King County Parks’ popular Movies@Marymoor outdoor cinema series is teaming up with the Experience Music Project | Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame (EMP|SFM) to the Wednesday, Aug. 5 screening of “The Muppet Movie.”
A beloved family classic, “The Muppet Movie” features some of Jim Henson’s most recognizable creations and characters, including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and Fozzie Bear. EMP|SFM will be at Marymoor Aug. 5 to provide moviegoers with pre-movie entertainment, games, prizes and other activities that are perfect for Muppets fans of all ages.
Seating opens at 7 p.m., and the movie will begin at dusk. Admission is free, and a $5 per person or $15 per family donation is suggested, which helps King County Parks underwrite the movie series.
