“Where the Crawdads Sing” – (NR; 2 hours, 5 minutes) - Stars Daisy Edgar-Jones as Kya, a young woman who survives abandonment by her mother and abuse from her father to make a life for herself in the marshes of a fictional town in North Carolina. The film toggles between Kya’s traumatizing childhood and the present where, following her father's death, she has found new love and made a career as a self-taught expert on local marsh wildlife. When she is accused of murdering her ex-lover (Chase Andrews, the town celebrity), Kya must defend her innocence against all odds. It's a gripping story that ultimately asks us to question right and wrong and the nature of justice beyond the law. Final shows at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 27 and Thursday, July 28.
“Minions: The Rise of Gru” – (PG; 1 hour, 27 minutes) - The Minions are back! After an absence of five years, those crazy little guys in their blue and yellow suits are on the screen again, giving us more of their gibberish and playful antics. The animated series, originally geared to young kids, has become a cult favorite for teenagers; even adults find them irresistible.
In this version, Gru (Steve Carell), long before he becomes the master of evil, is just a 12-year-old boy in 1970s suburbia, plotting to take over the world from his basement. It’s not going particularly well. When Gru crosses paths with the Minions, including Kevin, Stuart, Bob, and Otto, and a new Minion sporting braces with a desperate need to please—this unexpected family joins forces. Together, they build their first lair, design their first weapons, and strive to execute their first missions. Young Gru tries to join a group of supervillains called the Vicious 6 after they oust their leader -- the legendary fighter Wild Knuckles. When the interview turns disastrous, Gru and his Minions go on the run with the Vicious 6 hot on their tails. Luckily, he finds an unlikely source for guidance -- Wild Knuckles himself -- and soon discovers that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.
