For three days in September, you can witness the magic that is Jim Henson’s musical fantasy adventure Labyrinth in theatres! You’ve got to be as old as I am if you remember seeing this piece of art on the big screen and falling in love with Jennifer Connelly.
Fathom Events is hosting the event, which takes place on September 12th, 13th, and 15th. So, clear your calendars on that Sunday, Monday, or Wednesday, and join David Bowie’s Goblin King as he snatches a baby and accosts us with his bulge!
It must have been some voodoo that somebody … doodoo (?) which caused this to happen. Regardless, we can all do the Magic Dance and toss babies in the air and rejoice that something good is happening during Covid Year 2.
The 35th Anniversary screenings of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth will be preceded by a brief featurette entitled “The Henson Legacy” – Jennifer Connelly and the Henson family talk about the art of puppetry and the magic of Jim Henson, along with a visit to the “Center for Puppetry Arts” featuring The Jim Henson Collection and over 100 puppets from Labyrinth!
Labyrinth was released in 1986 and sadly did not do well during its initial run. However, VHS sales and rentals later boosted those numbers. The film and its characters have become icons and enjoy more than just a cult following today.
The fantasy feature was directed by Jim Henson and featured amazing creations from his Muppet artists. Labyrinth is a mixture of comedy, drama, lighthearted fantasy, and some darker elements. The rapid-fire pace in which the film’s mood changes could be due to several writers, including Python alum Terry Jones and the father of Star Wars, George Lucas.
Labyrinth will be in theatres for three days only. So head over to Fathom Events now and secure your admission!
