Directed by Jim Henson of The Muppets, Emmet Otter’s Jug band Christmas is a light-hearted movie that is family friendly with great moral lessons.
Emmet Otter is the son of a single mother and both are desperate to gift eachother with something nice this Christmas. Down on their luck, the Otter family has little money.
However, there is a talent competition with a monetary prize that could save Christmas! Come see this 1977 classic in our Dorothy K. Hohenberg auditorium!
Light Festival: Sunday, December 13 | 4 – 6pm
After the movie, come up to the rotunda where you’ll be greeted by carolers! Play the dreidel game, make a paper snowflake and a handmade holiday card with your kids! Next, have your facepainted for the festive holiday season! Listen to the Last Chance Jug Band and reminisce about the movie!
Then, take a picture with santa by the Christmas tree, have your portrait made by either a caricature or silhouette artists-all for only $5 each! After you and your family have recorded your memories, go through an adventurous scavenger hunt in the galleries!
Enjoy Lex Bonner in the Brushmark as he plays piano into the night while munching on complimentary holiday goodies like cookies and hot cocoa. When you’re all finished, grab a free candy cane as you walk out and head to the Levitt Shell for a free Light Festival or take a relaxing carriage ride!
