Join Kermit and Miss Piggy singing live on stage for this special screening of the new film Muppets Most Wanted, starring Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell and Tina Fey. Plus, after the movie, you'll get a behind-the-scenes peek at Muppets props and costumes, like Animal's drum set and Miss Piggy's wardrobe -- including her Vivienne Westwood couture wedding gown. While on a tour across Europe's most scenic destinations, The Muppets unwittingly find themselves entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine, the World's Number One Criminal -- who also happens to be a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog.

Set in Roman Egypt, 400 A.D., this compelling historical drama follows Hypatia (Rachel Weisz), a Greek woman and mathematician, astronomer and philosopher bravely struggling to save the wisdom of classical antiquity in the midst of religious war.
Filming took place on the island of Malta, where production designer Guy Hendrix Dyas re-created large parts of the city on location, further extended with the help of computer-generated imagery. The construction of the main set employed almost 400 people, and was the largest ever built on the island.
Production designer Guy Hendrix Dyas recently earned an Oscar nomination for his work on Inception, has been nominated for three consecutive Art Directors Guild Awards (winning this year for Inception), and became the first British designer to win Spain’s prestigious Goya Award for Best Production Design for his work on Agora. In this in-person tribute to the designer, Dyas will participate in a discussion alongside Agora set decorator Larry Dias following the film.Production designer John Muto will moderate.
