Movies at the Mercer | THE DARK CRYSTAL (1982): Outdoor Screening

October 19 @ 7:00 pm

On another planet in the distant past, a Gelfling embarks on a quest to find the missing shard of a magical crystal, and so restore order to his world and defeat the wicked Skeksis before darkness reigns forever. Featuring inventive puppetry and set designs courtesy of Jim Henson. DARK CRYSTAL is a wonderfully crafted adventure for the entire family.
• Gates open at 6:30 pm and the movie will begin at dusk (around 7:30 pm).
