‘Despicable Me 3’ to show at Reg Lenna Center for The Arts
The Reg Lenna Center for The Arts continues its fall movie season with the animated family film “Despicable Me 3”, which will show Friday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 23 at 2 p.m. as a sensory-friendly screening.
“Despicable Me 3,” continues the story of Gru (voiced by Steve Carell), Lucy (voiced by Kristen Wiig), their adorable daughters-Margo, Edith and Agnes — and the Minions.
After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down the latest bad guy to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother — a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps — one former super-villain will rediscover just how good it feels to be bad.
“Despicable Me 3” is rated PG and is 96 minutes long. During sensory friendly screenings, the sound will be lower and lights kept up higher to help patrons with sensitivity issues. Also, patrons may move around in the seats and talk during the screening without stigma.
Sensory-friendly matinees are sponsored by Kiwanis of Jamestown and The Resource Center.
Coming up in the Movies @ The Reg series are the war drama “Dunkirk” on Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. and “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” on Oct. 27 at 10 p.m.
The Resource Center’s Sprout Film Festival will be shown for free Sept. 29 at 7:30 p.m.
