The 'Harbison Theatre' in Irmo South Carolina recently held an interactive film screening of the original Muppet Movie. For many children, sitting still and staying quiet during a movie is very difficult. This event provided a unique opportunity for children to engage with a film through song and dance.

As part of a special event called 'All Together Now!,' children were invited to laugh, dance and sing along with the Muppets. The event consisted of a screening of The Muppet Movie, which was brought to life with the addition of live actors, singers and puppeteers on the stage. Children were not only encouraged to sing along with the film, but they were also giveb the opportunity to use beepers, squekers and other toys included in a special goodie bag.

The interactive film event demonstrates how cinemas can combine movies with live actors to cater to the needs of children.
