"Little Shop of Horrors," the 1986 movie musical directed by Frank Oz, will be screened at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens, Oct. 29-30 in conjunction with the museum's Jim Henson's Fantastic World exhibition.

The film, featuring Rick Moranis and Ellen Greene, centers on down-and-out floral assistant Seymour Krelborn (Moranis) who discovers a man-eating plant, Audrey II, an elaborate puppet created by Henson Creature Shop alumnus Lyle Conway.

The screenings, free with admission to the museum, will be held Oct. 29 at 1 PM and 4 PM and Oct. 30 at 1 PM.

A Conversation with Frank Oz, in which the puppeteer and director will talk about his experiences performing Rowlf the Dog, his creation of Miss Piggy's feisty persona and his successful directorial career, will also be held at the museum Oct. 23 at 2 PM.

Oz, known for creating characters such as Miss Piggy and Cookie Monster, is also the director of such films as "The Muppets Take Manhattan," which will also be screened at the museum next month, and "Death at a Funeral," "In & Out" and "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels."

The Museum of the Moving Image is located at 36-01 35 Avenue in Astoria. For more information, visit www.movingimage.us.
