Join us as we watch this fun, family friendly movie. Bring your blankets and pillows! Children under the age of nine must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared. Rated PG
