This Sunday, March 5, join SIFF Cinema Egyptian as they participate in the first ever Reel Film Day, a chance for theaters around the world to champion the glory of 35mm film.

For this year’s festivities, SIFF will screen the 1981 Jim Henson classic, The Great Muppet Caper. From SIFF:

“Busby Berkeley has nothing on the Muppets! This show-stopping musical finds intrepid journalists Kermit and Fozzie heading to London, hot on the trail of the jewel thief who stole the fabulous Baseball diamond from couture’s toast of London, Lady Holiday (Diana Rigg). Surprisingly, Kermit falls hard for Holiday’s secretary, Miss Piggy, whose life’s ambition is to become one of Holiday’s runway models. Charles Grodin and John Cleese are hysterical as Holiday’s loutish brother and a very proper English gentleman.”

Kids under 12 will be admitted free and get a free small popcorn to boot! Just feast your eyes on this old school trailer. I dare you not to get nostalgic.
