Hello fellow Geekinators! Summer cartoons are a go and next up on the list is Despicable Me 2! I will also be doing a dinner Meetup beforehand at The Elephant Bar, for those who can make it to both. This is opening day, so it's best to get tickets online or at least an hour before the movie starts. I highly recommend purchasing them online at home or on your mobile device the night before. (For those of you going to The Elephant Bar as well, you can get yours before you head to the 1st Meetup.) This will be the 2D showing at 8:10pm.
Synopsis: Gru is no longer a villain after saving his three adopted daughters Margo, Edith, and Agnes from Vector in the first film Despicable Me. His calm and unexciting new life takes an unexpected turn when he is recruited by Lucy Wilde and Silas Ramsbottom and is taken to the headquarters of the Anti-Villain League, a society dedicated to fighting crime on a global scale. There, he discovers that there is a new villain named El Macho on the loose. Because Gru was once a villain himself and knows how they think, Silas (the League's head), wants Gru to help them fight the villain. With the help of Gru's assistant, Dr. Nefario, his minions, Margo, Edith, and Agnes, Gru must save the world ("again").
