Kermit, Fozzie and Miss Piggy, please meet Angelina Jolie
and son Pax, 8, and daughters Zahara, 6, and Shiloh, 5, who were out on a movie date in Manhattan on Saturday afternoon.
Their flick of choice? The family holiday hit The Muppets
One witness at the Clearview Cinemas on East 62nd Street told PEOPLE that the concession-stand snacks of choice were five orders of popcorn, five cups of Sprite and one box of Twizzlers. (Another adult woman accompanied the group to the show.)
An observer inside the mulitiplex added that the quintet sat right in the middle of the auditorium and that Jolie, 36, was "really down to earth. When they came out [afterwards] she was talking to the kids about the movie and asking them what they thought of different characters. She seemed really cool."
