Celebrate Christmas with the whole family at this very special screening of Jim Henson’s classic holiday tale about Emmet and Ma, who are poor but loving musical folk in Frogtown Hollow. With Christmas coming, they want to give each other a present. A solution to tight-money problems appears in the form of a talent contest offering a $50 prize. This story, adapted by Jerry Juhl from a book by Russell and Lillian Hoban, and featuring original music by Paul Williams, was a technological breakthrough for its time as it marked the first use of radio controlled puppets.
