Jim Henson's animatronic cult fantasy movie is visually stunning and a triumph of the imagination. The popular new television series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance serves as the prequel to this classic fantasy film.
One thousand years ago, the Dark Crystal was damaged by one of the Urskeks and an age of chaos began. Now the time of the great conjunction of the three suns is near. If the Crystal is not healed now, the evil Skeksis will have control forever. Jen, the last of the Gelflings nearly exterminated by monsters controlled by the Skeksis, starts his dangerous journey to find the missing shard of the Crystal.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with puppeteer and voice artist Louise Gold, Mechanical Effects Supervisor Ian Wingrove, and Art Director Terry Ackland-Snow.
