Where: State Theatre New Jersey, 15 Livingston Ave. New Brunswick
If you can’t make one free summer movie showing, don’t worry there are two different showing times for “The Great Muppet Caper”. This is a free summer movie at the State Theatre New Jersey. When London’s most famous fashion designer, Lady Holiday, reports her priceless diamond necklace stolen, investigative reporters Kermit and Fozzie are on the case! All the evidence points to Miss Piggy; it’s up to Kermit and his Muppet sleuths to catch the real robbers red-handed before Miss Piggy winds up in the pen! Will they be able to solve the crime of the century? You’ll have to watch to find out.
