Directed by Jim Henson & Frank Oz | 1982

With Jim Henson, Kathryn Mullen, Frank Oz, Dave Goelz, Steve Whitmire

“A dazzling technological and artistic achievement by a band of talented artists and performers.”
—Variety

Jim Henson, Frank Oz, illustrator Brian Froud, and an extraordinary team of collaborators created a richly realized fantasy world unlike any other in the cult classic The Dark Crystal. Given the chance to work with more complex material, Henson let his imagination run wild, wondrously aided by then-state-of-the-art animatronics. Hosted by DarkCrystal.com, this one-night-only celebration features a screening of the film, appearances by Brian and Wendy Froud, the New York premiere of Toby Froud’s acclaimed new short film Lessons Learned, a reading by Dark Crystal Author Quest winner J. M. Lee, and much more. Fans are encouraged to wear their favorite costumes!
