Tickets range from $5-8.

Wreck-It Ralph tells the story of video game character Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and his journey to shed his Bad Guy image and become a hero. When a first-person shooter game arrives at the arcade, Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness. He sneaks into the game intending to win a medal but soon wrecks everything, accidentally unleashing a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralph’s only hope, Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman), a young troublemaking “glitch” from a candy-coated racing game, must teach him what it means to be a Good Guy.

Frozen, presented by Walt Disney Animation Studios, features the story of Anna (voice of Kristen Bell), the fearless optimist, as she embarks on an epic journey to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), who uses her icy powers to trap the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Anna teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven who she meets along the way.

The LEGO Movie is an animated film that follows lead character, Emmet (voice of Chris Pratt), a completely ordinary LEGO mini-figure who is identified as the most “extraordinary person” and the key to saving the LEGO universe. Emmet and his friends go on an epic journey to stop the evil tyrant, Lord Business (voice by Will Ferrell), and his diabolical plans to freeze the world.

Despicable Me 2 continues the story of Gru (voice of Steve Carell), the ex-supervillian, as he adjusts to family life and attempts an honest living in the jam business. A secret Arctic laboratory is stolen and the Anti-Villain League decides it needs an insider’s help and recruits Gru in the investigation.

Robert Cray, also a part of the music business since the 1970s, is a musician that uses a mix of rock, soul, jazz, gospel, funk, and R&B. Known for his ability to bring new life to the world of blues, Cray has inspired audiences with Billboard hits such as “Smoking Gun,” “My Last Regret,” “Bad Influence,” and It Can’t Fail.” Rolling Stone magazine’s April 2011 issue recognizes Cray for reinventing the blues and introducing mainstream rock in the form of the blues.
