THE DARK CRYSTAL
USA/UK 1982 93min PG
Directed by Jim Henson & Frank Oz
Starring Jim Henson, Kathryn Mullen, Frank Oz, Fizzgig

A thousand years ago, the fabled Urskeks broke the hallowed Dark Crystal and in doing so, splintered themselves into two races, the Skeksis and the Mystics. The Skeksis crave power and luxury, regarding each other with fear and suspicion, and terrorize those they rule over, whereas the Mystics are the opposite, living simply and nurturing what remains from the Skeksis’ grasp. The Mystics have been hiding and raising Jen, an orphaned Gelfling, but now as The Great Conjunction approaches no one can escape the destiny that awaits them. Where does Jen’s path lead, and can he escape the notice of the wicked Skeksis, who treasure the Gelfling life essence as their own fountain of youth? This is Jim Henson’s THE DARK CRYSTAL, a dramatic and memorable fantasy movie considered a failure when it first came out in theatres but has since been elevated as one of his master works. Join us on February 24 at 1:30 PM for this one day presentation and marvel at the imagination and artistry of this now beloved film.
