Saturday family classics at Liberty Hall

TYLER, July 14, 2014 -- During the month of July, come to the City of Tyler’s Liberty Hall Saturday afternoons to enjoy some great classic family film favorites.

July 19, at 3 p.m., come see “The Dark Crystal” from 1982, by Muppet creator Jim Henson. On another planet, over 1,000 years ago, the mysterious Dark Crystal was damaged by one of the Urskeks and an age of chaos began. The evil race of grotesque birdlike lizards, the Skeksis, now rules the planet with an iron claw. Meanwhile the orphan Jen, raised in solitude by a race of the peace-loving wizards called the Mystics, embarks on a quest to find the missing shard of the Dark Crystal which gives the Skesis their power and can restore the balance to the universe. For sci-fi fans of all ages.

Then on July 26, at 3 p.m., see the 1939 classic “The Wizard of Oz.” A favorite for more than 75 years, watch Dorothy get blown to Oz in a tornado and then follow the yellow brick road to find her way home again. Of course, no great film would be complete without a villain, and the Wicked Witch of the West fills the bill. Shown on the big screen, you will see things you have never seen before.

Movie tickets are available online at www.LibertyTyler.com or at the door for $7. Be sure to “Like” Liberty Hall on Facebook for daily updates.
