The magic of Jim Henson comes to Marymoor Park’s outdoor screening of ‘The Muppet Movie’

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.

EMP|SFM is currently hosting “Jim Henson’s Fantastic World” traveling exhibit through Aug. 16. As a special treat, EMP|SFM is giving all those who donate at the movies a free two-for-one pass to the Jim Henson exhibit.

“Jim Henson’s Fantastic World” exhibit features 100 original artworks, including drawings, cartoons and storyboards that illustrate Henson’s creative talents. For more information about EMP|SFM and the “Jim Henson’s Fantastic World” exhibition, click here.
