08:00pm – 10:30pm

Orchestra Hall

Show Times: 3:30 & 8 p.m. Friday, July 28-Thursday, Aug. 3

Directors Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin bring everyone’s favorite minions back to the screen in the newest “Despicable Me” film.

This third installment features stars Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove and more.

The mischievous Minions hope that Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) will return to a life of crime after the new boss of the Anti-Villain League fires him.

Instead, Gru decides to remain retired and travels to Freedonia with Lucy (voiced by Kristen Wiig) to meet his long-lost twin brother, Dru (also voiced by Steve Carell), for the first time.

The reunited siblings soon find themselves in an uneasy alliance to take down the elusive Balthazar Bratt (voiced by Trey Parker), a former 1980s child star who seeks revenge against the world. (90 mins)

Movie Tickets: $7/adult, $3/youth (under age 12)
