Will the real Mr. Elmo please stand up? Please stand up…! A little furry red monster turns overnight sensation… but WHERE did he come from? The last of three films we are showcasing this weekend tells the story of Kevin Clash, the 6-foot 6-inch man behind the legend of the lovable little Elmo. This film is not for kids and the behind-the-scenes perspective will help us understand the mystique of Elmo and how Clash’s drive and genius created the phenomenon that has affected generations of kids and parents, past and future.
Come to the Jane Pickens Theater on Saturday at 6pm to see how this inner city Baltimore teenager started with an aspiration and manifested it into a dream come true.
