Join Cantor Michael and Dr. Ray Feller at our 9th Annual Cantor-Plex Film Series. Our theme this year is "Creation on Film.” Tonight’s movie is The Dark Crystal.

The Dark Crystal is a 1982 fantasy film directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz. This epic film, set on the alien planet Thra, was billed at the time of its release as the first live-action film without any human being on screen. The story follows Jen, a young Gelfling, as he sets out on a quest to heal the Dark Crystal and save his planet from the rule of evil Skeksis.

As always, popcorn, soda and movie candy will be available, as well as craft beer (for those of age).
