Got any plans tomorrow night (Friday, June 14)? If not, you’re in luck. You can catch a free movie in Sunnyside!
At 7 p.m. in Noonan Park, there will be an outdoor screening of “The Muppets Take Manhattan.”
Here’s the movie’s plot: When Kermit the Frog and friends start a stage act, they decide to take the show from their college town to Broadway. However, once the Muppets wind up in New York City, they have difficulty finding financial support for the production, instead running into cheats like Murray Plotsky (Dabney Coleman). Unable to stage the show, the group splits up, and they all take different jobs around the country. Just as Kermit thinks he has finally found a backer, an accident gives him amnesia.
If you’d like to further explore the Muppets, head over to the Museum of the Moving Image to check out the permanent Jim Henson exhibit.
Noonan Park is located at 47th Ave & Greenpoint Ave, btwn 42nd & 43rd Streets, in Sunnyside.
