme of following your dreams and believing in your own abilities,” said Tom Lucas, Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations. “This film’s return to the big screen is very well deserved and we are happy to work with The Jim Henson Company and Universal Pictures to give it a proper nationwide re-release.”
The Muppet Movie was a massive box office hit, and it was Oscar nominated for the film’s iconic theme song “The Rainbow Connection,” as performed by Kermit with music and lyrics by Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher. The film also featured a litany of major Hollywood stars, including Charles Durning, Dom DeLuise, James Coburn, Madeline Kahn, Carol Kane, Elliot Gould, Bob Hope, Richard Pryor, Steve Martin, Mel Brooks, Cloris Leachman, and Orson Welles.
