Jim Henson’s ‘Labyrinth’ to Return to Theaters for 35th Anniversary

1 Min Read

The 80s produced iconic moments in pop culture history, but arguably one of the most memorable (at least nowadays) is Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. This September, the fan-favorite film will return to theaters for its 35th anniversary.

For three days, September 12, September 13, and September 15, Labyrinth will be in select theaters nationwide. The screenings will have a featurette entitled “The Henson Legacy.” Jennifer Connelly and the Henson family discuss the art of puppetry and Henson. There will also be a visit to the Center for Puppetry arts that features the Jim Henson Collection.

Labyrinth follows a 16-year-old girl named Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) who after another night of babysitting her baby brother, Toby, grows frustrated and summons Goblins to take him away. Sarah must rescue him from a world of magic and an elaborate maze filled with deception created by the Goblin King, Jareth (David Bowie).

Find out if Labyrinth is screening in a theater near you on the Fathom Events website.
