"The Muppet Movie" hits theaters for two days to celebrate 40th anniversary

It's a childhood favorite: The Muppet Movie turns 40 this year, and to celebrate the film is returning to movie theaters, according to Entertainment Weekly. The film will screen in 700 theaters - including some here in the area - July 25th & 30th at 12:30pm and 7pm. You can get theater details and tickets here, just put in your zip code.

Directed by James Frawley, The Muppet Movie included Oscar-nominated music composed by the likes of Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher. Songs like “The Rainbow Connection,” “Can You Picture That?,” and “Movin’ Right Along” became classics. Along with our favorite Muppets (and Big Bird), the movie features cameos from Orson Welles, Steve Martin, Mel Brooks, and others.

Since this won't happen in theaters until next month, let's enjoy one of my favorite road trip songs as a kid while we wait: "Movin' Right Along" as Fozzie Bear and Kermit go for a ride:
