Summer Film Series: Dark Crystal
July 10, 12:00 pm – 9:30 pm
The second film in our Summer Film Series is Jim Henson’s Dark Crystal (1982). Henson redefined fantasy filmmaking with this film—filled with puppet-animated creatures, it takes us on a quest to find a magical crystal that will restore order to his world. Join us for background on Dark Crystal as Ward Emling, retired director of the Mississippi Film Commission, previews the film at noon. The full-length film will be screened at 8pm, doors open at 7:30. Rated PG-13, film length 1 hour 33 minutes.
Other films in the series: Dark Crystal, 7/10; Girls! Girls! Girls!, 7/17; and The Lion King, 8/21. Both events are free open to the public.
