“Incredibles 2” –  Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back – but this time Mrs. Incredible/Helen Parr (Elastigirl) is in the spotlight, out saving the world, while Mr. Incredible/Bob Parr stays at home with Violet and Dash to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all “incredible.” Voices of Holly Hunter, Craig Nelson, Sophia Bush, Isabella Rossellini, and writer and director Brad Bird himself. Rated PG 118 minutes Opening June 15, 7 p.m., continues June 16-21, nightly at 7 p.m., with a Sunday matinee on June 17 at 2 p.
