“The Muppet Movie” is the story of Kermit the Frog, who is persuaded by an agent to pursue a career in Hollywood. Along the way, Kermit picks up Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, The Great Gonzo, and a motley crew of other Muppets with similar aspirations. Meanwhile, Kermit must elude the grasp of a frog-leg restaurant magnate.

This is the third movie in the summer series. Movies are selected by popular vote among faculty and staff.
