Coolidge Corner Theatre Kids Shows
The Muppet Movie
Sunday, February 6 @ 10:30 a.m.
They’re irreverent, irrepressible, and downright irresistible. They’re the Muppets! — starring in their first full-length movie. See how their meteoric rise to fame and fortune began: with a rainbow, a song . . . and a Frog. After a fateful meeting with a big-time talent agent, Kermit the Frog heads for Hollywood dreaming of showbiz. Along the way, Fozzie Bear, the Great Gonzo, and the dazzling Miss Piggy join him in hopes of becoming film stars too. But all bets are off when Kermit falls into the clutches of Doc Hopper (Charles Durning), a fast-food mogul seeking to promote his French-fried frog-leg franchise! Featuring Oscar-nominated music and side-splitting appearances by some of the biggest names on the silver screen — including Steve Martin, Mel Brooks, Orson Welles, and more!
Recommended for ages 5+. Tickets: $7 for adults, $5 for children, and free for lapsitters!
Alexander King of Jesters
Saturday, February 12, @ 10:30
It’s easy to imagine a court jester – the colorful trickster with bells jingling from his floppy hat. But have you ever seen one perform in real time? A rare treat, indeed! Enter the world of the Wise Fool, and take an inspiring journey to Medieval times. A Coolidge regular, Alex the Jester has performed his physical comedy on Showtime, America’s Got Talent, Off-Broadway in NY, and at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. Recommended for ages 3+. Tickets: $9.75 adults, $7.75 children, and free for lapsitters!
