A fun family movie in theaters now: Despicable Me 2 - Gru (Steve Carell) is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help deal with a powerful new super criminal. What a fun sequel to the first Despicable Me (2010) where Gru who claimed to be a criminal mastermind used a trio of orphan girls as pawns in a grand scheme. Instead of villainous glory he finds their love is profoundly changing him for the better. With the jokes flying (for adults, too), "Minions" running amuck and sharp graphics, kids find both of these movies so much fun!
There was a showing of Despicable Me at the Evergreen Library in July to a very enthusiastic crowd of young patrons.
Every third Saturday at 1:30 p.m. Evergreen Children’s staff presents a family movie in their series, Saturday at the Movies. We serve popcorn and offer drinks while families watch movies on the big screen in the meeting room.
