The Lego Batman Movie
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The Lego Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble - LEGO Batman - stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham and if he wants to save the city from the Joker's hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone-vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up. This movie event including activities and door prizes is part of the "Build A Better World" Summer Reading Program. Rated PG for rude humor and some action and runs 104 minutes.
