ACMI – Muppets, Music and Magic: Jim Henson’s Legacy

I keep an eye on the Cinefamily Vimeo channel and saw the trailer for a Jim Henson program come up.

Also one of the ads made by Jim Henson back in the day

Although it is always good to hear about a Jim Henson film program, I could only watch the trailer and hope it came down to Australia one day. I had enjoyed the Focus on Jim Henson program in 2008 and was looking forward to seeing more Muppet related films and documentaries.

I only went to a couple of the sessions last time plus an “in the studio” event at ACMI, this time I wanted to go see a few more over a couple of weeks.

Since 2010 I have not been watching the Grand Final and enjoy doing something else on the day. I did go to the Astor Theatre for a few years, but they do not have anything on that day until the evening.

Muppet Musical Moments
Jim Henson’s Tales from Muppetland

Keeping with the puppet theme, I have been seeing updates from the Impromptunes for their new puppet based show.
