The Muppets take Chicago...again

As if we needed proof of how much everybody loves the Muppets, the Gene Siskel Film Center notes that the response to its “Muppets, Music & Magic: Jim Henson’s Legacy” series last fall was so huge, they’re bringing it back for another run (well, most of it).

Through December 2, the Center will show a number of films from the series, including Saturday’s one-time-only show of “Muppets History 201: More Rarities from the Henson Vault,” a followup to the popular Muppets History 101 from last year. In addition to several other compilations, you’ll also be able to see special screenings of feature films like “The Muppet Movie” (celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2009), “The Muppets Take Manhattan,” “Labyrinth” and “The Dark Crystal.” Check out the website for the full schedule.
