A young Gru tries to join the ranks of the all-star baddies called the Vicious 6 after they kick out their longtime leader. But the aspiring evildoer quickly learns that your heroes can't always be trusted, a mistake that leaves him on the run with nothing but his wits and a small army of Minions.

July 15 & July 17: Sing 2
Buster Moon takes his roster of singing and dancing animals to Redshore City to reach new heights and a larger audience.

July 22 & July 24: The Secret Life of Pets
Max, a small terrier living in a New York City apartment, lives a life of comfy beds, endless bowls of dog food, and all kinds of luxury.

Gru has forsaken a life of crime to raise Margo, Agnes, and Edith. He's trying to figure out how to provide for his new family when the Anti-Villain League, an organization dedicated to fighting evil, comes calling. The AVL sends Gru on a mission to capture the perpetrator of a spectacular heist, for who would be better than the world's greatest ex-villain to capture the individual who seeks to usurp his power?

August 12 & August 14: Despicable Me 3
The mischievous Minions hope that Gru will return to a life of crime after the new boss of the Anti-Villain League fires him.
