No decade did fantasy films better than the '80s, and The Dark Crystal, co-directed by The Muppets' Jim Henson and Frank Oz, is one of the favorites of the era. Filled with imaginative characters and beautiful imagery, this somewhat dark family adventure centers Jen, an elflike creature called a Gelfling, who is on a quest to find a lost shard of a powerful but broken gem in order to restore balance to the world. However, he first must defeat the evil Skeksis. Catch this cult classic at San Diego's Balboa Theatre.
