What is billed as a very Muppet evening with a screening of The Muppets Take Manhattan and special guest speaker Roscoe Orman, AKA Gordon from Sesame Street, will help support the charitable outreach of the non-profit Puppetry Arts.
The Muppets Take Manhattan, first released in 1984, will be shown one night only, Thursday, Nov. 12, at 8 p.m. at the Regal Cinemas Stadium 12 at Court and State Streets. In the movie, Kermit and the gang move to the Big Apple to bring their show Manhattan Melodies to the Broadway stage when Kermit goes missing.
Sesame Street Dad Roscoe Orman will talk before the screening about his experiences as Gordon working with Jim Henson and the Sesame Street Muppets. There will also be movie-fun giveaways and a performance by the cast from the Puppetry Arts
musical â€śAnthropomorphicâ€ť which will appear this Dec. 12 and 13 at the Court Street Regal Cinemas.

Tickets are available through the Puppetry Arts web site, www.puppetryarts.org, or on the event date at the UA Court Street 12 Regal Cinemas, 106 Court St.
